Alice Southam is the daughter of Catherine Cameron and George Southam Sr.. Alice Southam, tells of her first meeting with Joshua Haslam: "It was at the time I was working for Mr. Gibson who lived at Old Ashley town, when I first met Josh at a dance in Maeser. But once before that he was riding with a friend on a horse when they saw me and a girlfriend walking down the street, and he remarked, "See that girl with the dark hair and the brown eyes, she is going to be my wife one of these days." Then in the spring after that I was living with Mrs. Hadlock who lived in Vernal, downtown, and I was there until June. Joshua and I were well-acquainted by this time and we decided to go with them and get married in the Logan Temple. Alice married Joshua Haslem July 27, 1887 in Logan, Utah.

In American Fork the home was in Second Ward for a few years. While living there a daughter, Katie, was born. Then the Haslam family moved to a larger farm in Third Ward. At this time the oldest son John had married. While living there Mother was a Relief Society teacher. The family all had typhoid fever, and as the mother was sick, Mrs. Wagstaff took care of the youngest baby, Von. Grandmother Southam came and helped nurse the family, then later on Joshua traded for a home and farm in First Ward. There was a lovely fruit orchard as well as farm land. They also rented land down by Utah Lake and raised sugar beets. At this time there were eleven living children. Three of the oldest had married. In 1916 Joshua traded his farm on American Fork First Ward to John Bennett in Uintah County for 160 acres of land. Again the family moved to this little country farm in Bennett, Uintah County. Here they raised cattle and farmed.

A year or so after moving to Bennett, World War I started. It was during this time that the terrible epidemic of influenza broke out among the people every where. There were may lives lost. Our oldest son John and his family were all ill with this flu as they called it. Flossie, John's wife, died leaving him with five small children. One was a baby ten months old. John was living in Salt Lake City at the time. At that time Mother had gone in to help nurse. Also, Ruth was in Salt Lake going to Business College. She had the flu also, and when she heard about Flossie's death she got out of bed and came to Johnnie's to help care for the children. As soon as they were able and things could be arranged, John and family moved to Bennett, leaving the baby, Glen with his Grandmother, Mrs. Wagstaff, Flossie's mother. She loved him so much that she could not let him leave. He lived with her until he was married.

John and four children: Kenneth, Niles, Helen, and Dean moved in with the Joshua Haslam family at Bennett. The children were loved and cared for as much as our own family. John bought him a large truck and hauled freight from Bennett to Price, Utah for some time. In 1921 he married Rebecca Alice Hartle, a nurse, and taking his four children, they moved to a house and farm two miles south.
The Haslam family lived in Bennett for nine years, and then after the older children had married, they moved to a small home in Vernal.
