When Lizzie was four years old, her parents moved to Old Granite at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Her father hauled ore from Alta, a mining camp in the top of the Wasatch Mountains, to the smelter at the mouth of the canyon. By leaving at six in the morning, they would arrive home at eight or ten at night with good luck in the summer time. In the winter over the snowy roads, it would be much later.

"At the age of eight years, we moved to Granite. My father started farming, specializing in fruit raising. I was the oldest of the family, so was chore boy and my father's right hand man. My mother died when I was ten years old and my father married Ella Despain. When I was 19 years old, I married Oscar Newell Despain, Ella's brother, and we commenced building our home at Granite. As we had eleven children, most of my time was well spent between caring for them and doing the work of a farmer's wife."
