Could you please get a picture of Karen's grave? She was my grandmother, who I never knew. I was named after her. There's no way I'll ever get there, as I live in Alabama. Thanks, Karen

Esther Avrilla Alexander Mitchell
Hi Debi,

Thanks for your submission to Find A Grave. How are you related to Esther Avrilla Alexander? I lived in Tabiona, Utah, and I knew some of your family names.

Do you have a record indicating Esther's birth date, 06 Oct 18"66", and birth place, "Saint George, Washington", Utah? The informant on her death record was Esther's fourth husband. Here is the cite:

"Utah Death Certificates, 1904-1956," index and images, FamilySearch ( : accessed 12 Oct 2013), Ester Avrilla Mitchell, 22 Sep 1922.

However, all of the submitters to the LDS Church Pedigree Resource Files list Esther's birth year as 18"62" and her birth place as Mountain Dell, Salt Lake, Utah. Here is the cite: "Ancestral File", database, FamilySearch ( : accessed 2013-08-30), entry for Esther Avrilla Alexander.

Just wondered if you have any other records you would be willing to share to add evidence of the correct date and place.

For your information, Esther (there is an "h" in her name) Avrilla [spelled many ways] Alexander's daughter, Esther Amelia Wilgus Gines is my great grandmother. I lived by her, and I was eleven years-old when she died. Esther Avrilla's mother is Esther Amelia Russell. There are three generations of Esthers. Esther Amelia Wilgus' nickname was "Tett", Esther Avrilla Alexander's nickname was "Essie". The censuses changed the spelling of the name Esther to Ester/Fester! Plus the Esther's ages on the censuses are not consistent.

As indicated at Find A Grave Memorial, she had other biological children. Do you have records that verify their factual information?

Again thank you for your contribution to Find A Grave.

Opals head stone lists mothers name as Ada but seems to be the same person as Annis.

Lucille C. Giles is Mary Lucille Carlile. She is already in Find A Grave under the correct name. She was the daughter of John Williamson Carlile and Emma Giles. I should know, she was my mother's first cousin and I knew her very well. Please make this correction.
Thank you,

RE: Dennis Clarence Scofield
Here is what I have from my grandmother's sister's journal. She recorded it from Teresa Richardson Scofield, which was the wife of Dennis Clarence Scofield.

"After the birth of her daughter, Aunt Teresa was very ill. Her husband and mother persuaded her to go to Salt Lake and stay with her brother Ray and his wife in S alt Lake City so she could rest and regain her health. They said that they would take care of the little boy and girl if she could take her oldest son with her. (He was from a previous marriage). This she did. She loved her brother (Raymond LaRocco) and hiw wife very much.

Teresa stayed for a short time and began to get better, but missed her children so much she decided it was time to return home.

Upon arriving home, she found that her husband and his mother had given her children away. She pled with them and also with the authorities for the return of her children. Her mother-in-law and husband had lied to the authorities. They led them to believe that Aunt Teresa had deserted her children. She felt her life was ruined. She searched continually for years for her little girl and boy, but could not find them. After a few years, her son returned to Idaho and she met him again some years later, but she never found her little girl."

I don't know how you are related to Clarence, and I do not want to cause any hard feelings. I have just been devastated by this story. I know that the son was Keith Ernest Scofield and he was born 30 April 1925. The little girl was named Beth Scofield and was born May 7, 1926. I have a picture of Teresa Richardson Scofield with them before she left for Salt Lake.

I just want to find out what happened to them.

I found Keith listed on the 1930 census under his granfather's home with his father living there too. I have not been able to find anything else.

If you have any other information, I'd be forever grateful.

Thank you!

I am looking for the daughter of Dennis Scofield, Beth, born in 1926. Do you know anything of her? I see there is a Beth mentioned, but from what I can tell that Beth was born in the 40's. Thank you!

Thanks for making the correction so quickly. It's very confusing when a headstone shows the last names for 2 husbands.

Thanks so much for the work on these graves. The pictures are marvelous and the work is greatly appreciated. These are my great-great grandparents but I live in another part of the country and am not able to visit the cemetery. Receiving such kindnesses motivates me to help those with relatives buried in my own neighborhood. :) Thanks again!

RE: Chatwin
So just wanted to fill you in on a little history on Beth. She married my brother Douglas Tolman Smith. He was killed at 25 leaving Beth with 4 small children to raise. Their son Gary Douglas Smith was also killed in a tragic farm accident. And Beth was hit and killed by a truck several years later. If you want to read their memorials you can go in on my virtual cemeteries to my brother and it will take you to Beth, Their son and also her parents. Just thought you may like to know about her.

Debi I see you have relatives named Chatwin in the Tabiona, Utah cemetery. My sister-in-law Beth was a Chatwin. Her father was Melvin H. Chatwin and his parents Nephi and Sarah Clegg Chatwin are buried in Tabiona. Just wondering if you were related?

Now I am more confused. We were following from his grandmother back and now two people have added her in under two different Birthdates.
They both have the same death date, same cemetery.
Anyway I really appreciate your help on this and if you do find James Otis Thomassen that would be great. I can understand the difference between The Jensen and Johansen. I have several ancestors from Denmark and the names changed with almost every generation. I will keep both in my virtual cemetery until we find out which one is correct.
You are special for doing this. How far is Richmond from Logan? or Woodruff and Randolph?
I live just out of Salt Lake City in Draper, Utah and I am trying to help my friend trace his family line back.
