(I am a granddaughter of George A and Lovina Shurtliff. I knew Lovina, or Great Grandma Smith as a girl. I never knew George A, but I did know their son, Clyde A, very well. He was a gentle man with a delightful sense of humor. He was stalwart and firm in the Gospel, and taught his children to be thrifty and strong, but also to enjoy life and to look for the good in all things.
The wagon of Joseph Stanford Smith was the last of twenty-six wagons to pass through Hole-in-the-Rock that day. Brother Smith, known as Stanford, had helped others through the passage all day while his wife and three children sat on a pile of quilts in the snow and watched. Apparently not realizing there was one more wagon to come down, the rest of the group had all moved on to the ferry. So Stanford and his wife, Belle, determined that they would have to bring their wagon down by themselves. Belle sat her three-year-old son on the quilts, placed the baby between his legs, and told them not to move until their father came back for them. Ada, the oldest, sat in front of her brothers and said a prayer.
This account describes what may have transpired after the wagon was down, and their father returned to get the children: http://holeintherock.info/pioneers/jssmith4.htm
