ROBERT and LENA MICHIE FAMILY, By Frank Clark

“I remember the Michie family as one of the first families in the area. It was a large family: Genie [sic], LaPreal [sic], Genevieve, Fern, Violet, Hilda, Trevor, Marvin, Rula and Lambert, to name a few. Brother Robert Michie was killed in a sawmill accident. Trevor was the first corpse in the Tabby Cemetery. Ray Rhoades was second. Rober Michie was the first man to be buried there. The family moved away after his death. Mrs Michie made cheese for her friends and was very congenial and loving lady and a great help in the ward. Everyone loved her and her older daughters.

“The land for the cemetery was given by Lorenzo and Benjamin Clark for the valley to use as a resting place.”

Obituary notes for Elena Dorothy LAMBERT
ELENA DOROTHY LAMBERT MICHIE
Pioneer Utah Woman Dies at 94 in Provo

Mrs. Elena Dorothy Lambert Michie, 94, died this morning at her home in Provo of causes incident to age. She was born in Salt Lake City on April 9, 1863, the daughter of John and Elena Hansena Larsen Lambert. She was married to Robert Moroni Michie on Jan. 7, 1886, in the Logan Temple. They made their home in Woodland, Wasatch County, where their 11 children were born.

In 1908 they moved with their family to Tabiona, Utah, where they homesteaded and helped settle the town. Shortly after this move their baby son died and was the first one to be buried in the Tabiona Cemetery. Mr. Michie died 16 months later on Feb 23, 1912, following an accident at a local sawmill.

Mrs. Michie was a very devout member of the LDS Church and served as president of the Tabiona Ward Relief Society for 10 years. In this capacity she served as nurse, seamstress, spiritual advisor and mortician. She was called into all the homes during llness and assisted during many a childbirth. After moving to Provo in 1921 she served as work director in the Manavu Ward Relief Society and directed the making of hundreds of quilts.

Her life has been one of pioneering and hard work until she moved to Provo. Flowers and handiwork have been great hobbies of Mrs. Michie. She has made many a quilt in her life making her first, a crib quilt, when she was six years of age. Her home has always been beautiful with flowers both inside and out, which seemed to thrive under her tender care.

Mrs. Michie has 162 living descendants which include her 10 children, 45 grandchildren, 106 great-grandchildren and one great great grandchild. Surviving are her eight daughters and two sons, Mrs. Eugenia Sharp of Heber City, Mrs. George H. (Myrtle) Wilcken of Duchesne, Lambert M. Michie of Salt Lake City, Marvin R. Michie of Tabiona, Mrs. E. M. (Rula) Wrigley of American Fork, Mrs Fern Lewis, Mrs. Thomas (Violet) Parry, Mrs. Genevieve Allen, Mrs. Preal Jones and Miss Hilda Michie all of Provo. She also has a sister, Mrs. Emmeline L. Carpenter of Park City who survives.

Friends may call at the home at 488 E. 6th N., Friday evening from 6 to 9 and Saturday prior to the services.

Encyclopedic History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Woodrow Branch:
In 1874 Thomas P. White and family took up some land on Bench Creek, about two miles southeast of Woodland, and soon afterwards other settlers took up land in the district on both sides of Provo River, and for several years the settlement was know as Bench Creek in Wasatch County. Under this name a branch was organized in 1877, with John T. Moon as presiding Elder. On July 25, 1881, the Woodland Ward was organized with Henry Moon as Bishop. Bishop Henry Moon was succeeded in 1885 by his son, John T. Moon, who was succeeded in 1891 by Ephraim Lambert, who was succeeded in May, 1906, by Thomas A. White, who was succeded in August 1906 by Emanual B. Murphy...
--------------------------

Woodland is an unincorporated rural community settled in 1867 along the valley of the Provo River. The river is the county boundary, and the community is divided down the middle, with part in Summit County and part in Wasatch County.
The first families were the Gines, Potts, Moons, Knights, and others. The early economy was based on saw mills cutting railroad ties and mine timbers for use in the Park City mines. Ties could be floated down the river at high water to Hailstone (now under Jordanelle Reservoir) then hauled to Park City. As the river bottoms were cleared of timber, the ranching economy developed. The Woodland LDS Ward was established in about 1867. By 1875 there was a post office, though it did not last long.
The Wasatch County side of Woodland was originally developed as a separate community known as Bench Creek. Because of the difficulties in crossing the Provo River in the early days, there were schools run in Bench Creek by Wasatch County and in Woodland by Summit County. Schools finally consolidated in Woodland, and ultimately transportation improvements made consolidation into the South Summit School District in Kamas a better alternative. By 1938, both Bench Creek and Woodland students were attending school in Kamas.
There was a proposal in the 1890's to build a railroad from Hailstone (also known as Elk Horn, and now under Jordanelle Reservoir) over Wolf Creek Pass to the Uinta Basin. The rail bed for the Utah Central Railroad was actually graded from Hailstone into Woodland, in intermittent sections. Parts of it can still be seen along Lower River Road. The rail line was never completed, in large part because the western end of it did not connect to anything. There must have been an assumption that the Denver and Rio Grande, which had extended up Provo Canyon to Heber City in 1899, would extend on to the Ontario Mine at Keetley. That link was never built, and the Utah Central line was abandoned. Woodland continued as a ranching community, relying on lush river bottom meadows and high mountain pastures.
In 1889, the Wasatch Wave newspaper reported that there were three general stores in Woodland-Keeler's, Phillips' and Moon's. One of these became the Woodland Cash Store, later owned by the Winterton family. They built the existing Woodland Cash Store building in 1929, after a fire had destroyed the previous building. It was a full service retail business, providing everything from groceries to household furnishings and clothing, and gas. It was operated by Luella Winterton Walker and her husband Mont Walker into the 1970's. Others leased it and tried to keep to going into the 90's, but by then most of Woodland's households had people working in Kamas, Park City, or Salt Lake, and the Woodland Cash Store could not compete against the bigger stores. The building survives as a private home.
The scenic beauty of the upper Provo River canyon has made Woodland a popular summer retreat through the years. It is now seeing a significant increase in full time population as people leave the cities to seek the peace and beauty of rural life. There are numerous summer and winter recreation opportunities in the area. Popular trail heads are at Nobletts Creek, Bench Creek, Rileys Canyon, and Cedar Hollow. The Uinta National Forest offers camp grounds and all kinds of outdoor recreation.

Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church…
BENCH CREEK BRANCH, Wasatch Stake, Wasatch Co., Utah, consisted of a few families of Latter-day Saints residing along the Provo River in the south end of Rhodes Valley, or Kamas Prairie. These families were [p.57] organized into a branch of the Church known as the Bench Creek Branch in 1897 with John Moon as presiding Elder. He was succeeded in 1898 by Peter Duncan, and the branch had 110 members, including 32 children, at the end of 1900. Soon after that the branch ceased to exist. In 1930 the saints in the locality belonged to the Woodland Ward of the Summit Stake.
---------------------

Notes taken from the minutes of the Tabiona Ward:

The Tabiona Valley is situated on the upper Duchesne River mostly in a beautiful valley extending from southwest to northeast along the river. The valley is about ten miles long with average width of two miles. The Tabiona townsite is situated on the east side of the river, at a point where the valley is about two miles wide, in the north-east quarter of the north-east quarter of Section 31, Township 1 South, Range 7 West, Uintah Special Meridian, 45 miles by mountain road south of Kamas in Summit County, Utah, 18 miles north of Fruitland, ten miles south-east of Red Cliff, and 27 miles northwest of Duchesne.

The valley in which Tabiona is located is one of the finest valleys in the Uintah Basin,and grain is raised most successfully. About one half of the people reside on the townsite and the other half live in a scattered condition on their respectives farms, strung out on both sides of the river. Alfalfa and timothy are staple productions. There are also a few young orchards. Along the river are fine growths of cottonwood. Water is plentiful, and cedar and pinion pine abound, easy of access. The farms are irrigated from canals which tap the river at different points. Wheat, oats, barley, corn, potatoes and vegetables are raised. The townsite nestles at the east base of the well-known Tabby Mountain, which rises to an altitude of about 11,000 feet above sea level. Coal is found adjacent to the settlement and is used for local purposes. It can be obtained at the rate of $3.50 per ton.

...Nearly all the settler are farmers and stock raisers. On the townsite there are two stores carrying general merchandise, a post office, a meetinghouse, a fine brick school house, two blacksmith’s shops and a number of fine residences. In the mountains, near the settlement there are three sawmills
---------------------------

Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church:

TABIONA WARD, Duchesne Stake, Duchesne Co., Utah, consists of the Latter-day Saints residing on the upper Duchesne River, mostly in a little valley (one of the most beautiful in the Uintah Basin) extending from southwest to northeast along the river. The valley is about ten miles long, with an average width of two miles. The Tabiona townsite is situated on the east side of the river, ten miles southeast of Redcliff, 27 miles northwest of Duchesne, and 45 miles by mountain road southeast of Kamas, Summit Co., Utah. About one-half of the people reside on the Tabiona townsite, and the other half live scattered on their respective farms, strung out on the east side of the river.
Immediately after the Uintah Reservation was opened for white settlers in 1905, Alma W. Wagstaff and others filed on land and built cabins in that part of the country now included in Tabiona Ward. The actual settlement of Tabiona took place in the spring of 1906, when a number of Latter-day Saints located there. A townsite was surveyed on lands which had formerly been owned by the Indian Chief Tabby, and in his honor the place was named Tabbyville, afterwards changed to Tabiona. A branch of the Church was organized at Tabbyville July 24, 1910, with Thomas A. White as presiding Elder. This branch was organized as a regular bishop’s ward Dec. 10, 1911, called Tabiona instead of Tabbyville, with James Simpkins Jones as Bishop. He was succeeded in 1916 by Alma W. Wagstaff, who in 1920 was succeeded by Claude L. Wagstaff, who in 1926 was succeeded by H. Guy Jones, who in 1930 was succeeded by Jessup R. Thomas, who presided Dec. 31, 1930, on which date the Church membership of Tabiona was 341, including 100 children. The total population of the Tabiona Precinct was 277 in 1930.
------------------------------------

At a special metting held at Tabby July 24, 1910 a branch of the church wass organized with Thomas Z. White as presiding Elder and Thomas Rhoades as first and James S. Johne as second counselor. The branch was named Tabby (changed from Tabbyville). (Stake History Record, p. 67

The [Tabiona] Sunday School was reorganized July 24, 1910, with Arthur W. Maxwell superintendent, Robert M Michie first assistant, Joseph E Rhoades second assistant. (Tabiona Ward Records, Book B, p.1)

At a High Council meetingheld Dec. 10, 1911, James Simpkins Jones was chosen as bishop of a new ward to be organized and called Tabiona with Robert Michie as first and Bruce Maxwell as second counselor. (Record : A104. James S Jones was ordained a Bishop and set apart to preside over the Tabiona Ward by Apostle Orson F. Whitney, alsot the counselors apart at this time. (Stake and Ward Stistical Reports, page 256.)

Counselor Robert Michie died, and William G. Michie was sustained as first counselor in his stead at a ward conference held October 19, 1913. (Ward Hist., Record B: 48)
