Title She Danced Once too Often
Description He could likely smell the food in the tied sack. He came into the shanty again and sniffed around. He stuck his nose under the bed and lifted it and my feet up a few times, I had a little sawed-off shotgun in bed with me, but I knew it would have been foolish to use it. It was loaded with bird shot. Finally, he went back above the shanty and dug roots as before. I remained in bed watching him through the brush. At day break he left, praise be!" Source: Gottfredson Family History and Genealogy, 1910-1931. Written and compiled by Peter Gottfredson. * * * SHE DANCED ONCE TOO OFTEN Wilma Morley Despain 683 North Main Street Alpine, UT 8400 3 Honorable Mention Anecdote Anna Etta Eckersley was a beauty of a girl with deep set, large eyes like pools of dark, brown jewels, She had had a difficult life because of leaving her beautiful, well-ordered home in England to come to America for the gospel's sake. She embraced this precious gospel without her family joining, too, came across the ocean, and landed alone and lonely in New Orleans. Her money lasted only as far as New Orleans, and she worked for her passage as far as Omaha, Nebraska™ There, too, she got a job and worked harder than her early, quite wealthy years had demanded and was sick most of the tirae. She married while working here, but her husband, John Crompton, became ill also, and she lost him and two tiny girls at birth from overwork and improper food. It took her many months to get enough to pay her way to Utah. But people loved her so much for her cheerful, talented life and many tried to court her. 73
