Birth: Aug. 31, 1828
Gloucestershire, England
Death: Sep. 16, 1905
Fremont County
Idaho, USA

On the 16 of Sept. 1905 Gardner of Teton City was called home, after a short illness. He was born in Glouchestershire, England on the 31 August 1828 and in 1845 joined the faith of the Later Day Saints and subsequently immigrated to America.

Mr. Gardner endured the task of crossing the plains in a hand cart company reaching Salt Lake City in 1856. This trip was made up of hardships and trials occasioned by the lack of food and clothing, some having to get along on four pounds of flour a day and at times not allowed this meager portion.

Mr. Gardner was a pioneer in Cache Vally and was also one of the first settlers in the Snake River Vally and prepared the way for many of this posterity. He was the father of twelve children, eight of whom survived him. He had sixty-three grand children and forty great grand children.

He was a very kind father and was known as "Grandfather" by all. It is safe to say that he has now gained a well earned rest. Rest from the trials and worries of the earth and the words "Wanted on the other side", are indeed applicable.

The funeral was held in Teton on the 18th of Sept. and many floral tributes were present by the friends of the deceased. Good Speaking and inspiring music was furnished at the services, and along cortege of carriages followed to the last resting place.
