The winter of 1936-37 was the hardest winter in St. George’s history, 13 degrees below zero one night, froze our water pipes. Rosena Blake gave us buttermilk and canned fruit. Helen Palmer gave us canned fruit. We sent to Loma Linda for fruit crackers, large boxes of them and other Loma Linda foods, soy butter etc. I never met so many kind generous people before in my life as I met in St. George. I went to the temple when I was well. Elaine encouraged me to go. We went on Saturdays and she did baptisms. One day she did 106 all at one time. Harold S. Snow, her history teacher, confirmed her. He later became President of Temple after George Whitehead. Martin Mc Allister was recorder. I told him about Julius Billeter and he sent for his Lensi and Herzog records from Switzerland. I met Rosena Blake at the temple, visited her often and saw her Swiss records. One day I told her my dream. She said she had a granary on back of her house, had it made into a room and rented it. I went back to see it and it was the place I saw in my dream. I wondered why I saw it. I asked her to let me make pedigree charts from her Swiss records. I soon found out why I saw her room in the dream. She had a Sidler and Hegetschweiler line from Ottenbach on her father's side and I found her father and my mother were cousins, which makes her the only relative of mother's we have ever known on earth. Three nephews went on missions to Switzerland, found father's relatives, but not mother's. (Emma Scholl History)
