Sarah Knowlton

Class of 1884? Sarah Lavina Clark grew up to be a spirited, self-reliant, happy, talented young lady who enjoyed her home life, acquired many domestic skills and intellectual interests, and was held in high esteem by the young people of Farmington. Following in the footsteps of several brothers and sisters, Sarah, at the age of 17, enrolled at Brigham Young Academy, Provo, Utah, leaving her family for the first time. She attended the school from 1883 to 1884. Besides enjoying the stimulating intellectual and social life at the academy, she met and fell in love with a fellow student, Benjamin Franklin Knowlton Jr. who came from quite a different social environment. They were married in the Logan Temple on April 14, 1886. Although the Benjamin Franklin Knowltons were living in Farmington at this time, they had recently moved from the ranch known as Delle in Skull Valley. Frank, having lost his mother Rhoda Richards Knowlton at the age of 16, grew up among cowmen and frontiersmen whose moral codes and personal behavior patterns differed sharply from those of the Mormon people in Farmington. Frank's father, Benjamin Franklin Knowlton, spent most of his life in the saddle as a rancher, scout and frontiersman. He played an active and courageous role in the Mormon Militia during the Utah War. Settling in Skull Valley to ranch with his older brothers George Washington and John Quincy Knowlton, his family experienced the harsh, primitive, frontier conditions of life on the isolated Skull Valley frontier with few of the cultural, religious or social opportunities common to Farmington.

Source: The (Provo) Daily Enquirer, May 25, 1886. Faculty & Staff. Josiah E. Hickman, Training School, Biology, Psychology teacher, 1881-1884, 1900-1907. ~ ~ ~ ~ There is perhaps no more poignant experience for a Mormon raised in the shadow of the temple than to go away to school. Even more than a mission call it creates a sharpened sense of identity, a more acute awareness of being different from the world. In 1892 Josiah E. Hickman left Utah for Ann Arbor, Michigan; he was one of a number of Utah students who found a welcome at the University of Michigan and who represented the vanguard of Mormons who would eventually "go East" for an education. Josiah Hickman also was among the vanguard of Mormons who would devote their lives to the Church educational system. He was graduated from the Brigham Young Academy in 1883 and always insisted that Karl G. Maeser "had laid the foundation of the grandest educational system the world has ever seen". He was principal of the Millard Stake Academy in Fillmore from 1887 until 1892 when he went to the University of Michigan. Following his graduation from the University of Michigan he accepted a teaching position at Brigham Young College in Logan. He later received a master's degree in psychology from Columbia. He also taught at BYH and BYU during his academic career. ~ ~ ~ ~ BIOGRAPHY: Josiah Edwin Hickman, educator and underwriter, was born at Salem, Utah, Aug. 3, 1862, son of George Washington and Lucy Ann (Haws) Hickman. His father, a physician and farmer, was a native of Missouri and of English ancestry. The son was educated at Brigham Young Academy (later Brigham Young University), Provo, Utah; the University of Michigan, where he was graduated A.B. in 1895, and at Columbia University, where he received an M.A. degree in 1907. For thirty-five years he taught school in Utah and Idaho, starting his teaching career at Provo in 1885. During 1888-92 he was principal of the Millard Stake (Latter-day Saints) Academy at Fillmore, Utah. After leaving the University of Michigan he was professor of education at Brigham Young College at Logan, Utah, for a year and then (1897) became principal of the Oneida L.D.S. Stake Academy at Preston, Idaho, remaining there until 1900, when he was made head of the physics department at Brigham Young University. After six years in this post he resigned in order to enter Columbia University. During 1907-11 he was principal of Murdock Academy at Beaver, Utah, and after another year at Columbia University he became head of the department of education at Brigham Young College at Logan and exchange professor at Utah State Agricultural College. He continued in these positions until 1920. During 1920-33 he was associated with the Pacific National Life Assurance Co. of Salt Lake City, except in 1926-27, when he represented the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a missionary in California and in 1930-31 when he was engaged in research at Columbia University on the aborigines of America. Hickman was the author of the Romance of the Book of Mormon (1937) and of numerous religious pamphlets and articles and throughout his life lectured on religious and psychological subjects. For four years he was superintendent of the Utah Stake Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association. While in Idaho Hickman was a regent of the University of Idaho. He was married three times: (1) at Logan, Utah, Feb. 18, 1884 to Martha Ellen, daughter of Dr. David Rogers, of Provo; she died in 1900; (2) at El Paso del Norte, Mexico, June 7, 1890, to Martha, daughter of Robert Lawisch, of Salt Lake City; (3) in Salt Lake City, Jan. 21, 1902, to Helen, daughter of Peter Hanson, of Levan, Utah. By the first marriage, he had seven children: Fern, wife of Sheridan McGarry; Edwin Dee; Othello; Josiah Eugene; George Washington; Lavon, and Lorea Hickman, wife of Thomas Edward Brown. By the second marriage he had nine children: Leonidas Marion; Reginald Lawisch; Juanita, wife of Orral Tillison Whitehead; Radino Lawisch; Valko Lawisch; Rienna (died in infancy); Thorval Lawisch; Kyrmel Lawisch, and Marva Hickman, wife of Ellis Schow Hansen. By the third marriage, he had two sons, Felton and Myrthus Hickman (known under the screen name of Gordon Westcott). His death occurred at Logan, Utah, Oct. 5, 1937.

Frank and Sarah Knowlton

Class of 1884? Benjamin F. Knowlton, Jr.'s wife, Sarah Lavina Clark, grew up a spirited, self-reliant, happy, talented young lady who enjoyed her home life, acquired many domestic skills and intellectual interests, and was held in high esteem by the young people of Farmington. Following in the footsteps of several brothers and sisters, Sarah, at the age of 17, had enrolled at Brigham Young Academy, Provo, Utah, leaving her family for the first time. She attended the school from 1883 to 1884. Besides enjoying the stimulating intellectual and social life at the academy, she met and fell in love with a fellow student, Benjamin Franklin Knowlton Jr. who came from quite a different social environment. They were married in the Logan Temple on April 14, 1886. Although the Benjamin Franklin Knowltons were living in Farmington at this time, they had recently moved from the ranch known as Delle in Skull Valley. Frank, having lost his mother Rhoda Richards Knowlton at the age of 16, grew up among cowmen and frontiersmen whose moral codes and personal behavior patterns differed sharply from those of the Mormon people in Farmington. Frank's father, Benjamin Franklin Knowlton, spent most of his life in the saddle as a rancher, scout and frontiersman. He played an active and courageous role in the Mormon Militia during the Utah War. Settling in Skull Valley to ranch with his older brothers George Washington and John Quincy Knowlton, his family experienced the harsh, primitive, frontier conditions of life on the isolated Skull Valley frontier with few of the cultural, religious or social opportunities common to Farmington. For the first few years of their married life, they lived in Grantsville, Utah. As the ranching business did not prosper, they moved back to Farmington, taking up residence in a house north of the Knowlton farm. Frank farmed and worked at various jobs in and around Farmington without much success. Discouraged by his economic difficulties and the continued deterioration of his relationship with his father, he concluded in 1900 to leave his wife and seven children and try his luck in the Philippine Islands. The American Government was then recruiting American workers for construction projects in the newly-acquired islands. Until 1902, Frank regularly sent home money to support his family. Then without any explanation, the money ceased to arrive. The family was thrown suddenly upon its own resources. After the sudden death of her mother in 1902, Sarah moved her family into her mother's home to live with Laura and Horace, who had not yet married. By taking in boarders and through the labor of family members and some assistance from relatives, the Knowlton family managed to survive. My father and his brother Richard often worked on farms far from home during the summer months, often receiving harsh treatment and minimal wages. As each of the children matured, they were forced to seek employment to sustain the family. Those years were difficult ones for Sarah Clark Knowlton and her family. Although Sarah and her children were active in the Farmington Ward, rumors of Frank's misconduct in the Philippine Islands spread through Farmington in the 1900's, damaging the family's social position in the community. Not hearing from her husband, Sarah secured an uncontested divorce in 1905.
