I am just realizing that other ordinances for the Kidgell family were done that same day, 14 Nov. 1894. Fred's mother, Sarah Ann had five of her nine children sealed to her and her deceased husband Charles. Sarah Ann and Charles were sealed to each other in the Endowment House on 9 Jun 1866. Three children were born after 1866 so were BIC (Born in the Covenant.) Fred acted as proxy for his deceased father Charles. Lily Jane acted as proxy for Caroline Loftus Kidgell who died at age nineteen months. Others in attendance in the Temple were my great-grand mother Sarah Ann (Sadie)Kidgell Hepworth and her young son's James Edward Hepworth and Charles Vern Hepworth who acted as proxy's for three other deceased sons of Sarah Ann and Charles Kidgell. What a joy full day this must have been.
Fred was active in the LDS Church serving as Superintendent of the Sunday School as well as other Church positions; in 1935 Fred and Lily Jane were called by the Stake Presidency as special missionaries to do ordinances work in the Logan Temple during that year. How they enjoyed doing this assignment.
Fred was a good cook; one of his specialty was making sauerkraut. He went to the town of Providence to find out how the German people living there made it. He had his pretty white barrel and made a tamper. He would cut up the cabbage he grew in his garden and tamp it tight into the barrel. Then it had to stand so long in the barrel to ferment. Just thinking about it makes our mouths water. (From the history written by Melba)
