Byron Eugene McKinnon
I just found an old news clipping from the Rich County Reaper on Utah Digital Newspapers Project's site. Heading is "Wedding Dance Held for Young Couple". After analyzing the names and relationships, it became clear that the happy couple was Byron Eugene McKinnon, and his bride.

I'll be happy to send you an image of the article, if you would like it.

RE: Pic of Archibald Sr.
Hi Staci,

I found the picture I thought I had seen of Archibald McKinnon in prison for co-habitation...but once I saw it again, I realize that my memory was in error. The picture was of Mormon men in prison, but no Archibald McKinnon. The man who my memory mistook for Archibald was actually George Q Cannon. I found the picture on Wikipedia tonight.

I can send you a screen capture image of there, if you give me your email address.

Lillian Selman Ganske
I have been to the Fraser cemetery a few times recently but haven't noticed a Ganske name so far. If you contact the cemetery and find out what section of the cemetery Lillian is buried in, I would be happy to fulfill your photo request.

Hi StaciLynn - I sent the following message to you (6/24) on George's edit feature, but those messages often fail...so I'm trying here:

Hi StaciLynn: Such a nice looking young man - thought you should add his birth and death dates. He was born 22 April 1884 at Payson, Payson, Utah and died at Raymond, Alberta on 15 July 1917. He married Lillian Olga Johnson 12 November 1912.

I also have family buried there at Temple Hill - the O'Brien family -thanks, Shirleen (history4sure)

Staci,

I'm not sure whether I'll recognize him in the photos, or not, but the only way to know is to try. If you're willing the send the pics, I'll be happy to look them over.

RE: Photos of Randolph
Staci,

Yes, those pictures were mine, and if you explore the Randolph area you see a handful more.

Your question led me to add modify my blogsite about the house a bit, and to realize I need to continue posting.

RE: Seems we're related in more than one way...
Staci,

Yes, I'd very much like a copy of Archibald in his prison uniform, if you can provide it. I seem to recall seeing one somewhere, but I cannot remember where, and it was from a distance, you could barely recognize him. I look forward to seeing the one you grandmother has.

Staci,

Thanks for the info about the memorial for the Pony Express Station. I'm going to try to find it at my first opportunity.

Yes, I'm aware of Jane McKinnon, Archibald's sister. Actually, I've ready just about every bio in the Randolph, A Look Back book. It's truly and excellent documentary of Randolph and its pioneering heritage!

Seems we're related in more than one way...
Staci,

I visited your web site, and found this:

In April of 1860, the Pony Express was created and Ras' father, Howard Egan, was assigned as the superintendent over the Utah to Nevada route.


Please note on Archibald McKinnon, Sr.'s memorial the following:

"He was then employed by Howard Egan to take charge of the mail and Pony Express Station near the Point-of-the-Mountain. Due to Indians it was quite an undertaking, but he stuck with it for three years." (Taken from Randolph, A Look Back.)

Pretty cool, I think. I'd love to find the exact location of that Point-of-the-Mountain Pony Express Station. Do you know its exact site?

RE: Excellent Picture
Staci,

Ah, yes, the size of the picture is what threw me off, it's the one on page 137 of Randolph, A Look Back.

I have the book, too, which I inherited from my father, Robert Gordon McKinnon, who was the son of Randolph Stewart McKinnon, who was the son of Archibald McKinnon, Sr., and his first wife, Mary McKay.
