Title Born in 1896
Description However, the marriage did not go well. They had two very nice boys, Jason and Cory, but divorced. As Rose said, "I wanted to live like you do, but Dennis wanted to live the way the Indians do. He wanted to be free to play and I was to take al] of the responsibilities of the family and the home." We liked Dennis and felt sorry for them. Both boys have graduated from high school and I hope they are attending college. Rose finished her master's degree at the Y and went back to Southern Utah. Arizona, and New Mexico to work with her people. We hear from her occasionally. Thinking of this Placement Program, I don't know if it really helped Wilfred and Rose. I hope so. I know it helped my family and me to have a better understanding of the Indians and some of their problems. I shall always be grateful to Miles Jensen for the work he did in helping the students who came and the families that took them. Because of my contacts with the Indians as a child, the stories my Grandma told and our having had Wilfred and Rose in our home, I shall always have a special feeling in my heart for the Indian People. There are no more empty flour sacks, homemade carts or going begging from house to house. Now, they are all well dressed, drive fine cars and live in good homes, and I'm happy for them. Born In 1896 Sharon B. Stauffer Non Professional Honorable Mention Personal Recollection Vernon H. Brotherson, the youngest of 15 children, was bom November, 30 1896, to Hans Christensen Brotherson, Sr., and Fredricka Jensen Brotherson. His father and mother were children of the original settlers of Mt. Pleasant, His father, Hans, crossed the plains with a handcart company when he was seven years old. His mother, Fredricka, came across the plains with her widowed mother and older sister when she was ten years old. His father arrived in Mt. Pleasant in the spring of 1858, and his mother came the fall of 1862. Vernon's father died when he was four years old. Due to circumstances, he was required to accept responsibilities at a very young age. When he was eight years old, and school was out in the spring, he went with his brother to Indianola and learned to herd sheep. When he was twelve years old, he would herd on his own. He had a horse and a couple of dogs and lived in a tent with a little stove. 45
