His service in his church, on the City Council, and carrying the Olympic Torch are some additional information. This is a chance to be reminded of the memories of your own contact with him as well as learn to know even more about he and his wonderful wife Irene. And sprinkled liberally throughout the book are more than 300 pictures. Enjoy!
The Biography of Warren Cox and Mary Etta Lee tells about their childhoods, their families, their lives, Warren’s businesses in Delamar at the gold mine, with the Studebaker Wagons and then Cars as well as the Arrowhead Hotel. It tells of their home life, Warren being raised in a polygamous family, their community life, and even the pranks and happenings of their children. In addition to the 242 pages of stories and information, there is a descendancy chart of their posterity in 1995 when the book was written by Lida Larkin.


Walt Brooks served a mission at age 19 when things were very different. No missionary training center so they learned the language in the field – a mission home in Los Angeles for their service in Texas and Mexico – a patriarchal blessing after arriving in the mission field – highwaying (or thumbing a ride) to go from small town to small town to fill their priesthood duties - and much responsibility for the sister missionaries.
This mission journal was kept in a 5 year diary that you could write just a paragraph for each day in the year. He kept his 2 ½ year mission in this manner. It’s fun to see his growth, his successes, his challenges, his service, etc. What a treasure to learn more about the missions in that time frame of 1932-1934
The story of Isaiah Cox and his 5 wives in a polygamous setting. This book tells about the parents of Isaiah and each of the wives and how they came to Utah and then to St. George to settle. This story entails a mini-church history, a mini-pioneer history of crossing the plains, a mini-settlement of St. George history, as well as a family history. This is a factual book of the things that happened to them and their ancestors as well as their own families. It’s full of fun stories, challenging events, and the faith and determination of people determined to succeed. We intend to reprint this book if we get enough interest. It contains over 300 pages of history.
