I got the photocopied pages from a book called
"Memories to Share" by Lillian Elizabeth Hurler Millett

It was published in 1974. I was unable to find any other publishing information in the book and believe it was privately published. The book is located at Brigham Young University, Harold B. Lee library. I am unaware if it can be found anywhere else.

Madeline's Dream

“Madeline’s Dream,” was published in the Friend, Nov. 1971

Madeline, her clothes under her arms, ran down the stairs and into the kitchen where her mother was preparing breakfast. Mother looked up to say good morning to her little girl, but when she saw how pale and breathless Madeline was, she asked, “What’s the matter? Are you sick?”

Account of Margaret Stalle Barker (1850)

When we entered the Salt Lake Valley, Mother found herself in a difficult position. Neither she, Uncle Dan nor Mary could speak English, and I only a little. And we no longer had Father to help us. How to live was a problem. Aunt Susette went to work for a family, I no longer remember the name. Aunt Mary, who was eleven, was taken by Mrs. Alfred Randall to take care of her sick daughter, who was seventeen. She was treated by Mrs. Randall, who desire to adopt her, as one of the family. And though Mother wouldn’t consent to the adoption, she remained with Mrs. Randall until she got married.

Florence Hickenlooper Jensen (1890) - service

‬“I would guess Anna Chamberlain and I were about‭ ‬10.‭ ‬We had been given a lesson possibly,‭ ‬but in any case,‭ ‬we had been inspired‭ ‬--‭ ‬we felt‭ – ‬to help someone.‭ ‬We decided to give service to Aunt Sylvia Alvord‭ (‬a very distant relative‭) ‬who was attending her sick son Archie.‭ ‬My mother discouraged me and said she didn’t think we ought to go but we were insistent that we help someone.‭

Florence Hickenlooper Jensen tells about her father Charles Hickenlooper's mission

Grandma Jensen liked to tell this story about her father’s mission. At the time Grandma was a little girl, missionaries weren’t called when they were young men of 19 or 20. Missionaries were most often married men with families. In the summer of 1895, Grandpa Charles Hickenlooper received a mission call to the Southern States. He had to leave his wife and family of five little children with a sixth child due to arrive in a few months.

The First Cars

When Dad and I were in Robertson, Wyoming, Mr. Slade from the Studebaker business in Lyman sold us our first car – a 1916 new Dodge. The top came down, a roadster. He drove it to Robertson for us – then I drove the car back to Lyman to take him home. Henry went but didn’t want to drive it. [We] returned to Pleasant View with the car – very few cars in Pleasant View. Probably the first car in Pleasant View was owned by [my father] Charles A. Hickenlooper who had a company-furnished car. It was a two-seated car.

When the Children Were Born

Our first child, a girl, was stillborn. She had died just a little while before birth due to toxicity. From my bedroom window – I was so very ill – I could look out and see Henry, my husband, carrying the tiny casket on his shoulder to the wagon and then on to the cemetery. Uncle Orson [Hickenlooper] [tried] to comfort me.

[Two years later, we had another daughter, and], I thought Margaret was beautiful as a tiny baby – yet my mother said on seeing Margaret: “She will look much nicer when she fills out.” I thought she looked alright then!
