Title A Second Chance for Mary Ann
Description They were endowed and sealed the next day June 19, 1884, in the Endowment House at Salt Lake City They moved to a small farm between Moroni and Chester. Isaac was a good man, and Elizabeth tells of a happy childhood. Their first child and only boy. also named Isaac, was born the next summer. A small log building was their first home, then they built a new larger frame home just to the north on their property. The log home became a very good ice house Mary Ann Reynolds - Isaac Anderson Reynolds Isaac was a handsome, gentle man who always wore a generous mustache, dark at first and later grey. Mary Ann was a very small, pretty, dark-haired woman. She took her second chance and made the most of it. Together they made their life on their small farm It was a lovely place, flat so it was easy to farm and the Sanpitch River ran through it, There were and still are two artesian wells, a large one for the stock and a small one by the house. Small wild life lived near the water and birds sang to them from the trees by the house. Mary Ann loved the green, damp, meadowland where she now lived. It reminded her of England without the fog. She often thought she was about as close to heaven as she could get. She and Isaac had three girls after little Isaac, bom every three years. Now there were six children in this family. Remaining a faithful family, the children were all baptized soon after they turned eight years old. The second daughter, Edith, was a sickly child and died at age fifteen of dropsy. 78
