In 1913, Ellen Conder traveled with her family by covered wagon from Mancos, CO to the Verde Valley in Arizona. Ellen was seven. She walked alongside the wagon the entire trip. The journey took a long time. In route, Robert Conder stopped near Bluewater Lake in New Mexico and worked as a lumber jack in the timber for a few months..
Robert Conder homesteaded 120 acres in Camp Verde, Arizona..
My dad said his mom taught him the days of the month with "Little Nell went out the play..." She said she learned it that way and it was the only way she could recite the month's names when she was a child. My dad taught me the months the same way..
When they lived in National City, CA, a boy came over to see if Archie could come out to play. Ellen told the boy that Archie had the chicken pox and couldn't come out. The boy asked if after Archie finished eating his chicken pox could he come out. Ellen thought this was a funny tale..
Dad said family was the most important thing to his mom. She always tried to think of things to do or buy to please her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed having them around her. Dad said when he was little he got a Buck Jones gun set for Christmas, and he loved it..
Dad said when they lived in Cottonwood, his mom was tenderizing some meat with a meat clever when she chopped off her left ring finger just below the knuckle. Written by Jacqueline.
