"...was baptized in the Provo River, the water was so deep and swift it almost washed us down stream." She loved music and literature and was an accomplished story teller. Some stories were her own creation and some were recitations from memory, of epic poems by various poets. "Enoch Arden" by Tennyson was one of her favorites. It is 29 pages long and she knew every word and made the story live. She was attending Brigham Young Academy studying for a teaching credential when she met Hyrum Edward (Ted) Hatton.They were married in the Salt Lake Temple 7 Jan 1903.
