Chloe Jane Morrell was born in Fremont, Utah on March 15, 1877, the first white girl and second white child born in Wayne County when the Mormon settlers were beginning to settle Rabbit Valley, an area populated by Indians. Her parents Luzernia Allred and Silas Wilson Morrell owned a farm just east of Fremont where they built a two-story, log house. They also had a dairy farm east of Fish Lake, later known as Silas Springs.
Chloe was a true cowgirl. She rode horses, could throw a lariat and shoot a gun. She did all the farm chores, since her father was unable to do much work after he broke his back while working at his sawmill some years before.
Her father Silas also suffered with rheumatism, and in March 1891, he and Luzernia decided to go to a warmer climate, hoping his health would improve. They loaded three wagons with their belongings and started on the long journey to the southern part of the Utah.
Chloe drove the cattle and was in the saddle every day but five for the next six months. It was tiring, because in those days, ladies rode sidesaddle with one leg straight, resting in the stirrup, and the other leg with bended-knee perched on top of the saddle because it was improper for a girl to ride astride a horse. Chloe did not have a sidesaddle, so she had to ride a man's saddle, making the task even more difficult. Although they stayed in New Mexico for some time, Silas's health never improved, so they decided to return home.
They sold some of the cattle on the return trip and finally purchased a sidesaddle for Chloe, which made traveling much faster and easier.
Chloe worked at Fishlake when in 1894 Jeremiah Jackson and one of his friends went there on horseback and stopped at the place where she worked. Chloe was a very shy girl, but nevertheless, a romance ensued, and they were married on January 18, 1899.
She died on October 16, 1956, on the 16th anniversary of her beloved husband's death.
