      BIOGRAPHY:
      1. Thomas and Mary Ann Burnhope's granddaughter Mary Lucile Burnhope wrote her several very detailed and descriptive biographies of several dozen pages from June 1969 through July 1988. She was this Mary Ann's cousin and references them in the following narrative. I have copies on file of which some details of genealogical interest I here relate. She notes the family would take the train to Ogden for Christmas at her grandparents Thomas and Mary Ann Burnhope's home of which she relates: "Their home at 2264 Madison Avenue was a two story house with an open staircase leading to the upstairs. Grandma's parlor had beautiful English furniture and trinkets from England that were not to be touched, but we could look at them with our hands behind our back. Except for Christmas and very special occasions the parlor was closed. The house was heated with coal stoves, but they did have electric lights and a real bathroom which was a new experience for me. I liked to play on the stairs most of all. My cousins, the Petersens were always there too. They lived in Ogden not far from our grandparents. My Aunt Mary Ann Petersen was my father's only sister, and father was her only brother. They were very close at this time and we always had a wonderful time when we were all at Grandma's house. One event that I always looked forward to at my grandparent's house was on Christmas Eve. After our stockings were all hung up for Santa Claus we had stories, and then Grandma treated us to their English Christmas Eve traditional ceremony. Grandma and grandpa Burnhope were both born in England and lived there until they joined the LDS church and sailed for America in 1868. They met in Ogden and were married in the LDS Endowment House in Salt Lake City on Nov. 18, 1872. There were some English traditions that they continued to enjoy. Grandma would fill a plate with large seeded raisins and pour a small amount of brandy over the top of them. Then grandpa would strike a match and set fire to the raisins and brandy. The flames would go up about a foot. Then each person had to try to get a raisin or two out of the flames. We all succeeded because the fire didn't seem to be hot. The raisins were delicious. When we finished the raisins we had English Christmas cake and a very tiny (about one inch high) glass of what Granma called her own English wine. I don't know how she made it but it was good. Then the children were sent to bed while the parents and grandparents played checkers and chess until the wee hours. These trips to Ogden were so special. After Grandma died in May 1919 we never again had our English Chrismas Eve. Then Grandpa Burnhope came to live with us in Bothwell until he died in March 1922."

      2. From the book "Get Out of Heaven's Waiting Room," by Joyce Ackley, 2008, Xulon Press. Joyce is the granddaughter of this individual:
      "A Taste of Christmas Past.
      With the age I'm carrying, I also carry many happy memories. I think my family would enjoy hearing about some of these memorable moments in my life. How many times have you heard 'back in your day how did you...?'
      When I was little, all of my family, my aunts, uncles, cousins, and one wonderful great aunt had christmas at my Grandma's house each year.
      Grandma's snow white hair, twisted in a bun on the nape of her neck, just barely showed over the huge flaming plum pudding she carried into the kitchen. I wondered why she always came down the hall from the front room with it. (Grandma had no dining room, so we were all crowded in her small kitchen blocking any exit to her back porch.) How did the pudding that had hung in a dish towel on her back porch for the last two months get in the front room? (I'm not sure why the pudding was hung in a towel, but I think Grandma poured brandy on it from time to time so it was soaking up flavor, also, by hanging it formed into a perfect ball. These are just my guesses, but I have no one to explain it to me so your guess is as good as mine.) Of course, I now realize that the kitchen was so full she had to go out the front door, around the house to the back porch, get the pudding and come back to the front and enter the kitchen that way.
      Shirley, Jack and Warner, my cousins, and I all sat like good kids because we had waited all year to eat Grandma's plum pudding. We were very warm scrunched between all the big people at the table. The pine-branch mama put on Grandma's coal stove to freshen the room smelled so good, and while I waited to get my pudding, I enjoyed watching the pine needles turn a rust brown on the stove top. Occasionally one would pop into the air. I don't remember any of them burning. When they were all brown mama would scoop them into the hot fire and we heard a loud sizzle and a pine-fragrance filled the room.
      The blue flame on the pudding would burn out, and its smooth roundness would be portioned into everyone's dish. I had to wait 'til mama lifted the gravy boat full of hot brandy sauce and poured some over the pudding. Holding these few bites in my mouth was such a treat I wiggled them around savouring every taste and feel.
      Finally, as everyone sighed, stuffing in the last wonderful taste of Christmas, Grandma, with a dew-drop of sweat on her upper lip, would sit down to join the family."

      Editor Standard: - Dear Sir:
      This village was aroused form its stupor by the chiming of wedding bells which announced to the villagers that Mr. Peter Peterson and Miss Mary A. Burnhope had been united in the holy bond of matrimony. The services were performed at the home of the bride, our genial judge Murphy officiating. The relatives of the contracting parties, with a few select friends, were present at the ceremony. About 6 p.m., they all preceded to the future home of the happy couple where more of their friends had gathered to offer congratulations and wish them a successful journey through life. At 8:30 p.m. an elaborate supper was served, the caterer being Mr. L. Osborne of Ogden, who, by the way, is an artest [sic] in this line and knows well how to tickle the people's palate. The wedding cake was a marvel of design which everyone admired.
      After supper there were a number of recitations, songs and comic speeches given by the guests which revealed some remarkable talent. After this the large rooms were cleared and dancing was begun, some thirty couples participating and at break of day the tired but happy guests repaired to their homes all voting the event one of the pleasantest ever held in this burg. Among those present were Mr. Peterson and daughter, of Ogden; Mr. and Mrs. Hickinlooper, of Pleasant View; Mrs. Mattenson, Payson; Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Torbonson, Miss May Cottam, of Snowville; Miss Annie Christenson, of Bear River; Mr. and Mrs. T. Burnhope, Judge and Mrs. Murphey, Mr. and Mrs. L. A. Nelson, Mr. and Mrs. T. G. Brown, Mr. and Mrs. O. Foster, Mrs. A. R. McKellips, Mr. and Mrs. M. D. Ferrim, Miss Nora Anderson, Miss Josie Murphy, Mr. Isaac Burnhope, Mr. L. A. Parker, Mr. T. L. Davis, Mr. W. T. Hudson.
      Yours truly,
      Cow Boy."
