Myrtle Irene Burr
When Myrtle was two years old, her parents moved the family to Monticello, Utah where they lived for about two years, and then moved back to Burrville. Myrtle started school in Burrville. By 1905, when she was eight years old, the family was living in Torrey, Utah, but Myrtle's father liked to move around, so they soon moved to Emery, Utah. After moving to Teasdale, Utah, Myrtle met Willard Alma Brinkerhoff, her future husband.
In 1914, Myrtle and Willard were married in the Mormon Temple in Manti, Utah after which they settled on a ranch in Bicknell Bottoms, Utah. They spent the winters in a home in Bicknell.
After their first child, Mildred, was born, Myrtle's husband was called into the service during World War I. He was notified one day and had to leave the next day. While he was away, Myrtle moved to Teasdale and worked as a clerk in a store that was owned by Willard's parents. She lived in the back of the store. Their second child, Una, was born a month after Willard left for the service.
When Una was six weeks old, Myrtle took the two girls and went with Willard's mother and brother to California, where Willard was stationed. They stayed a few weeks and then returned. Three months later, they went again and stayed until Willard went over seas.
When Willard returned home from the war, they moved back to the ranch in Bicknell Bottoms (or Thurber). They lived there until 1933 when they moved into Bicknell. Also in 1933 their oldest son, Rollo, died of heart disease.
