MORONI H. DOXEY

MORONI H. DOXEY was born August 13, 1860 at 147-27th Street, Ogden, Utah, to Thomas Doxey and Ann Elizabeth Hunt Doxey. He was the fourth child in a family of seven children. His birthplace at 147-27th Street is a little log house that is still standing, although it is over 100 years old. The house is still owned by his family.
His entire life was spent in the Second Ward living in it 91 years lacking two weeks. Ron, as he was known, was blessed June 5, 1862 and baptized November 4, 1869 in the Weber River by Charles Welch and was confirmed November 4, 1869 by Robert McQuarrie.
The First school he attended was on Lincoln Avenue in the rear of 2760. It was known as the poor lot and consisted of a one room adobe house with a dirt floor. It was heated by a large stove located in the back of the room. The teacher was a man by the name of Leavitt. Mr. Leavitt cooked corn on the stove and ate it during school hours. The pupils worked. in his garden for which they received school credit for their work. They had no blackboards and wooden benches were used for seats.
Another school he attended was on the four hundred block of 24th Street where the Old Court House later stood. A Mrs. Wilson was the teacher here. His next school was located where the Elk s Club now is on Grant and 25th Street. There was a large spring nearby where the Old Brown Ice Cream Company was located later. It is Swift s Ice Cream Company now. Grant Avenue was first named Spring Street after this Spring. The School children used to get their drinking water from the spring. The place where the City Hall Square is now was also very swampy. The Grant School was taught by L. F. Moench a wonder teacher. We do not know how long Ron went to school but it was not for long.
We have heard him tell of going to St. George to herd cows, for his Uncle Lorenzo Clark. Here he was frightened by Indians that seemed to come toward him. Another story that he told about his St. George adventures was of being out on the hills when a flock of sand cranes come into the field. He tried to drive them back. An Indian, on a beautiful horse came and told him not to do that, because the sand. cranes would turn on him and kill him. He gathered his cattle and hurried away. One time when he was herding the cattle he got lost. An Indian found him and took him to Aunt Mary Clark's place. He said if you were good to Indian they would be your friend.
When Ron was a boy of nine he helped his father grade the roadbed for the first Transcontinental Railroad between 28th Street and the Union Station on Wall Avenue. He drove the horses and wagon.
At twelve years of age he aided the men in obtaining rocks from Ogden Canyon for the foundation of the Second Ward Chapel. There was swampy land where the building was erected and they had to fill up the swamp with big rocks before they could start. Water still comes into the basement of the building today. However, a number of years ago Bishop Simmons was talking with Father about this water and Father suggested they put a pump on it and use the water to water the lawn. This was done and that is the way the lawn is watered today. When it is not being used the surplus water goes into the sewer. The Second Ward Chapel was finished in 1856. However later about 1900, the the back of the building was added on and Father's brother Samuel was the architect for it.
Father was a ward teacher for 59 years but he worked on Sundays so was unable to do much else in the church.
On May 10, 1869 when Moroni was 9 years of age the first train came into Ogden. He was the water boy for the men working on the tracks. As the train came in the engineer blew the whistle. Father did not move, but most of the people ran as fast as they could frightened to death. The engineer said, "Boy you will be a railroader when you grow up." This prediction came true. He entered the service of the Union Pacific in August 1881, as a trucker, at the Ogden Freight Station, and in January of 1891 became check clerk for the Southern Pacific. In November, 1907 he changed to the Oregon Shortline. In July 1918 he was transfered. to Town Track Clerk and remained in that capacity until retired on September 1st, 1930, having reached 70 years of age. He had worked for the railroads for 49 years and ten months of continuous service.
His mother had passed away when he was twelve years of age. His Father married Mary Roades Burt shortly before the death of Ron s mother. He lived with his father and Aunt Mary Doxey until he married. On June 9, 1886 at the age of 26 he married his childhood sweetheart, Olive Jane Riley, in the Logan Temple. They had a reception at 173 27th Street, the Riley Home. Moroni and Jane had worked together to get a home of their own. before they married. This home was established at 367-27th Street. They lived their entire live in this home and their daughter Ethel still lives in. it. Each were buried from this home with services in. the Second Ward. Jane passed away December 6, 1903 leaving five small children, Olive, Irma, Ethel, Willard. and Elwood Doxey.
When Jane passed away her oldest sister, Mary Ann Riley (Annie to Us) with Grandpa Riley moved into our home and with Father took care of the children. Grandpa Riley lived with us but in 1905 he passed away too. Grandmother Riley had passed away in June of 1903, the same year Jane died.
After seventeen years of widowhood, Moroni married Elizabeth Thompson in the Salt Lake Temple June 9, 1920. They lived together for. 12 years. She passed away January 23 1932.
Moroni H. Doxey was honored at the Second Ward's Father Day Services in 1949. He was the oldest member of the Ward and had lived in the ward, about 91 years. At this meeting he spoke of the history of the ward, the different bishops c the ward who had advanced to much higher position in the church
He was an active worker in the ward all his life. A week prior to his death he prayed at the funeral of Mrs. Ann Oakden. He had been her wardteacher for thirty years.
It was said he could remember the principles and history of the church and could discuss them with anyone. He seldom missed a Sacrament meeting. He had heard every President of the Church speak from Brigham Young to David O. McKay.
Moroni H. Doxey passed away July 29, 1951. Services were held from his beloved Second Ward, August 1,1951.
Moroni was an Honorary member of the Sons of Utah Pioneers.

The following is from a fax cover page from a Martin Oram in the Lake District in the North of England:

Dear Tim,

Here is the family tree. The early Orams all lived in Keymer which is near Brighton on the coast of Sussex. They tben moved North to the Tonbridge area. What we wonder is which Viking invasion did they come from? We have found two villages in Denmark both called ORUM.

Hope we can link our families up and then you can help with the ______ William.

Dear Tim Farr,
We are researching our tree and it starts with William Oram who was married to Sarah, moved into Keymer parish and had a large family from 1716. In 1790 Edward was born and changed the spelling to Orrom and we have a fairly complete tree from then. If you are interested in our details I shall be glad to share them with you . Should you have any advice for us on how to go further back from William (died 25 April 1762)  we would be very grateful. We live in the Lake District which makes local studies difficult...
Yours Martin Orrom

The following is an email:

Dear Tim,
We live in the Lake District in the North of England. It will be easiest to fax to your works so I'll do that after checking my corrections. I started researching my tree just over a year ago and quickly made contact with Howard Orrom who turned out to be a second cousin. Contact was made by writing to all the Orroms in UK telephone directories: there  were only about 9 others outside my immediate family. So between us we have found relations in Canada and New Zealand.You are the first in the States...
best wishes           Martin.

If you haven't already looked at these it might be worth while. The IGI for Sussex has a Henry Oram marrying a Jane Packham 1 Aug 1818 at Keymer which sounds possible given faulty transcription. The Batch Film No is 7511839 serial 71. Perhaps the film might help. There is also Henry b Haywards Heath 1801 relative James G Oram Film 0183473 and also a Henry so Thomas & Eliza b 08 Mar 1807 at Cuckfield Film No 0447998. (these are births not christenings)The same film contains info re the Marriage of the latters father Thomas, to Eliza about 1775.

Hello Tim,

Sorry to be so late in replying.  I have recently spent a long period in hospital and now I am trying hard to catch up with my mail.

There may possibly be a connection between my James and the Henry you mention, but I have no evidence to prove it. If he married about 1822 and assuming he was about the same age as Lucy, then James would have been born c.1798, but this is pure guesswork.

The area around Tonbridge seems to be a likely location as Jame's wife Lucy Bishop came from the village of Piddinghoe which is not far from there.

Arundel is another place where James and Lucy lived and where 3 of their children were born.

Their children were:

Richard Alfred (my 2xgt.grandfather) born Brighton 1823.
Walter William born Arundel 1826.
Charles Thomas born Arundel 1828.
Edwin born Arundel 1830.
Frederick Aaron born Brighton 1832.
Louisa Ann Mary born Islington, MDX 1841.

Apart from this, I know nothing of previous generations.

About variations in spelling, in the 1891 census Richard Alfred's surname was given as Orram.

Hope you can find something of interest in the above.

Ray Oram.
