John at this time was about four years old. This left John's mother Susannah without any one of her own to look after her. A little girl was born some months after - Susan. There was a boy born before John his name was Alma he was drowned when about three years of age. Ira Hinkley one of Grandma Boyces nephews a boy about 17 yrs old, hearing of his aunts condition came back from Winter Quarters and drove their team to W. Q. This kindness she fully appreciated.
