In memory of Robert Easton
Robert Easton was born the 27th of July, 1821 in Dykehead Oldmonkland, Scotland. He was the 3rd child of 10 children born to Robert and Elizabeth Laird Easton.
It would have been nice if Robert Easton had left some written record of his own life. But, because he didn't, it is my purpose to piece together as much as I can from the few facts that we do have.
Few of us are renowned enough to have our name on a monument. But, Robert Easton has his on a monument in Greenville, Beaver County, Utah.
On the 22nd of October 1842, Robert married his first wife, Margaret Lindsay. To this marriage was born a daughter, Jennette, on the 7th of December 1842. From his obituary, we learn of two other children that he and Margaret Lindsey had. But, who are they? John Miller mentions that Robert only had Jennette when they started across the plains to Utah.
We hear no more about Margaret. Could it be that she died in child birth?
We find that Robert was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the 24th of March 1842. Other members of Robert's family accepted the Gospel: John and his twin sisters, Margaret and Jane. They also immigrated to Utah.
Robert immigrated to the United States evidently sometime in 1849 ending up in the St. Louis, Missouri area. His future wife, Mary, and her family were there. The men were working in the coal mines just outside of St. Louis. Robert might have been working there also.
Sometime in 1850, he married Mary Miller. Mary was the oldest child of the Miller family. Her parents had died just a few months befor of cholera leaving Mary and her older siblings as guardians of the younger siblings.
Robert's obituary gives a good overview and a few more facts of his life.
Robert Easton Obituary
Robert Easton died in Greenville, Beaver County, Utah on May 25, 1887, after a protracted attack of asthma. He suffered greatly the last six weeks of his life. He was a native of Scotland and was born on the 27th of July, 1822. He embraced the Gospel in his youth. In the year of 1850, he arrived in Salt Lake City and the following year went with others to build up the Southern settlements. He settled in Cedar City where he labored hard with others to establish the Iron Works. During this time he met with a serious accident, breaking his back, from which he lay helpless for many months, suffering greatly. He moved from Cedar City to what was then called lower Beaver, having taken up some land four miles west of Beaver. He and others located there and founded the town of Greenville. In 1872, he was chosen and set apart by the Stake Presidency, as the Bishop of the Greenville Ward, which position he held for many years. In 1873 he performed a mission to his native land but on account of ill health, was obliged to return home the following year. In 1886, Brother Easton was arrested under the Edmund's law. He pleaded not guilty and stood trial. Strange to say the jury acquitted him. He was a staunch defender of the principles of the Gospel. Full of integrity and faith. He leaves two wives and 7 children, 3 sons and 4 daughters, to mourn his loss, with many grandchildren, friends and acquaintances.
He had 3 children by his first wife.
1 child by his second wife
9 children by his third wife
13 children all together
At the present time no one knows the burial site of Robert Easton

Henry C. Powers is a splendid example of the self-made man. Coming to Idaho with limited capital, he secured a homestead claim and is today the owner of two thousand acres of valuable land at Sublett, Cassia county. His attention is given to general farming and cattle raising and his business affairs have been so wisely, carefully and creditably conducted that he is now numbered among the men of affluence of his district. The story of his life is the story of earnest endeavor crowned with success.

He was born in Lenawee county, Michigan, December 8, 1844, a son of Isaac and Alvira (Sherwood) Powers. He was but twelve years of age when his parents removed with their family from Michigan to Delaware county, Iowa, where the father conducted a farm. Later a removal was made to the town of Troy in Doniphan county, Kansas, and some time afterward the family home was established in Covington, Nebraska. The next removal took them to Ponca, Nebraska, where the father passed away in 1913 (1898 according to headstone). He was a republican in his political views. Throughout his life he followed agricultural interests, owning farms in the localities in which he resided. His widow survives and is now living with her son Isaac at Norfolk, Nebraska.

Henry C. Powers left Troy. Kansas, in 1859, when a youth of fifteen years. He drove cattle from Atchison, Kansas, to Salt Lake City, Utah, and with five others organized a company, purchasing a four mule team outfit. When this was secured they drove across the country to Carson City, Nevada, where Mr. Powers remained, while the others went on to California. He then operated pack trains in Nevada, also engaged in prospecting and ranching, and in connection with a partner, John Little, he hauled the first lumber to Virginia City, Nevada. He remained a resident of that state for eleven years and while in Carson City was married. He then returned to the old home at Covington, Nebraska, where for three years he was engaged in the livery business. He next drove across the plains to Salt Lake in 1873. Accompanied by his wife, and from Salt Lake he freighted out to various points for a period of two years. He next went to Corinne, Utah, and was engaged in freighting to Montana before a railroad was built. While thus engaged he passed through several Indian scares and went through all the hardships, privations and difficulties of frontier life, for he was identified with freighting to Montana for three years. The year 1878 witnessed his arrival in Idaho, at which time he took up his abode at Sublett, Cassia county, where he secured one hundred and sixty acres of his present property from the government. Upon this he built a log cabin and began life in Cassia county in true pioneer style. He has since built three houses upon his place and now has a fine frame dwelling, large, commodious and attractively furnished. He first concentrated his efforts and attention upon sheep raising and later he took up the business of raising cattle, in which he is still engaged. As the years have passed he has added to his holdings until he now has two thousand acres of land and is engaged in general farming. He also has a general merchandise store upon his place and thus his business interests are of a broad and varied character, contributing to the upbuilding of the community as well as to the advancement of his individual fortune. He has been a director of the First National Bank of Burley since its organization.

In 1868 Mr. Powers was married to Miss Isabel Gray, a daughter of John and Elizabeth (Wardrobe) Gray and a native of St. Louis, Missouri. Her parents came from Scotland in early life, crossing the Atlantic in one of the old-time sailing vessels. They took up their abode in St. Louis, Missouri, and later journeyed westward to Salt Lake, being among its earliest inhabitants. At a subsequent period they went to Nevada and it was there that Mr. and Mrs. Powers were married. The father died at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Powers and the mother passed away in Lewiston, Idaho.

Mr. and Mrs. Powers have become the parents of ten children: Charles, living at Sublett; William, who died upon the ranch; Isaac, at home; Maud; Ida; Margaret; Isabel; Harrison; John; and Andrew, who has departed this life.

Mr. Powers has filled the office of county commissioner. He is a member of the Christian church and his life has been guided by high and honorable principles, making him a man of sterling worth among his fellowmen, enjoying in unqualified manner their confidence and well deserved respect.

Her luscious blonde hair dashing in the air, Miss Emery said, "Gee, it's wonderful!" her 122 pounds filled a blue Miss America swimming suit perfectly and she wore a great big smile. Only a few days ago, Miss Emery was graduated from Salinas junior college. She was a student leader there, secretary of the student body, high in scholastic standing, and exceedingly popular. She was queen of the "Sadie Hawkins" day at Salinas jaysee this year and had been a candidate in the Sweetheart of the Salinas rodeo contest-Miss Emery is five feet, six and one-half inches tall.
