Jacob and Agnes Gubler

BY Academy High School Commercial Class of 1895. Jacob Gubler. Source: Salt Lake Tribune, May 23, 1895. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS BIOGRAPHY: Jacob John (J.J.) and Agnes M. Horsley Gubler were among the group who came to Lund, Utah in the spring of 1899 in response to a call by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to colonize this area. Jacob had been out the fall before, drawn his lots and helped lay the foundation for a native rock home. While he was working hard, and batching it, he remembered the kindness of Rose Whipple who offered to furnish him milk that he might enjoy his favorite supper of bread and milk. When spring came he moved his little family to the valley. Jacob was born in Santa Clara, Utah on June 22, 1870, the fourth and last child of Casper and Katherina Gubler, converts to the Church from Switzerland. He spoke the Swiss German language until he started the first grade of school. Soon after that his mother was to say, "I speak to my boys in Swiss and they answer me in English." Jacob's father took another wife when he was sixteen years of age, and from then on he and his brother, Henry, made their living by growing and peddling fruit. They went as far north as Pioche and other Nevada mining towns to sell their produce. Jacob had expected to be called on a mission for the Church, so was a little hurt when his brother was called instead. However, he carried on alone and supported his brother on his mission to Switzerland. Jacob loved to read and decided he wanted a little higher education so made plans to attend the B.Y. Academy in Provo, Utah. He wanted to look nice as he traveled by stage the first part of his journey, so put on his Sunday suit. Bob O'Donnel, who later also moved to Lund, was the stage driver, and had had a little too much Dixie wine. The team got too lively, also, and "ran away" upsetting the coach and its passengers. No one was seriously hurt, but Jacob landed out in the rocks and tore the seat out of his pants. He had to manage until they got to Modena where he bought a pair of Levis and took the train to Provo. Levis in those days were considered the lowest of wearing apparel, so Jacob was real embarrassed to go register in them Monday morning, and didn't lose any time in getting down town to buy a new suit. His two years in Provo were a highlight in his life; he worked hard to better himself. One of his friends was William Knight, son of Jessie Knight. He became an excellent penman, and formed his ideas on politics there, joining the Republican Party which he always enthusiastically supported from then on, and enjoyed lively political discussions with his friends. On January 29, 1896, he married Agnes Mary Horsley in the St. George Temple. She was born April 8, 1874 in Southport, Lancashire, England, and had come to Utah with her parents when she was four years of age. She could remember the ocean, and folks smiling at her knee-length stockings when they arrived in New York. The family settled in Paragonah, Utah, and Jacob had become acquainted with them as he passed through on his peddling trips. They were now established in a good home in Santa Clara, and had two small children, Ray and Ina, when the call came for volunteers to go to White River Valley to pioneer that area, newly acquired by the Church. Jacob was anxious to go as he said that the farms there weren't large enough to "whip a dog on," but Agnes loved her life there and was very sad to leave her family and friends. Arriving in Lund, they were invited to have dinner with the Alice Carter family; she served rabbit and dumplings. Rabbit was quite a staple food for those early settlers. The first summer was spent in a tent, which was a great trial to Agnes, as her baby girl, Ina, was at the crawling stage. The dust blowing from the never-ending stream of wagons passing by caused an infection in one of her eyes. She suffered agonizing pain with this and lost the sight of her eye. By fall she was able to move into the rock house which was built by her uncle, John P. Horsley. Here her next six children were born. Jacob worked hard clearing the land, grubbing the brush mostly by hand. He was a large man, six foot two, and was able to do the work of several average men. Edmund Hendrix worked for him occasionally and said of him, "He was the only man I ever knew who always took the hardest job himself." He was a man of his word and honest in every respect. He expected everyone to be as honest as he which often brought him some bad deals. These were the days of wild stock schemes, and when high-powered salesmen came to sell him some of these "sure things" he believed what they said and lost his hard-earned money on these worthless stocks. His greatest loss was his investment in the Nevada Hotel. A promoter came to Ely with the great idea of building a nice hotel there and Jake, with several others, went along with the idea. But it was during the Depression, business was slow and it finally sold at a great loss to the investors, and at a price way below its cost. When Bishop Orrin Snow moved to Canada, Jake bought his big home in the center of town. It was a "mansion" in those days. The materials had been hauled from Modena, and painters from St. George, the Milne brothers,had done the most beautiful graining and painting of the interior woodwork. It was the first home in town to have running water and a bathroom; so it was the show place of the town. This was in 1910. Here three more children were born, making eleven children for the couple. Agnes worked hard to care for the family; there was always a hot meal on the table for the children when they came from school at noon. She was an excellent breadmaker and got quite upset when she would discover most of the end crusts missing after school snacks were had. She was the one who got the family going each morning; making the fires, cooking breakfast and calling the family members from their slumbers. Jake served two terms as County Commissioner, and did good work there as he had no opposition when he ran for the second term. He served as school trustee and on the Lund Irrigation Board for many years and was always interested in civic affairs. The Elementary School building was built while he was trustee at the cost of $6,000. That was a real achievement and tells the value of the dollar back in 1914. Jake was anxious that his children further their education and sent them away to school before the high school was organized in Lund. On January 29, 1946, Jake and Agnes celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary which was a happy occasion. By now Jake's health was failing; he had developed leukemia and he died the following year on August 3, 1947, at the age of 77. Agnes lived alone for many years, then sold the big home to her son Ernest. She lived with some of her children until her death on November 10, 1965, at the age of 92. ~ ~ ~ ~ His daughter, Laura Gubler Hendrix, is an honorary graduate of the Brigham Young High School Class of 1922.

Laura [and Leland] Hendrix

Class of 1922 ~ Honorary. Laura Gubler. She married Leland Hendrix on March 15, 1924 in Ely, Nevada. They were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple. They lived and farmed in Lund, Nevada, until 1958, when they moved to Utah, settling in Orem, Utah. They filled many Church callings. Together they served a short-term mission to the Southern States, and later were ordinance workers in the Provo Temple for 15 years. Together they had five children, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Leland Hendrix died on January 11, 1997. His interment, Lund Cemetery, Lund, Nevada. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ "I came to Provo and BY High in the fall of 1920. At that time, there was no high school in my home town of Lund, Nevada so my father sent us to various Utah schools. I was very proud to be a junior at this time. As I was finding my way around that first day, I met a friendly young man who asked my name, where I was from and what year l would be in school. I proudly told him I was a junior. That night he danced with me at the opening social, a one-time happening. Later, I learned the young man was Ernest L. Wilkinson; he was a college junior and editor of the school paper, years later becoming President of Brigham Young University. I realized my station as a high school junior one day when I heard the college boys, who ate their meals where I was boarding, talking about school. Archie West said, "I don't think the high school should have a Junior Prom, that should be an honor reserved for college students!" I kept quiet but had learned my lesser status as a high school junior. However, we high school students were free to enjoy all the wonderful school activities, ballgames, plays, programs, dances, even the great Junior Prom. In thinking of the Academy Building, I remember the huge stairway coming down the north side and how I ran down it each day as I came from my sewing class. One day, as I was half way down the stairs, the big 20-foot door on the west opened and in walked Leland Hendrix, from my home town. Being the only person around, I was able to show him to the office just left of the front door. Registration was simple in those days. Leland became a member of the Men's Glee Club, an elite singing group, and sat next to Richard Condie who later became director of the Tabernacle Choir. (A few years later, Leland and I were married.) One morning I was starting to run down that long stairway and found myself falling head first down a dozen or so steps. I had worn dress shoes with a little higher heel than my oxfords; one heel caught on the metal trim of the steps and I was thrown down with quite a force. I didn't stop to assess my injuries, but looked around to see if anyone had seen me fall. Luckily, there was no one in sight, so I gathered myself together, looked up and could see my shoe still hooked to the step at the top of the stairs. I went up the stairs and retrieved my shoe and made it safely back down the stairs, happy that no one had seen me fall; I soon forgot the bruises. I had such a wonderful winter that year at BY High. How I enjoyed the Friday night dances and, thanks to the half dozen college boys who ate their meals at my place of residence, Leland, and my brother Ernest, also at BY High, my dance program was always filled. What wonderful memories of BY High and Academy Square!" By Laura Gubler Hendrix (BYH Class of 1922~H), Orem [Provo Daily Herald Web Special, September 7, 2001.] ~ ~ ~ ~ She was a junior at Brigham Young High School in 1920-21. Then she attended Brigham Young College in Logan, Utah, where she graduated from high school in 1922. She also completed a year of college there in 1922-23. Next she enrolled at the University of Utah, where she started as a college sophomore. She graduated from the U of U with a two-year Associate Degree in Education. ~ ~ ~ ~ Leland Hendrix was born on August 15, 1897. He married Laura Gubler. He died on January 11, 1997. His interment, Lund Cemetery, Lund, Nevada. ~ ~ ~ ~ Laura Gubler was born on September 3, 1904. Her parents were Jacob John Gubler [Class of 1895 Commercial Graduate of the Brigham Young Academy high school] and Mary Agnes Horsley. She married Leland Hendrix. She is very much alive at 105 years old and still lives a very active life! She enjoys sending and receiving email. @September 2009 ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Laura Gubler Hendrix. 1904 ~ 2013. Laura Gubler Hendrix, 108, our loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother gratefully returned to her Heavenly Father on May 5, 2013. She lived a long event-filled life. Born on September 3, 1904, she saw everything from horse and buggy to supersonic jets. She is the fifth child of Agnes Horsley Gubler and Jacob J. Gubler. Her brothers were Ray, Ernest, Charles, Albert, and Ralph. They are all deceased except Ralph. Her sisters were Ina, Ruby, Mable, Olive, and Ivy. They are all deceased except Ivy. She married Leland Hendrix on March 15, 1924. He preceded her in death. She is survived by her daughter Ludean (Phil) Carter of Lund, Nevada, her son Leland (Eve) Hendrix of Mapleton, Utah and her daughter Claire (David) Julian of Memphis, Tennessee. She was preceded in death by her oldest daughter Vaiola, her daughter and son-in-law Elaine (Sam) Doxey, and four grandchildren. She is survived by nine grandchildren, 34 great grandchildren, and 41 great great grandchildren. Laura and Leland spent the first 50-plus years in Lund, Nevada where they raised their family. In 1958 they sold their family farm and moved to Orem, Utah where they spent more than 50 years. They enjoyed making new friends, BYU plays and sports, and being close to the temple. Laura had a tremendous thirst for knowledge. She attended grade school and up to the eight grade in Lund. She then went to St. George for a year and then back to Lund. She was a member of the junior class at Brigham Young High School in 1920-1921. Over the next few years she attended Utah State University, the University of Utah, and BYU. She then began teaching back in Lund. When she was very young, she had a desire to play the piano. No teachers were available so using books her sister Ina had left at home she began teaching herself to play. She became proficient enough that she was able to teach all of her children and several of her grandchildren to play. When she was a young mother, living on a ranch 35 miles from the nearest town, she ordered a violin out of a catalog and taught herself to play that. She taught some of her children to play, and they in turn have taught their children and grandchildren. Because of Laura, many of her posterity are very competent musicians. In her later years when she was a worker in the Provo, Utah Temple she became aware of a need for more people who could help with the Spanish speaking patrons. Laura started studying Spanish on her own, and became proficient enough to help in the temple. Laura was actively involved in the LDS church throughout her life. She served in all of the Church organizations and was a ward president in the MIA for 6 years. She and her husband Leland served a mission in South Carolina from 1960-1961. She became involved in Genealogy and Family History and compiled a large book of her father's family history titled, "Two Gubler Families in America 1847-1972." She also spent several years as a worker in the Provo Temple. A funeral honoring Laura's life will be held in the Lund, Nevada LDS Chapel at 2 pm on Friday, May 10th. A visitation will be held one hour prior to the service. Instead of flowers, the family suggests a donation to the LDS Church's Perpetual Education Fund. [Provo Daily Herald, May 8, 2013]

Boston University, Ph.D. Harvard University. ~ ~ ~ ~ Currently Associate Professor of International Relations at Al Akhawayn University in Morocco. Married to a charming Moroccan woman and having an interesting and rewarding life. @2012 ~ ~ ~ ~ JULY 14, 2005, NEW YORK: NEW YORK -- The American Civil Liberties Union today announced that Dr. Jeremy Gunn has joined its national staff as Director of the ACLU's new Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief. Dr. Gunn comes to the ACLU from Emory Law School in Atlanta where for the past five years he was a Senior Fellow for Religion and Human Rights and a Senior Associate at the Washington-based Institute for Global Engagement. He is a member of the Panel of Experts on Freedom of Religion and Belief of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, working on behalf of evangelical Christians and other religious minorities. Before his work in Atlanta, Dr. Gunn was Director of Research at the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. He has also served as a Senior Advisor for the U.S. Ambassador for International Religious Freedom at the Department of State and as a Senior Fellow at the U.S. Institute for Peace. Dr. Gunn spent four years at the JFK Assassination Records Review Board as General Counsel and Executive Director. "Religious freedom is an essential element of our democracy -- indeed it is the very reason America is the most religiously diverse nation in the world," said Dr. Gunn. "The two critical components of religion are the free exercise and the establishment clauses in the First Amendment of the Constitution and neither should be overlooked. The ACLU has been at the forefront in defending our religious freedom, and I look forward to engaging in the ongoing debate about the need for government neutrality in matters of religious opinion." Dr. Gunn received his Ph.D. in Religion and Society from Harvard University in 1991, and he holds a J.D. from Boston University, where he graduated magna cum laude in 1987. He earned his M.A. in Humanities at the University of Chicago and his B.A. in International Relations and Humanities at Brigham Young University, where he received high honors with distinction. ~ ~ ~ ~ See also Institute for Global Engagement ~ ~ ~ ~ Dr. T.

Dick and Jeanine Gunn

Faculty & Staff, beginning in the 1948-49 school year, and continuing through 1953-54 - Art Teacher, Publications, & Religion. Richard L. "Dick" Gunn. BYU BS Art 1947, BYU MS Art 1950, Stanford University PHD 1955. Then became a professor in the Art Department at BYU. Now: Richard L. Gunn, Professor Emeritus of Art History at BYU. ~ ~ ~ ~ BOOK: A SEARCH FOR SENSITIVITY AND SPIRIT by Richard L. Gunn, Deseret Book, 1981, 1st Edition. From the Foreword by Jeffrey R. Holland, then President of Brigham Young University who writes that this book "is an adventure into the spirit of things - especially into the human spirit - as we wake and walk and talk and live. It deals, among other things, with children and with nature and with art. It reveals to us the great impact that creativity and sensitivity and wonder can have on our religious life." NOMINATION: I had some wonderful professors during my stint at BYU, but my most influential and favorite, would have to be Richard Gunn, professor of art history. I wasn't even interested in art history when I signed on with Professor Gunn, but needed a fine arts class, and art history 101 fit my schedule. Once the class started, it didn't take long before we were all smitten with Prof. Gunn's love of art, love of his students, and general zest for life. His efforts to imbue in his students a love of great art worked their magic on me and have enriched my life to this day. I remember a particular day in the late 70s when our class found out that Prof. Gunn had been diagnosed with cancer in his leg and was absent from the class for a short time in order to undergo surgery. We were all surprised that he was only absent a couple of days. As I sat and listened to his lecture on the day of his return, I noticed that his wife was sitting in the front of the classroom. Prof. Gunn, never one to sit still during a class, sat on a stool at the front of the class with his crutches at his side. At one point, he neglected to grab his crutches when he got up and his wife, camera in hand, jumped up and took his picture as he stood before the class on his injured leg. We later found out that she was going to use the picture as evidence that he was disobeying doctor's orders! There was no keeping this man from doing what he loved most--sharing his love of art. --Laurie Holmes Smith, 76, Safford, Ariz. ~ ~ In 1999 Dick Gunn, at age 81, took a trip to South Africa. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT: Richard LeRoy Gunn, 94, passed away on Thursday March 28, 2013 in Provo, Utah.A Visitation will be held Thursday, April 4, 2013 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Oak Hills Hillside Chapel, 1960 North 1500 East, Provo, UT.
