Gwendolyn Kathryn Hirschi Bauman, born Oct 26, 1911 in Geneva, Bear Lake, Idaho. When Gwendolyn was five years old her mother would move to Montpelier for the winter months so that she could enrolled her and Carl in school, which her mother did for several years.
Gwendolyn and Carl both started school in the Old Red Brick Washington School. It stood where the Wells Stock Park now is. In the summer all of them would move back to Geneva where they finally made there home. But, while living in Montpelier they lived in a two room log cabin. The bed room had straw placed on the floor with a rag woven carpet over the straw which made the floor much warmer.
Gwendolyn, while a young child and young woman would always be driven by a team of horses hitched to a buggy to school in the fall and in the winter we would ride in a sled. School was let out the first of April before the snow was completely gone.
Gwendolyn met Woodruff at a dance and they went together for about two months and then were engaged for about two and a half years, later they got married, December 4, 1931.
They bought eighty head of sheep in the winter and that spring they ran out of hay and so they drove the sheep up to Giraff Creek and feed the sheep the dry grass that was available on the south slopes of the mountains. And then Gwendolyn and Woodruff lived in a tent and cooked on a open fire. It was very cold and windy that spring and they never got warm.
Gwendolyn lived in the log cabin on their homestead for three or four years and herded their little band of sheep. In the winter months Gwendolyn would move to the little home at the mouth of Salt Canyon, there they stayed for about six years when they bought a ranch in the middle of the Geneva, Thomas Fork valley. Here they raised three children.
