Source: 1933 BYU Banyan yearbook. ~ ~ ~ ~ HIS SISTER: Ina Webb Richardson, daughter of Tyresha Kirkham and George Jesse Webb. She was the sole daughter, with three older and younger brothers. Ina was born in Lehi December 2, 1908 and was laid to her rest there April 22, 1991. Her husband Arthur Merle Richardson followed her on January 13, 1992. Ina received her higher education at BYU, USU, George Washington University, and the McCune School of Music and Art in Salt Lake City. From BYU she received B.A. and M.A. degrees. from 1931 to 1946 she taught school in Provo and Salt Lake schools and served students in other ways through her involvement with KSL broadcast programs and panels and organizations devoted to enriching the lives of children through music and the arts. Her efforts here reflect what I hope all Kirkhams claim as our family traits: sharing what blessings we have been granted in talent, skill, time and beliefs. Ina, like her cousin Joseph was active in the LDS Church through ward and stake music activities as well teaching in Primary, Sunday School and YWMIA. Can it surprise anyone that she taught genealogy classes as well! Ina served her sisters in the Relief Society, co-edited the ward newsletter, served a stake mission and as a Temple Square guide. Ina and Merle did not have children of their own; it is evident that there was love enough for them to share freely with the children they served. At her death Ina was survived by her brother and sister-in-law Fred and Marie Call Webb and their daughter Alyson [actually Alisyn]. ~ ~ ~ ~ Round and Round They Grow: Our garden-in-the-round developed out of my dream for a garden, our limited water supply, and some creative brainstorming about the inconveniences of our backyard. My dream had been growing for quite a while, along with the tiny tomato plants that I’d started in January. The water supply problems we faced were the possibility of drought and the limited water pressure from our one hose. The size of the plot also depressed me: how could I keep it weeded and watered? Grinning, my husband suggested a garden on a merry-go-round; what I needed was to be able to sit in the shade and let the crops come around to me to be watered, weeded, and harvested, he said. But we took that idea one step further: what about terraces that could all be watered by one circulating sprinkler head on a water pipe? I was ecstatic. My husband Fred developed a “we” attitude about the project as we spaded the ground within a fifty-foot circle and piled in about eighteen wheelbarrow loads of well-fertilized top soil. We kept the soil in place with thirty-two steppingstones, 18 by 12 by 2 inches, set on edge around the circle and reinforced with baling wire. The second tier of our circle garden is rimmed with aluminum edgings ten inches high; the third tier is smaller and higher still. We built the whole circle around a rigid, six-foot-high, plastic water pipe with a sprinkler head on it. Stepping stones in convenient places make moving from tier to tier easy. In all, we had nearly 150 square feet of planting space, watered with a turn of the tap. Our tomatoes and potatoes, started ahead of time, were only part of the project. We planted some perennials: rhubarb, four kinds of mint, and Swiss perpetual green onions. And our chives, curly parsley, Armenian cucumbers, two gorgeously purple eggplants, green peppers, and zucchini flourished within a colorful border of nasturtiums and marigolds, planted to help control insects. We’re convinced of our carousel garden’s practicality in growing a small garden with only limited water facilities, but I have to confess that the real delight of this project has been in doing it together. ~ ~ Marie Call Webb, Provo, Utah, "Random Sampler", Ensign, Apr. 1980

Frank Webster

Class of 1877? Francis Webster Jr. ~ ~ ~ ~ Parson U. Webster wrote this outline of the life of Francis Webster Jr.: Francis Webster Jr. was born April 7, 1858 in Cedar City. He was the first son and the second child born to Francis and Elizabeth Parsons Webster. He was reared in a large family. His father’s diary records that at the age of five, “November 18.63 a heavy load of Wood ran over my son Francis Body without injuring him.” Little more is known of young Frank’s childhood. He grew as a normal healthy boy learning at an early age how to work. He experienced many privations common to dwellers on the frontiers. At the same time there was being woven into the warp and woof of his character the influences and qualities of his surroundings strength and sturdiness. His father was a farmer and raiser of livestock, and being the first son, many responsibilities were put upon his young shoulders. He attended the schools of Cedar, and was also given much help on the side by his mother who was an exceptionally well trained woman for those days. While a young man he attended the Brigham Young Academy. Returning home he was called to serve a mission in Great Britain. Later he was called to fill a second mission in the Southern States. While he was on his second mission, his mother died. Upon his return home, I was sent to Lund with a Team and a white topped buggy to bring him home. When we got near his home he commenced crying, because of the loss of his mother. Later when John U. Webster, Uncle Frank and I were fencing on the mountain at Miners Peak, he said one day while were working and talking “No better woman ever lived than my mother”.... Francis Webster Jr. had a very strong testimony of the Restored Gospel and was very sincere and honest in the payment of his Tithes and offerings. He was very active in building up the Kingdom of God upon the earth. Prior to his death he deeded the better part of his land holdings to the Church and said to the members of his family that he was going to deed all he had to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He always rode his horse to town to Sacrament Meeting from down on the meadow north of Cedar City, about 8 miles, and was sincere about bearing his testimony and doing all he could for the church. Besides these experiences he was a farmer and livestock man of high standing. He had a fine herd of cattle, and some of the best horses in this part of the country, and cared well for them. He was sent to pick stallions to bring into this part of the country, for breeding purposes. At one time he was interested in the sheep with his brothers and he drove the first wagon and started the road west, from the Webster’s flowing well at the Butte on the west desert to the upper Nole, one of the three Webster Noles across the desert, and thence on to Wooley Springs. These two places were then the headquarters of the Webster sheep business. No one could drive a straighter line or pick a better road than he did, for the distance of about 25 miles. Francis Webster Jr. attempted to establish dry farming in the Cedar Valley west of town, at one time. Francis Webster Jr. was industrious, was honest, was a man of few words but good deeds. He was kind, prayerful, and had a high moral standard of living. He was a faithful ward teacher. He was active in helping to establish the San Juan Mission, had the experiences of the Hole-in-the-Rock crossing of the Colorado River. Francis Webster Jr. always said, “It’s never too late to make a wrong right.” Francis died July 20, 1928 and was buried in the Cedar City cemetery by the side of his father and mother. John U. Webster told why Francis Webster, Jr. never married. My experiences with uncles, aunts, cousins etc. were those of seeing them at school, church, parties and community gatherings in the common ways of association talking, playing, singing, etc., also working together farming and handling livestock. As a small boy I often wondered why Uncle Frank Webster never married, so I asked father [John James Godson Webster] one day and he told me the story of a courtship of uncle Frank and a very lovely young lady, a Miss Nielson of a good Latter Day Saint family. Her father and family were chosen to go to San Juan to settle and help build up a community. Uncle Frank didn’t want to leave Cedar City and go to San Juan. Bro. Nielson made the statement that, a young man who would not accept an invitation to go with his family to San Juan was not worthy of his daughter. Uncle Frank became so offended, that he never wanted to see any of the Nielson family again, not even his sweetheart. She made a visit back to Cedar to try to make up with Uncle Frank. Uncle Frank was hauling freight from Milford Utah to Pioche a mining town in Nevada. Father made a trip to Uncle Frank to take his place, so Uncle Frank could come back and make up with his sweetheart but Uncle Frank refused to come. This story made a terrific effect on me and right then and there I decided that I would never let anything like that ever stop me from choosing a mate and having a family. ~ ~ Parson U. Webster
