Title Fountain Green
Description oiit back. I'd never seen one before. I think it's called an outhouse* I'd lived in modern cities, in modern houses with modern conveniences all my life. I didn't much care about the house though. I could build a new one, I was tired of the pace of the plastic city. I wanted a home where I could live in peace. What were the people like? Would I be free of abuse of power and the threat of gang violence? What kind of wildlife was in the area? Was there a good fishin' spot? My grandparents' farm in Hupert, Idaho, was small, maybe sis acres. Grandpa raised chickens and there always seemed to "be a lamb that needed to be fed, tied up under the cherry tree. As a young child, I would sit next to the wall heater in the kitchen and listen to Grandma tell stories about her grandparents crossing the plains with a handcart. Rees Rees Llewellyn was born the eleventh child of a humble family in South Wales in 1828. In 1854 he married Ann Llewellyn. Both had worked in the coal mines since they were children. At the time of their marriage, neither could write and marked the certificate with an"x." Roes joined the Mormon Church in 1850 and labored for two years as a local missionary, converting many to the faith, including Ann. After their marriage,he and Ann continued to work in the mines* Rees acquired some formal education and was appointed timekeeper. By the time they sailed for the United States in 1856, he was able to read and write well. The decision to come to America meant leaving1 theix loved ones and many of their belongings behind. It was a tearful goodbye when they left their homeland, especially for Ann. She was her mother's only daughter and had been practically disowned when she joined the church. Rees had to promise that he would not take a second wife as was the practice of Mormons at that time. He kept his promise. ¦ 119
