    • Md. (2) 22 Jan 1900 Ellen Bodelle MORTENSEN.
      Div. (civ) abt 1895

      From the book "The Kartchner Family" compiled by Sarah P. Collinwood. Written by Floy Sadler
           "Nowlin was born in Beaver, Utah.  He went to Panguitch with his parents, where his father started a mail route.  He was called with his parents to go to Arizona to help settle there.  On their way they stopped at St. George and did considerable work for the dead and we have record of this work.  Then they went on to Snowflake, and it was here that Father met my mother, Margaret Emma, and fell in love with her.  They were married in the St. George Temple.
           They came back to Snowflake.  While living here three children were born; the eldest, Nowlin, died of scarlet fever.  In order to get a better home, Father sold the log house and built a large one-room slab house with fireplace in it, away out in the field.  We lived here while he built a brick home in town.  Father often played he was a horse and had us ride his back.  In a nearby stream he had a swim with me on his back holding to his suspenders.  These memories are dear to me.  He did not realize how hard it was for Mother to live here so far from town with so few conveniences.  He worked extra hard to provide for his family while he put all the time he could building the new home, coming home completely tired out.  Due to the great struggle both parents had at this time they missed the joy which they otherwise could have had entering their new brick home.  They invited townfolds to have a good dance in the upstairs when it was finished.  There were two nice rooms down and a large room upstairs, which later made two good bedrooms.  Father always encouraged music in our home.
           Three months before Daivd was born they separated.  What a pity that some good friend did not show mother that after her baby she would be normal and want her children to have a father.  Then father was called on a mission to the Southern States, but after a year or so he was forced to return because of illness.  He had chills, fever and boils.  This separation was a great sorrow to me; I idolized my father.  Mother has said that if he had been called on the mission before the separation things would have been very different.  It was some time before Father could walk; later he could walk with a crutch that he could put under his knee.  Then I coaxed him to come home for a visit.  I feel that Mother would have been glad to make up at this time, by what she said.  But Father must have felt it unwise to try it again, and because of this Mother became much embittered against him.
           For five years he worked while visiting some of his brothers and sisters.  He went to Mexico where his brother John lived.  While there he fell in love with Ellen Mortensen.  They were married when they were driven out with the other Saints.  The only things they could bring with them were their clothes and the few things that could be put in a wagon.  Coming into a new country with so little and starting all over again was a trial indeed.  But he was a good worker and found work where others thought there was none to be had.
           I have always loved Father dearly.  We all look forward to being united with Father, Mother and Aunt Ellen and their family in Eternity.  We all love Aunt Ellen's family just the same as our own and feel they have the same feeling toward us.  Dorothy has made a great effort to unite the two families, having them come for extra good reunions.  She is one of the world's best cooks.  We all love her for all she is and does.  Nowlin and Leora have also done all in their power to show love and appreciation for both families.  They have done the things that Father would like to have done if he were still living.  In the Great Beyond Father will show his approval of Leora and Nowlin's kindness to Karl and other members of both families, and also to Dorothy."

      In Memory of Nowlin Decatur Kartchner by his daughter Dorothy Worden:
           "After his marriage to Ellen, in Mexico, he built a lovely two-story house for my mother, on Main Street at Diaz, Mexico.  Their home was one of the loveliest homes in this little Mormon settlement.  They lived here until 1912, when the war in Mexico broke out and all the white settlers were driven out.
           They had six living children and had buried a baby, Alzada, when the Mexican soldiers came down the street one morning and gave the people just three hours to get out of town.  They had to leave their home and come to the U.S.  Life was hard for years, but my father had faith and courage that could not be destroyed by hardships and my dear mother was always there to help him over the rough spots.
           After some time in the Gila Valley, Father moved back to Snowflake and built a home for his family; but after a few years he homesteaded in Linden and built another home there.  He lived here until July 1927, when he was taken to Gallup, New Mexico for an operation which revealed that he had cancer in the last stages.  On the 21st of July 1927 he was called home to meet his maker.  He lived to see four of my family finish high school, Rhea to finish college, and Millard and myself were in college when we were called home at the time of his death."
