Title My Recollections and Reflections of Grandpa C C A Christensen
Description colors from fruits and berries, flowers and fungus, rusts and soils he gathered from nature. According to Mother, families were important to Grandpa and no doubt his first concern, but he didn't hesitate to take off on a mission for the Church when called by Church authorities. He would leave the farming and hard physical labor to his sons and daughters under the supervision of his wives, especially the family of Elise. In plural marriage with his wife Elise, his first wife, they had six children: three daughters Elisa, Diantha and Pauline, and three sons Charles, Frederick and Erastus. With his plural wife Maren, they had five children: two daughters, Anne and Julia, and three sons, John, Hyrum and Parley. They all were raised to adulthood, much to the credit of good mothers and strong family ties. It was Mother's belief that her father, C.C. A.,cou!d not have carried out his ambitions in Church programs and artistic pursuits without the special support of his wives and sons and daughters. I am proud to be part of the CCA. heritage. Long may his tribe endure. His remains are monumented at the family grave plot in the Ephraim Cemetery. 54
