Marion Henrie

      MARION HENRIE, 3rd child of James & Gedske (Schow) Henrie, was b. 12 July 1884, Panguitch, Utah [bapt. 12 July 1892, end. 16 Feb. 1905]; m. 15 Dec. 1904 in Fredonia, Coconino Co., Arizona, to Artemisia Cutler, dau. of Morton Brigham & Artemisia (Foote) Cutler. She was b. 13 Aug. 1886, Glendale, Kane Co., Utah [bapt. 1 May 1895, end. & H. 16 Feb. 1905 in St. George Temple].

      Marion was member 25 in a polygamist family of 30, the third son of the third wife. He had a “cold” reception as it is reported that all the crops in Panguitch Valley froze to the ground the morning he was borne. He lived in Panguitch until 1889, when his parents moved to Fredonia, Arizona, to hide from the U.S. deputy marshals who wanted to take his father into court for living in polygamy. He had been fined once and the marshals wanted to get him again, to give him a prison term.

      His school days were spent in Fredonia, where he lived until he was 21, with the exception of five summers when he was running his mother’s farm in Panguitch, batching and cooking for himself. He took the farm over at the age of 15, and freighted and worked with the sheep in the winters when he was not in school. Ha would have graduated with the first graduates from the 8th grade in Fredonia, but he had to leave for Panguitch to put in the spring crops 15 days before the graduation exercises.

      After their marriage, Marion and Artemisia lived in Fredonia, Ariz., and Panguitch, Cannonville, and Delta, Utah. Wherever they have lived they have made many dear friends and taken an active part in church and civic affairs.

      In the fall of 1907, Marion was called on a mission to the Central States, where ha labored under President Samuel O. Bennion. At the age of 22 he was ordained a High Priest and labored in the Panguitch Stake High Council several years. He later filled two short-term stake missions. He has been president of the Y.M.M.I.A., Chairman of Church Building Committee for both ward and stake, Teacher of the Gospel Doctrine Class for 5 years, also a Teacher of the High Priests Quorum. In civic affairs, he was president of Cannonville Irrigation Co., also president of the Livestock Assn. there. In Delta he worked for the State Road Commission and brought the first heavy road equipment into Millard Co. In the fall of 1933 he was elected County Commissioner and he worked hard to get the homes and lands back into possession of the people who lost on account of over-drainage, delinquent taxes, and the depression of the 1930's.

      The parents of Artemisia likewise moved to Fredonia, Ariz., when she was a child, to evade the U.S. marshals who were tracking down polygamist families. There was a very fine school in Fredonia and a good ward where they received proper instruction. Her favorite activity was acting in the school and Y.L.M.I.A. plays. Since the community was isolated, the residents were forced to make their own entertainment. Ward dances, picnics, candypulls, oyster suppers, wagon and sleigh rides, skating, ball games, etc., were part of the entertainment, and now form pleasant memories of childhood and school days. After her marriage she was chosen president of Relief Society and worked in the Red Cross during the war years. [p. 279]
