So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

  • Notes 

    • The joys of my childhood, the fun that we had. Our kind and gentle Mother, and our extra special Dad.
      Nine special spirits, they were blessed to have, All of them were good, how could we possibly be bad?
      There were four boys and five girls, Red heads, freckled faces, and never any curls.
      Seven grew to have families of their own. Two little boys were called early to go back home.
      I had two big brothers, not around too much. I guess they had girl friends and dates and such.
      My older sisters, they always worked hard, They worked in the fields, and even learned to render lard.
      We two at the last, we always had fun, With games that we played like Run Sheepie, Run.
      There was Kick the Can, Pomp Pomp Pull Away, and many more games, That was played at our big house and barn up the lane.
      The party's we had, the corn that we popped, The ice cream we froze, the fun never stopped,
      The girl friends, the boy friends, as older we grew, Then all of us married, and families we had too....

      Jonathan David Wood, Jr.

      Jonathan David Wood, Jr. was born at Farmington, Utah, on June 20, 1875, son of Jonathan David Wood, Sr. and Cathleen Blanche Bird Wood. He was the second child in a family of twelve. Eight boys and four girls.

      In 1881, when six years old, he came to Fielding, Utah, then known as Poverty Flats. Poverty Flats included all of Bear River Valley. He and his father came with team and wagon to thresh the first crop of wheat that was on his father's ground.

      He had very little schooling, about two years in all, and that was at Farmington, Utah. When eleven, he batched alone on the farm, and every summer after that until he was 24 years old.

      He served as President of the Deacons Quorum for four years, and President of the Priest Quorum for six years. When 24 years old, in 1899, he was ordained a Seventy and was called on an L. D. S. Mission to the Southern States. He served for 26 months traveling all that time without purse or script. People there were bitter against the Saints, and at one time he was shot with a shotgun. He returned in 1901, and moved to Bear River Valley. Here he met Phebe Gleason and on September 9, 1903, at the age of 28 he married her in the Salt Lake Temple. They moved to Poverty Flats, and settled in the little town of Fielding. Their first home was a log house with a dirt floor. Here they had their first child, a boy named David G. Then they built a two-room frame house and their children Ross, Earn, Roxie, and Adeena were born there. In 1914 they built a big home with 3 bedrooms upstairs, and here Viola, Chester, Letha and Phebe were born.

      Father served in the Presidency of the first genealogy organization in the Fielding Ward. He was a Ward Teacher for 33 years. When the 187 Quorum of Seventy's was organized he was made the Senior President. He was the Second Counselor of the Bishopric for two years, with H. L. Richards as Bishop and George Coombs as First Counselor.

      In 1935 they went along with Frank Wood and his wife on a trip through the Northwest to Seattle, Washington, and down the coast to Oregon, California and home.

      In 1936 they went with H. L. Richards and wife back east to New York, and down the coast to Florida, Louisiana, Texas, Old Mexico, California and home. They spent a lot of their winters in California, as some of their children made their homes there.

      For 34 years they lived in the big house in Fielding, and in 1949, they bought a home in Garland, Utah. They farmed all their lives, having about 25 acres of irrigated, and about 160 acres of dry land.

      They are the parents of nine children, four boys and five girls. They lost two of the boys, Earn and Chester, while they were babies.

      In November 1952, Dad took real sick. The doctor said he could not live. All the family was together by his bedside for 3 days while he was in a coma. He got better, but was down again in 6 months. This time he was taken to the L. D. S. Hospital in Logan, Utah, X-rayed good, but the doctor still could not say what the trouble was. He was in the hospital for a week and then went home, but returned to the hospital again in 2 months. This time they decided it was ulcers and put him on a strict diet and he did improve.

      On September 6, 1953, Mother and Dad held their Golden Wedding Anniversary at the old home in Fielding. All of the family was there, and a lot of pictures were taken. On this day their son David and his wife, Ross and his wife, and Roxie and her husband celebrated their 25th anniversary. It was a wonderful day.

      Father died February 16, 1957, at his home in Garland. He was buried in Fielding. After Father died, Mother spent most of her winters in California and her summers in Utah. In 1958 Mother broke her hip, had to have surgery and put in a pin. She responded very well and was able to walk without a cane in a short time. She died May 17, 1960 in San Fernando, California. She was shipped to Fielding for burial.

      As of March 1968 they had 29 grandchildren and 63 great grandchildren.
