My Papa - by R. Bernell McAllister
My Papa was tall and straight,
He fed us kids by hauling freight.
He'd load freight from night until dawn,
When it got light he was moving on,
as down the road he'd sing a song,
With a voice that was loud and strong,
If Papa could have Kit and Kelly, Darb and Bell,
All other horses could go to ****.
He loved those horses and they loved him.
When the wagons were filled up to the brim
Every horse respected him.
They would satisfy his every whim
as through the mud they'd almost swim.
"Get in there Darb, We've got kids to feed.
Now bust-a-tug because you're in lead.
We've got to get there with this seed
Or I can't raise us any feed.
When the weather was bad and the sluggards keptwarm,
Papa was out in it making a farm.
There were sixteen mouths to feed,
Honey and flour was the need.
Though he worked from sun to sun,
Papa's work was never done.
Mark was the baby so sharp and so keen,
Said, "I'm only four, why does Papa call mefourteen?"
Richard Samuel McAllister 1874-1950 by Annie McAllister Heaton
"My Dear Beloved Blood Brothers and Sisters,
I have been asked to write a few of the incidents, that I recall,pertaining to the life and memory of Papa. This is to be read at theRichard McAllister reunion to be held at the "Heaton's Haven Ranch" onAug 5, 6 and 7th.
Papa, Richard Samuel McAllister. That name cannot be brought upwithout bringing mixed emotions to each and every one of us kids.
He never studied human psychology, not from books at least. Hiseducation consisted of 4 and 1/2 years of formal education. This wasreceived in an old one-room school house in Kanab, after his familymoved there from St George in about 1878. The philosophy in school atthat time was to "whip a child to make him good." If there was anytruth in that, John and Chester should feel real good inside. Thatconcept stayed with Papa until rather late in life. I am sure he hadserious regrets from this during his latter years.
I shall never forget one time when Bernell got the lickin' when itshould have been mine. I'm sure Papa didn't realize this. I wasafraid to tell him. I am sorry Bernell. Then when it would happen toJohn and later Chester, I think I cried harder than they did,secretly. How about the rest of you gals?
Then the first thing we knew Boyd or Rue or someone would start asong and the atmosphere cleared with Luetta at the organ and the restof us gathered around harmoniously singing, "Love at Home." Thatcleared the smoke as blood pressure pills, etc., were unknown at thattime.
Papa knew the concept of REPENTANCE and practiced it frequently.When I was 12 years old Papa had to go to St George to buy a herd ofJersey Milk Cows. Bernell and John had important singing parts in amusical entertainment at school. So Papa had to take me with him. Hetaught me to drive a team on that trip, with one rein in each handinstead of two reins between the fingers of one hand as he did it. AsI recall that trip took most of 2 weeks. Old Frank and Darb pulledthe wagon. I can't recall the name of the saddle pony we used. Itwas the one we had just before we bought the pinto pony. Papa
and I changed off driving the team and riding the pony. We slept outunder the stars both down and back except 2 nights. One was the firstnight out when we stopped at Pipe Springs and camped inside the oldfort. No one lived there then except a black and white animal with alarge bushy tail. It ran over our beds. We laid still and let it haveit's own way. The other time was when we were on our way back. Itwas raining and we went in an old abandoned cabin near RattlesnakeSprings.
Another incident was when they closed the school down on account ofa Spanish
Influenza scare in about 1920, when the soldiers came home and had tobe quarantined in the old big rock and brick school house. Papa tookBernell, John, Boyd and Eleanor and myself down through the gap toFrank Little's farm where we harvested a hugh patch of corn. Papa letEleanor and I harvest all the popcorn by ourselves. We workeddiligently and had it all stacked neatly in a pile. We enjoyed doingthis as we talked of the popcorn balls we would have at Home Eveningsand at Christmas time. Then we walked about a mile and a half to thewagon to get sacks to put it in. Upon returning we found that FrankLittle's large black team of horses had gotten in and had eaten thewhole pile of pop
corn. The next day on our way home we were driving this team andpulling a wagon load of corn to town. Both Boyd and I agreed weshould let the perspiring horses stop and rest. But Eleanor said "No!That is just the popcorn popping inside of them. They don't deserveto rest." Papa, driving the cows loped ahead and stopped us to letthe team rest. He would never mistreat a dumb animal.
Papa was a very spiritual person. As a young man he had manyproblems to overcome but he did overcome them and got on the righttrack. Although irritated by children, he loved each and everyone ofus and fully repented of every wrong or mistreatment that he may havecaused through his quick temper.
During the last few years of his life he frequently referred to his".....basement house without any doors or windows." Then he wouldlook at me out of the corner of his eye which, in the past, had alwaysmeant, "It's time to laugh (At his jokes)." So I laughed because thatalways pleased him. But it didn't really occur to me just what hemeant until the time came and was actually being put down into his"basement house without any doors or windows." The thought suddenlyhit me like a thunderbolt! This was what he has meant all the time. Ithought I was going to smother! Then a peaceful calm suddenly cameover me and I heard Papa's voice say, "That is not me, that is just mybody."
This was the first time I had really realized that that wonderfulpriesthood which Papa strived so hard to gain and to keep, is not forthis life alone, but that it extends on beyond the veil. It is justas real as anything here. May we each and every one be under italways as he and Mama would have us do.
Another time when Mama was about to undergo a cancer operation, Iwas not sold on it. It worried me a lot. I awakened one morning asit was coming light. The family were still sleeping. I slipped outand with a hoe and rake drove to the cemetery in a pickup. In thosedays we had to clean off our own lots if they got done. I quicklyhoed the weeds on Papa's grave, then raked it smooth. Finishing Idropped to my knees pulling a few tiny weeds that I'd missed. Whilethere I bowed my head and said, "Papa, is this operation on Mamanecessary?" The answer came back immediately in Papa's voice, "Yes,Annie, this operation is necessary!" This was not even done in properprayer form nor language, yet there was the answer plain and clear.The veil is thin, Papa is near and is trying to help us.
When I was teaching in a one-teacher school at Mocassin in 1961, Iwas driving out there alone one morning a few hours after a fiercerainstorm. On the road there was a sharp turn around a knoll nearSteamboat Mtn. Swift water had been running down between the road andthe knoll. Ordinarily I would have avoided the edge of the road butthis time I heard Papa's voice say, "Pull over as close to the hill asyou can get." I automatically obeyed, pulling just as close to thehill as I could, just as I did so a teenager came full speed aroundit. Had I not obeyed just when I did, it would have been a head-oncollision.
I repeat, the veil is very thin, Papa is near and is trying to helpus through these trying times. I firmly believe that his priesthood,as well as his family were his two greatest possessions. He knowsthat both of them will be carried on with him in eterntiy.
I made a couple of trips recently visiting Aunt Clara McAllisterShields, 93 years old, then Aunt Rachel Wilson McAllister, 96 yearsold. I found both of them in very good spirits and especially alertin mind and anxious to talk about Dick (Papa) and their memories ofhim.
Aunt Ray recalled as a girl running up behind him and putting herhands over his eyes. He would touch her hands and know who it wasevery time. "I never could fool him" she said. Then she looked downat her hands and said "He wouldn't kinow these scrawny old hands now."
She said Papa used to drive by their place when hauling ice from thereservoir to store in sawdust. The wagon would be rattling on thefrozen road. He would call to them and they to him. He would say, "Ican't hear what you say, but what you call me you're the same."
She kept wanting to talk about Uncle Walt's death. Apparently thatwas the worst tragedy of her life. Papa told her that Walt was notfar away and that he, Dick, would help her whenever she needed him.She told of some men bringing a board to lay Uncle Walt out on beforehe had died. Jessie McAllister Reeves, her daughter, had GrandmaMcAllister's huge glass chandelier restored. It now graces the livingroom of the local (Kanab) Heritage House.
Aunt Clara's first memory of Dick was when they lived in Fredonia.Both ladies agreed that Dick was always the life of a party. He wasalways telling jokes and kept everyone happy. Aunt Clara recalledDick coming down there every fall to help Grahm get Aunt Angie's(Grandpa's 2nd wife) wood for the winter. They would haul 2 loads eachday.
She recalled Dick and Hod Brown coming to their home laughing andgassing. They were on their way to the Kaibab Mtn to get a load ofdeer. (There was no limit on them in those days) She recalled theirleaving Fredonia with a team and wagon, saying, "We'll bring you adeer." Sure enough they came back with 13 deer. They skinned one andleft it there for Aunt Angie- the whole thing!
They had no bridges in those days. When they got ready to leavethey could not get across the wash. They had to unload part of theirload in order to make it across.
Aunt Clara recalls how the wet dirt smelled, more than 90 years ago,when her mother dug out a hole in the wall of her cellar apartment tostore their food in and keep it cool. This was the home which laterwas owned by Sammy Judd. Grandma, Eleanor Adams McAllister, lived onthe main floor, of course because she was the first wife. Aunt Clarastill harbors a resentment against Grandma.
She just kept telling me stories depicting the friction between the 2women. Then she would say, "Don't write that down." That must not bewritten you know. Everybody was happy on the surface.
After Papa's first wife died he took his two small daughters andlived at Grandma Mc's hotel. Some men came there with some good Dixiewine. Papa and Uncle Will and others would occasionally take a nip ofit. One day they lost Beulah, a tiny little girl, when they found hershe had gotten into the Dixie Wine. She couldn't stand up. She said"Dood". Aunt Clara recalls how the men laughed at this but Grandmawas real angry.
Papa's first wife was Harriet Luetta Brown (Tute) She was ElmaMiles and Beulah Frost's mother. She was also Aunt Angie's sister.That is why Grandpa WJF McAllister always said that he was his ownson's brother-in-law. Aunt Clara could not readily recall the nameof the man who said it, but someone said, "You can tell a McAllisteras far off as you can see him, but you can't tell him much. byAnnie McAllister Heaton
Written by Eleanor McAllister Hall
Frankie's got a brand new book, about the funnest I've ever read,
I thought at first I'd bring it and tell you what it said.
Then I thought of Old Dick and "Toot" and Ida too...
There's things about their kids that I could tell to you.
Take Elma, the first of the lot, weighed 20 lbs as a yearling tot.
Fast and wiry her whole life through, she always knew just what todo.
In first grade she needed a break, which the teacher said that shecould take
when she reached the out-side door, rain in buckets began to pour.
Beulah was a laugher... she liked great fun.
She could tie tin cans to animal strays and laugh how they ran fortwo full
They would come up from the creek and ruin our crops, Elma andBeulah watched
them like cops.....
They could harness the horses and Harrow the grain.
But "Butte" always said she'd not do it again.
Lue was fastidious and clean as a minute, she's scrub the back-houseand make
her play house in it.
Bernell's brand was OK which meant Dick's kid of course, as you'dalways find
him straddle of a horse.
He had so much talent it couldn't be hid, Most town-folk thought hima right good kid.
He liked to fight Wesley, he liked a big show.
There was always a song wherever he'd go.
We'll let him sing one for you now, the story of his life is simplya Wow.
Every morning sunshine or rain, Annie would harp on her old refrain.
"I have to get up every morning," Dad would answer the same wornwarning-
"If you don't go to bed at night you won't have to get up in themorning.
John was a joy-boy and also a pain in the neck, he teased everyoneof us like heck!
He had loads of talent that you had to coax, as well as be alert, ora butt of his jokes.
Eleanor, the one of no talent you know, except to keep track of allof you so
and still if you don't behave, I'll get up and sing to you thismeeting through.
Boyd was the one to make us all laugh... his dad in the Bishop'schair would work and try hard to catch him just once when theDeacon's row roared Dad would wiggle and Dad would stew, He knew itwas Boyd but what could he do. His councelor would say, "Cool itDick- let him go, He's the greatest kid in that whole row.
Rue was the one who got me in a fight, pretty innocent littlebutterfly won the baby prize on the 4th of July.
We couldn't buy her frills to pretty her up, high black shoes and adress all sewed up...Mama said "Don't put her in the show- she letus take her, but she didn't go. Annie entered her because she said"They'll know she's the prettiest if they just look at her head."One proud mother set up a howel "I put all the expense I could onthe child and she didn't even place, that McAllister kid has onlyher face."
Her brother Bernell yelled "The ugliest kid in town won the prize."My fist just went up and hit both his eyes.
He was bigger than me and I had to run, after all the judging wasfair and now it was done.
Chester was our worry wart. He looked at details, he named andcounted all the cows as they came in a line from grazing in thehills or pastures all and fine.
He helped support the old folks too while he was in the service ofhis fellow man.
When asked why he wouldn't sing, he said- "There is no whistle inme."
Lawrence was next. He didn't stay long. Fourteen months with us andthen he was gone.
Marcia the tenth one. I was ten when I heard Dad tell the Bishop"This is the tithing one." Dad was such a crank on Tithing, Ithought she'd go as you really never know.
I'd better watch her and soon became like her slave, before I waseleven she was calling me "Mama". She had me trulycaptivated.......that kid still has!!!! I loved her so much thatI didn't want Nettie when I first saw her as a button on Mom's tummy,but when she came and I sat in front of the kitchen stove on thelittle rocking chair and holding her as I had been told to do. Notlooking at her mind you--Just keeping her warm....Marcia came in tosee, "Oh cute, cool, cort" she grinned up at me, "Maggie say" Ilooked...she was cute. She was New. She was beautiful, my lovelylittle sister. I looked at Marcia, I still loved her just as much,right there I learned the great miracle of Love----Love does notsubtract it divides!!!! Never, never diminishes. It can encompassany number. Love is a constant!
and Mark!!!!!The little "stink behind" who actually thought he wasan only child, he was as Nettie always said "Our Pride and Joy" hesaid "Dad calls me number fourteen" I wonder what he does that for?
Love to all of you, Eleanor
