Description THE UTAH NEWSPAPER HALL OF FAME married after living in Utah a short time and the boys made their home with them until, when Justin was 19, they moved to Lehi. Justin walked 90 miles north to Brigham City, where he found employment, working in the summer and attending school in the winter. From 1863 to 1866 he served an LDS mission in England and then led a company of 450 emigrants to Utah. Starting on January 5, 1866, they reached Salt Lake City in July. Both Justin and his wife were civically active in Brigham City. He was elected to the City Council on August 5, 1867 and later served as City Treasurer and Collector. Ann was secretary of the Women's Sufferage organization as long as it existed in Brigham City and for many years was City Treasurer. As a three-year old, Solomon began to give recitations in Sunday School, speaking in a loud, clear voice poems and prose his mother had taught him. He became well known for this skill and was in demand everywhere in the county, continuing throughout his early life and sometimes being paid as much as a dollar for a presentation. He also had an excellent singing voice and was a member of the the Brigham Tabernacle Choir for 25 years. A trombonist, he played for many years in the Brigham City Band. S. C. Wixom was married on September 5, 1894 to Argen-ta Valentine. To them were born the following children: Mrs. Ben (Violet) Knudson, Eugene C. Wixom and Vern J. Wixom, all of Brigham City; Raynold V. Wixom and Mrs. Rex (Edith) Gleave, of Salt Lake City; Keith S. Wixom of Ogden and Grant A. Wixom of Phoenix, Arizona. Two children, Madeline and Arthur H., died in their youth. Solomon Wixom, after devoting years of service to his newspaper work and his community, passed away on July 9, 1952. His years of labor on papers known for their support of the territory they served and the understanding manner in which news, both good and bad, was presented, identify him as one of 653
