Carlton Leroy MONROE was born on 30 Nov 1849 in Ransom, Hillsdale Co., Michigan. He served in the military between 1870 and 1875 in Kansas & Dakota Indian Territory. In 1872, he was moved to Dakota Territory for 3 years under Gen. Hazen at Ft. Buford. He died on 10 Feb 1936 in Great Falls, Cascade Co., Montana. He was a Teamster for the I.G. Baker Company in Montana. He was a Cattle Rancher in Montana. He resided at 619 6th Ave. south in Great Falls, Cascade Co., Montana.
Carlton Leroy Monroe was born 30 November 1849 at Ransom, Hillsdale, Mich., the first child Of Harmon R. Monroe and Esther Crommer.
His father's health was sickly. He had what they thought was consumption and died just 3 years after he and Esther were married leaving her a widow with 2 small sons. The second son, Carlos Lloyd, was born the same year 1851 as his father's death.
His mother later married an Aaron Pixley, who was a well-digger, and a half sister, Roby Pixley, was born 14 Jan. 1859, and later a half-brother, James Washington Pixley, was born 19 Feb. 1861.
In 1863, Carlos Lloyd was down in a well and was overcome by damps and his stepfather went down to try and get him out and was also overcome. His mother was again left a widow.
Before he was 21, Carlton ran away to St. Louis to join the army and fight in the Civil War, but was too young. He worked in St. Louis and came west on a boat to Ft. Benton. He enlisted in the Army March 26, 1870, at Ft. Scott, Bourbon Co., Kansas.
At this time, the Indian wars were being fought and one of the places he was stationed was Ft. Gibson, Indian Territory (Oklahoma). He wrote a letter from here to his mother on July 12, 1871, asking her help in getting his release from the Army. He wasnt successful in this endeavor as records show he served 5 years before being discharged on March 26, 1875 at Ft. Stevenson, Dakota Territory. He was a private.
Carlton ran a freight business between Ft. Benton and Helena, Montana. He drove 4 wagons with 16 oxen and was called a bull-wacker as he used a long rawhide whip. He used to drive through Great Falls, Montana, before that city was established.
He and his wife Marias moved to Choteau, Teton County, Montana shortly after they were married. They homesteaded at Willow Creek, 23 Miles west of Choteau. The nearest post office was Saypo. He was a cattle rancher. All the children were born at the ranch except Carlos and Ethel, as they lived there close to 20 years.
While they were living on the ranch, Marias made butter to sell to all the ranches around, as they were milking up to 20 cows in the summertime. She also raised chickens and had lots of eggs to sell. The money she got from the eggs and butter she would save to buy school supplies and clothes for the children to go to school with.
They were pioneers of the Old West, and one of the first settlers to take up a homestead in that part of the country. Carlton helped build the first school house, 3.5 miles from their ranch home. The children would drive to school in a buggy hitched up to 2 horses.
The ranch house was built close to a very nice mountain stream where lots of native trout were plentiful. Also plenty Of wild strawberries, gooseberries and currants grew on the ranch. Marias put up lots of jelly and jams from these. They had plenty Of good milk, butter, eggs, and homemade bread, and meat such as beef, pork, chicken, ducks, and turkeys. They also grew all the vegetables, such as potatoes, corn, pumpkin, tomatoes, rutabagas, radishes, onions, and many other kinds.
Carlton only went to town twice a year for groceries to get sugar, flour, salt, and spices and dried fruit in 25 lb. Boxes. He would always go in a team and wagon, as he would get supplies to last 6 months. They had one of the best ranches in that part of the country, and generally put up about 250 ton of hay every year, and around 100 head of cattle to take care of and feed in the winter. Life on the ranch wasnt easy, but there was always plenty to eat and a warm place to sleep.
Stoves were mostly wood, as coal was not to be had, and there was plenty of jack pine with lots of good pitch that made a good hot fire that would last for hours without adding more wood. For lights they made candles of tallow and white rags. They had coal oil lanterns, but being so far from town, they were reserved for use in the wintertime.
Winters were very long and cold, with temperatures at times reaching 40 degrees below zero. The snow often was 2 feet deep, and drifts in places 15 to 20 feet high. The kids one winter made tunnels in the drifts with caves large enough to stand up in. Most of the children were educated in the little log school house except the younger ones after they moved to Choteau.
In November of 1891, Carlton, Marias, and 3 children, Carlos, Archie, and Etta, along with Marias brother, William Belcourt, and wife Mary and 2 of their children, Mary and Elizabeth, and another brother, Daniel Belcourt, wife and daughter, went in a covered wagon to Lethbridge, Canada, to get script from government land that Marias and her two brothers were entitled to and exchange for U.S. Money. It amounted to about $500 for each of them. On the way home, their horse, Croppy, ran away and they kept saying gently "Ho, Ho, Croppy" over and over until he calmed down, stopped and stood trembling. He was named Croppy because he had cropped ears.
Marias was anxious to get home, as she was expecting her 4th child, Christian Eve. She was named Christian after a Swedish girlfriend who lived in Fort Benton, and Eve as she was born on Christmas Eve. Archie was named after a friend who was at the ranch when he was born. He was disappointed when Etta was a girl, as he wanted a baby named after him. The friend was sick and knew he was dying, as he was poisoned by an Indian woman who asked him to let her fill his pipe. He died a slow death, and was buried in Choteau. Hilda was named after a Swedish girlfriend of Carltons, and Etta named her sister Florence Bell. Bell for Belcourt. Frank was named after Frank Salmond, a neighbor, and Etta also named Ethel Margaret after her great aunt Adelia Crommer Cooper. They called her Etta after Carltons half sisters (Roby Pixley Dillsworth) oldest daughter Etta. When she was baptized 17 Oct 1915, they named her Etta instead. Adelia Crommer Cooper died at the age of 23 at the birth of her baby girl; the child lived.
About 1906, they decided to move to the town of Choteau to give the smaller children a better education. Carlton ran a livery stable, but failed in this business. Marias was a very good cook, and know especially for her turkey dressing and mincemeat. When the hotel in Choteau wanted a turkey cooked for a special occasion, they would always get Mrs. Matt (Carlton was called Matt) Monroe to cook it.
Later in 1912-13, they moved to Great Falls, where they ran a rooming house. Christian Eve was working in Great Falls, and influenced her mother and father to sell their home in Choteau and make the move to Great Falls. There were still 5 children at home - Silas, Wallace, Hylda, Frank, and Ethel. Florence Bell had died of typhoid fever on the 22nd of June 1906 - the first of 10 children to lose in death. Carlton worked as a night watchman for the Great Falls Brewery for awhile.
When their son Archie got married in July 1919, he and his new bride, Martha Saker, lived for awhile at the folks boarding house, In 1924 Archie bought 2 homes on the south side of town - 812-8th Ave. So. He lived in the largest house and rented the three room house next door to his folks. Frank, the youngest boy wasnt married as yet so he lived with his folks. They paid 918.00 a month rent.
As Carlton had served in the U.S. Army he received a pension and this is what they lived on. To supplement his income he worked for the city watering the grass on the boulevards on some of the streets on the south ride of town. He had a cart that the hose wound around and he would push it to where he could hook the hose to the hydrant, unroll the hose and water the lawn. Then move on to the next block, He did this for a number of years until the city decided to let the homeowners water the boulevard in front of their property.
He liked to keep active so he would walk to town, which was about a mile one way, every day when the weather permitted to visit with the old timers he would meet. He always walked with a cane. He didnt need it but carried it to ward off the dogs along the way, He carried himself straight and proud probably due to his army training,
When he was 66 yrs. old he suffered a stroke that left him bed ridden end unable to talk or write. He had beautiful penmanship and after his stroke his writing was illegible. Carlton Leroy died 10 Feb. 1936 at his home in Great Falls Mont. His faithful wife, Marias, then went to live with her youngest daughter, Ethel Margaret Baatz;. I use to love to hear Grandpa tell of his early life and as a bullwhacker etc. but no one ever thought then of writing these stories down so a lot of what I have written is from mine and father's (Archie Harmon) memory.
He use to come over to our house and you could tell that when he saw Mom's Book of Mormon lying on the table he would have loved to have read it. He said the Priest of the Catholic Church wouldn't allow them to read literature of another church, There were two little habits he had that rather irritated my Grandmother; when hed wipe his glasses on her clean starched kitchen curtains, end when he'd line his peas up on the blade of his knife to eat them. I would watch fascinated when he did this to see if any would roll off. He had a sore on his nose that I have wondered if it could have been cancerous as it never did heal, Rather than argue with Grandma about. anything he would leave the house and go for a walk. I have never heard him say anything unkind about her, He'd say, "She's a good woman". He loved my mother as she was always kind and respectful to him,
When he had his stroke Mom would bathe him and change his bed. She never scolded him when he had an accident, as she knew how embarrassed he was that tears would come to his eyes, He would try so hard to talk and because he was unable to he would get tears then also,
I feel it was a great blessing and privilege to have lived so close to my grandparents and to love and know them. My father would never allow us to be disrespectful to them in anyway. Even when Grandma would scold us for something one of our cousins did. We were never allowed to talk back,
I will always remember the delicious turkey dressing Grandma made and her mince meat pies. No one could make it as good as Grandma. She loved to play bridge and 500 and would invite friends to their home far an evening of cards and refreshments, At Christmas time she loved to take me and my brother, Shirley, to her church to see the Nativity Scene in the foyer, She would cell a taxi as she suffered from rheumatism and it was difficult for her to walk to the bus stop. She could neither read or write but she had a remarkable memory as she could hear a recipe on the radio and remember it. She knew money and if the clerk in the store had given her the right change. They were wonderful people and a great example to their posterity. I look forward to someday meeting them again in the life after this.

Harmon R. MONROE was born in 1826 in New York. He died in 1851 in Ransom, Hillsdale Co., Michigan. Alice Eichholz, Ancestry's Red Book, Michigan
Michigan then became a lumbering and mining state, and with the new industries new people and new settlement came too. The first land office opened in 1818, but the difficulty of traveling to the territory hindered extensive migration. It was considered more dangerous to attempt to navigate Lake Erie than the Atlantic Ocean.
Alice Eichholz, Ancestry's Red Book, Michigan
Federally funded lighthouses and harbor improvements, steam navigation on the Great Lakes, and the completion of the Erie Canal were instrumental in increasing the flow of Americans to Michigan. New Englanders and descendants of New Englanders, having previously migrated to New York, began moving to the area. New roads within the state and others connecting to adjacent states made Michigan even more accessible. For the most part, settlers came from New York, Ohio, and Indiana. They were not the very rich or the very poor and were typically farmers, generally young, and usually married.
Hylda Maria MONROE was born on 5 Jan 1898 in Choteau, Teton Co., Montana. She died on 27 Nov 1989 in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Co., Utah.
Hylda Maria Monroe was the 7th child in a family of 10 children. Her parents were homesteaders. At the time of her birth, her father was a cattle rancher. Previous to this, he had run a freight business.
When she was 8, her family moved to Choteau, Montana, where the younger children could get a better education. When she was 14, the family moved again to Great Falls, where the family ran a rooming house.
When Hylda was 16, she met her future husband, Jim Leverich. They met at Griffith Park in Great Falls where the young people in town would go to socialize and dance. They dated for 4 years before getting married at age 20. As Jim was only 20 and too young to get married in Great Falls without his parents consent, they eloped to Fort Benton to get married.
Jims mother Mary Louise was not happy about the marriage. One of her reasons, besides age, was that she felt Hylda was not accomplished because she could not play the piano. As Hylda would later say, neither could her mother-in-law. Mary wanted to have the marriage annulled, but relented when she found out that Hylda had since become pregnant.
Times were tough for Hyldas mother-in-law, as she had recently been divorced and still had a young son Bryan to care for. This may have contributed to her initial negative reaction to her new daughter-in-law. Partly because of this strained relationship, Jim and Hylda decided to leave Great Falls in 1919 with their newborn daughter Marie and move to Grand Junction, Colorado. Jims father had recently moved there and was able to get Jim a desk job with the narrow gauge railroad.
The family didnt stay long in Colorado. Jim hated his desk job and wanted work where he could be outdoors. He took a job as a switchman for the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad in Salt Lake City. They moved their family in 1920, which soon grew with the birth of Jim that same year.
They initially rented a house near downtown Salt Lake on the west side. In 1924, they bought their first home, which was brand new, on 264 Wilson Avenue. The house was located in what was, at the time, farm country being converted to residential land. Everything south of 21st South in Salt Lake in 1924 was rural farmland. Even Wilson Avenue was considered out in the sticks by many.
Their family soon grew to 5 children. Mildred, or Mid, was born in 1925, and the twins, Keith and Kent, were born in 1927. Hyldas husband Jim worked 7 days a week as a switchman at the Roper Yards not far from their home to support his family.
When the Great Depression came, Jim was required to take 4 days a month off. He was fortunate that he was able to keep his job, as many of the men in the neighborhood were put out of work. On these days off, Jim and Hylda would frequently pack up the kids, along with a picnic lunch, and drive to Lambs Canyon nearby for a picnic.
With their modest 2 bedroom home on Wilson Avenue, life was cozy with 5 children. The living room couch was also a fold-out bed for the two girls, and the three boys shared the back bedroom.
The house was heated by a coal-fired furnace. Ice for the ice box was delivered by horse-drawn ice wagon at first and later by ice truck.
During World War II, all three of Hyldas sons, as well as the two daughters husbands, served.
As Jim typically had to work on Christmas, Santa Claus would come Christmas Eve and presents were opened at midnight. After their kids had grown and started families of their own, Hylda and Jim would traditionally hold the Christmas Eve party at their home for their children and grandkids.
The 60s were a hard time for Hylda and the Leverich family. Jim died in 1962 at age 64. In 1966, Mids husband Jack died of a heart attack at the age of 45. Their family was living in Oregon at the time. Mid was terribly depressed after Jack died. She and 2 of her 3 daughters moved in with Hylda. In October 1966, Mid went next door, found a gun, and committed suicide. Hylda was the one who discovered her daughter next door.
After Mid and Jack died, Patti, the 17 year old, was placed in a foster home in Oregon. The youngest daughter, Judy, was raised from about age 12 to adulthood by Hylda. This sudden new parenting responsibility likely kept Hylda very busy, providing companionship, and helping her cope with the loss of a husband, son-in-law, and daughter in a brief period of time.
Hylda lived to be 91. Although struggling with the rigors of old age, she never lost her mental faculties or sense of humor.
