Title Each Man to His Own Liking
Description Patriarchal Blessing given November 15, 1977, by V. L. Kunz. Notes from Blodwen Parry Olsen, Harmon's sister. Hones and recollections of author, daughter of B. Harmon Parry* THIRD PLACE HISTORICAL ESSAY EACH MAT! TO HIS OWN LIKING Norma WanIass Barton 122 West Union Street Manti, Utah 84642 Jin, Henry and Elmer Dennison were honest, hardworking men, and then whiskey gripped them. They were born in Manti, Sanpete, to honest, hardworking parents: James Christian in 1880, Jacob Henry in 1885, and Elmer in 1896. Their father, Jene Dennison, fought in Utah's Indian Wars. Elmer served in France during World War I, and he was the only one to get married. Henry spoke the slowest and Jim was the funniest. Such are the opinions of the men who lived in that era. Stories that are repeated most often around the campfire are about characters that create uncontrollable laughter to a point where tears course down their cheeks, and they clutch their sides trying to suck air into empty lungs before they pass out. To some, the followijig stories fit that description. Think. It might take a moment to appreciate them! Jim Dennison walked out of Dee Lowry's barber shop and heard the motor's roar as an airplane flew high overhead. His brother, Henry, followed him admiring the distance above that the plane was flying. He called ahead, "Jim, how'd ya like ta be up with that pilot in that there airyplane?" 'Veil sir, I'd sure as *#&* hate to be up there without him," Jim replied in his slow deliberate drawl. The American Legion Hall, now located on Manti Main 18
