    • Martha Vilate Deland Harris
      Contributed By leslie jean moore ˇ 26 January 2014
      I was born in Hunter, Utah, a farming community just a few miles from Salt Lake City, Utah. Our home was next door to the Hunter Ward Chapel where I was blessed the 2 February 1902 by Lorenzo Day.
      My parents moved to Magna, Utah about 1906.
      I started school at the Hawthorne School in Pleasant Green, Utah. I attended this school until the sixth grad. While at Hawthorne School I met Spencer W. Cornwall. He was a member of the Salt Lake County School Board, he would visit our school about once a month and taught us the correct way to sing. (I wonder if he dreamed then he would one day be leading the Great Tabernacle Choir.)
      I attended the Webster my seventh grade year and then back to Hawthorne where I graduated from the eighth grade.
      A Branch was formed in Magna from the Pleasant Green Ward the latter part of 1911. In 1912 I was called as organist. While serving as organist I had my first faith promoting experience. (This is written my life story.)
      During the years 1914 and 1917 I worked in thehome of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hammond, he was Supt. of the Bingham and Garfield Railroad.
      The years 1916 and 1917 I was clerking in JC Penny Co.
      I met Roy Elmore Harris in August 1917. We were married in October 1917. Roy was not a member of the church then, he was baptized the 2 July 1918. Roy left San Diego, California for New York to sail to France in World War I August 1918. I moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. I got a job and worked until Roy returned from France in 1919.
      We moved to Magna, Utah for a short time then returned to Salt Lake City, Utah.
      April 11, 1920 our first child was born, he was blessed and given the name Roy Elmore Harris Jr.
      January 12, 1921 we were married in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity by President Joseph Fielding Smith. Roy was sealed to us that same day. We were living in the Eighth Ward Liberty Stake. I was a teacher in the Religion Class.
      We had our Patriarchal Blessings while in this ward. We received them from Patriarch John M. Whitaker of Sugar House. He was a very dear friend.
      May 31, 1921 our second child was born, a daughter. She was blessed and given the name of Gladys Mae Harris. Gladys was about three months old when we moved to Ogden, Utah.
      We moved back to Magna, Utah Jan 28, 1922. Our third child, another son was born June 28, 1922 he was blessed and given the name of Joseph Greenleaf Harris. With three small babies I was not active while living in the Pleasant Green Ward. Roy tried to do enough for the two of us.
      Our fourth child another son was born January 15, 1924. He was blessed and given the name of his step-grandfather, Richard Thomas.
      We opened a small café we called it the Hurry Back.
      Another son was born in our home July 3, 1925 he was blessed and given the name of Russell Eugene , Russell for our family Doctor and Eugene for my brother Lloyd Eugene. Many faith promoting events occurred between this years and they are recorded in my life story. We sold our café in 1926 and moved back to Salt Lake City, Utah. We didn't live there very long. We moved back to Magna.
      We were blessed with a sixth child, another daughter, October 10, 1926. She was blessed and given the name of Ruby Vilate Harris. Ruby for my mother and Vilate for me.
      Roy became ill as a result of gas during World War I. This old trouble was coming back due to the dust at the mill where he worked. Our family Doctor said we would have to move to Arizona. We arrived in Mesa just before the dedication of the Temple. We lived in Third Ward for two years.
      In August of 1929 we moved to Fourth Ward called the old Alma Ward. In December 1929 another daughter was born into our family. She was blessed and given the name of Anna Rose Harris. She was named after my husband's mother, Anna Rose Harris Harrell.
      In June of 1930 I was called as a primary teacher. Hazel Millett was President of the Primary. Later I served as First Counselor. in 1932 I was called to teach Junior group later Gleaners in YLMIA. In 1935 I was called as a counselor in the Presidency of the YLMIA. In 1937 I was called as president of this organization. I had just gotten the Mutual fully organized when I was released and called as Relief Society President.
      In between all these changes another son was born in our home., He was blessed and named for his Grandfather Treece, William Robert Harris. I was released in 1938 fro Relief Society and again taught Gleaners.
      The year 19040 our ninth child was born, another daughter. She was blessed and given the name of Patricia Joan Harris.
      December 1940 our oldest daughter married Bert Isaac Bray.

      July 1944 our third grandchild was born, when he was twelve hours old the doctor said if we wanted him to have a name we had better call our Bishop. The doctor didn't expect the baby to live more than fifteen minutes. Bishop Davis came and administered to the baby, he was known as the miracle baby. (full details of this wonderful experience will be told in my life story)

      1957 Monsanto Chemicals Co. agrees to help us promote Books of Remembrances, by selling plastic sheets for cost. Results, we sold 50,000 the next year to cover sheets with pictures, documents and other valuable information.

His wife, Elene, Jerry D;Addabbo, Eve King and myself were to get together everything we could to make this a success.
