Please remove one of the death certificates off of Vance's site. There are two on the website.

Thank you,

John Gibson
This information was taken from a book called Stories in Stone by Colleen Fliedner

John S Gibson was born in Salt Lake City in 1866 and moved to Park City around 1877 to work as a teamster. Most likely, he hauled freight for the mines, but eventually wound up working in the Ontario mine. In early 1899, John had a streak of bad luck . First he was laid off of his job in the Ontario Mine. Then his mother died. Things started to look up when he began working again, but another blow came on June 23, 1899 when he son, Alvin, died from spinal Meningitis. John and his wife , Annie, buried Alvin near their daughter Jennett, who had died in 1892 at the age of two.
Life is full of ironies, however, and John's return to work was one of them. Four days after John buried his son, he was killed at the Ontario No. 3 Mine shaft while loading waste-filled ore cars on the cage. No one knew what caused the accident, but before the cars were hoisted to the surface, the cage suddenly shifted. John was crushed between the cage and the wall plates and died almost immediately.
Annie, John's widow, was left behind to raise their two small children. Since John had been out of work, his membership had lapsed in the A.O.U.W.. Had it been reactivated in time, the organization would have helped the widow with burial expenses and insurance. Since the couple had fallen on hard times, some of their friends or family undoubtedly came to the financial aid of the widow.
What does the pile of bridks represent? Is this a memorial to all of the Gibson family members? It would appear that John S Gibson was buried with a simple headstone in 1899 and that this unique monument was added sometime later. This touching inscription graces the monument
Like the dove to the ark
Thou hast flown to thy rest
From the wild sea of strife
To the home of the blest

I hope this is interesting information you might not have.

Thank you Raymond Family for trying to fulfill my request for a photo of my great-great grandfather's grave. I am only half surprised that there is no headstone there. He was the only member of his family (as far as I can tell) who immigrated to America and he and his wife were separated (I can't find any documentation of a divorce - in fact on her immigration papers in 1920 she lists him as deceased even though he didn't die until nearly 40 years later. I am thinking they didn't have the happiest of marriages.) so there probably wasn't anyone to pay for a headstone.

I am a Find-A-Grave volunteer for a similar reason. I have had so many people be so generous with their time and resources to help me in my family history research that I think it's the least I can do to help others with theirs! Thank you again so much for your efforts.

RE: Elizabeth Meyer
Sorry, I know that I am maddeningly confusing.

I understand there is no grave marker for Elizabeth Feller Meyer (died 1908), but you said there IS a grave marker for Elizabeth Meyer Spring (died 1937)?

She is also a relative. (the daughter of Elizabeth Feller Meyer and the mother of my great-grandmother). I would love a picture of her marker and just created a Find a Grave for her this morning.

I will just request a photo through the site and hope that it comes to you.

Thanks again for your help and sorry for the confusion.

RE: Elizabeth Meyer
She was Elizabeth Feller (married name is Meyer). Her burial site is listed as O_16_16_2W_S2. She was born 1822 and died 1908.

Her daughter was Anna Elizabeth Meyer (married names Spring, Alisbach and Gallacher). Her burial site is listed as O_16_16_2E_S2. She was born 1857 and died 1937.

Apparently they both went by "Elizabeth" and were both, technically, Elizabeth Meyer. Very confusing! Thanks for any assistance.

RE: Elizabeth Meyer
Thank you. I didn't request a photo for Elizabeth Meyer (the daughter) as I had not yet created a find a grave for her. I have since done so. If you are back over that way, I'd love a picture.

Anna Elizabeth Meyer was first married to Christian Spring in Switzerland for a very short time. They had one daughter (my Great Grandma) who Elizabeth sent to Utah with friends when she was only a year old. Years later, Elizabeth came to Utah and married someone with the last name Alisbach who died. Later in life she married Gallacher, who soon died, too. She never raised my g-grandma--she was raised by a kind stranger.

I'm not sure why, after all those years, they put Spring on her headstone. Although she didn't raise my great-grandma, Elizabeth did live with my great-grandma during the depression and my great-grandma was the informant on the death certificate.

Thank you very much for your help!

Re: Mary Newton Photo request
Hello Raymond family! I can see that you claimed my photo request for Mary Newton. I also noticed that I forgot to make a request for her husband Hyrum as well. I have since added his request also. I was wondering since you will be right their taking Mary's grave will you make sure you do Hyrum's? Thank you so much!

Holy Cow, did I forget to thank you for the grave photos? I remember getting them and I usually thank immediately. I am so sorry, have been ill for 3 weeks and can't remember what I have done (or Not). I really appreciate them; they are all fantastic.

The photo I have on her memorial is a new family marker placed in the Ogden cemetary in the family plot location: A-5-19-8. I would like to see if there is an original headstone at her burial plot in Salt Lake.
