Opis: The Sheaf of a Gleaner - Pratt Reba Beebe
Excerpt from The Sheaf of a Gleaner: Poems
Reba Beebe Pratt was born April 1st, 1856, in Polk City, Polk County, Iowa, fifteen miles north of the capital, Des Moines. Her parents were George Beebe and Hester Ann Rogers Beebe; she was descended by her mother from John Rogers, the martyr of Smithfield, England; she also inherited French, Scotch and Irish blood, but for all that is fully an American by birth and principle.
Her parents were members of the "Mormon" Church; when driven from Nauvoo they stopped in Iowa for the winter, but remained several years.
It has been said of Reba, "she came in the meridian of time," for, like Edward E. Hale, she had the good luck to be born in the middle of a large family.
In the spring of 1839, she crossed, the plains with her parents on a visit to Utah; they returned to Iowa the next year and did not locate permanently in Utah until 1876. She still remembers incidents of that journey.
Her father's house was the home of the Elders. In every way possible he helped to advance the cause of the Gospel; Reba was early taught its principles, and December 4th, 1869, was baptised by Elder Moroni L. Pratt. On the 23rd of December, 1869, her eldest brother died after a lingering illness; that was the first grief she had known.
