Margie Duzett Terry was born December 5th, 1857 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the daughter of Mary Aeline Ewing and Edward P. Duzett, who was a body guard for the Prophet Joseph Smith.
When she was five years old her parents were called to settle the Dixie country. They immediately answered the call and settled at Grafton, but during the Indian War they moved into Rockville for safety and made their home there permanently.
Margie Duzett married Nathan Harris Terry, January 1st 1874 and moved to Starling; San Pete county and later to Mesa, Ariz., where following ten years of hard pioneers life after a short visit to her old home in Rockville she and her husband went to Mexico where again they went thru terrible privations and want, first in one Mormon colony and then another, finally settling in Dublin where she lost two children and finally her husband who died in 1903.
During the revolution she left Mexico, leaving home and everything she had behind her and went to San Bernardino, Calif., Where she had to begin anew the struggle for a livelihood. Here her son, Edward, obtained work in a printing office and was doing very well when he fell a victim to the "flu" in the terrible epidemic of 1918, he being 22 years of age.
Mrs. Terry was then left alone and the rheumatism which had been bothering her for several years gradually grew worse until she was unable to walk. She made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Mary Hurst who has given her mother every care and attention possible. Margie Terry's life has been one of sacrifice and privation and during all the years she was suffering from Rheumatism she was always exceptionally patient and cheerful. She was the mother of ten children, six of whom survive her. They are: Mrs. Mary Hurst, Blanding, Utah; Sella Nelson, Sanford, Ariz.; Mrs. Eleanor Empey, San Francisco, Calif.; Mrs. Mary Martin, and Mrs. Mable Harmon of Riverside, Calif., and Mrs. Rose cordon of Hinckley, Utah, who has been with her mother for the last two months. She also has twenty-nine grandchildren and fifty-three great grandchildren.
