Trivia, Trivia

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandpa (Edward F.) Carter, who was always called Ed, wore his curly hair in long ringlets when he began school in 1884 at the age of six. The boys at school made fun of him, so he went home, took some scissors, cut off his ringlets, and burned them up. He went to school through the 6th grade. Grandpa (Laning) Hall went to school through the 8th grade. Both of their wives attended college at BYU--Grandma (Caroline Ferguson) Hall graduating in 1909.

According to the 1880 U. S. census Edward M. Carter, Ed’s father, could neither read nor write. But he was a talented musician. Mary Angela (who went by the name of Ann), Ed’s mother could read but couldn’t write according to the same census.
