Bio and Links
Bio Photo I found an interest in Find A Grave while searching for my fathers sister that died at birth. I found the "Randlett" Cemetery in Duchesne County, However, I didn't find her headstone, a lot of the head stones are crumbled or just a wooden cross in front of the grave, with no writing. It was very disappointing.

Likewise with the Cedarview Cemetery, not to many headstones were recorded. As that is where a lot of my family are buried I decided to start there. In doing research while entering Headstone pictures, it has helped me to feel closer to them and learn about there lives. Find a Grave has been linked with Ancestry.com, so it is a great help with Genealogy.

Willard Cemetery
Hi Peggy - I wonder if you would put a note on your memorials for the Harrisons, David and Edwin Chandler Harrison that each of them are CENOTAPH memorials.
The baby, David, was buried in Pocatello, but Mrs. Chandler never told me where, before she died - since he was stillborn, it may have even been on their property - but I still do not know where their son, Edwin Chandler Harrison, is - they just asked if they could place that memorial stone - neither son is buried at Willard. Thanks, Shirleen

Thank you!
Dear Peggy,
Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for our family and friends. You have touched so many people's lives with all of the information and priceless pictures submitted with love and such dedication to preserving their memories. I know this was a project you began several years ago. It has become so much more than a project. Our Perry - Van family has been blessed through your efforts to create such beautiful and informative memorials. I am sure our other family members have found helpful information, too. I hope that you continue to find enjoyment in what you are doing. You are truly appreciated and loved.
Your sister, Denise.

RE: Hi Peggy,
Hi again! :) Uncle Jim was cremated and his remains were placed in an above ground niche at Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Hi Peggy,
Not sure if you remember me or not. I was Jim's niece, John's step daughter. I hope that you don't mind, I came across your memorial for uncle Jim, so I posted a couple additional photos.

Best wishes,
Amy

FYI: I added a grave photo to his site 98506994, and you have him listed with the last name of Clark instead of Clarke, and I just didn't want there to be any confusion. Thanks.

RE: Margaret Murray Van
Wanzitz was most likely her indian last name.

Here is another story I have on her that mentions wanzitz. I also found several in the indian rolls of the ute reservation.


As we were growing up, our mother would tell the story of 'Grandmother Rachel' to keep in our history, the truth.

Grandmother Rachel was a young girl (age 9-11) when the Ute indians were moved from around Utah to the reservation in Uintah County. It is told that Rachel was with her Uncle ,Jimmy Wanzits and another man. Either she was a burden to them or they were in need so the men stopped at the farm of Ruben Allred and his family. At that time Rachel was traded for 2 horses. Rachel stayed with the Allred family in what ever capacity she served and the men went on to the reservation. The Allred family raised Rachel and educated her along with their children. I have picked up information during the family research and I believe Rachel was actually Jimmy's daughter. There was no reason for him to have a young niece with him at that time. Jimmy had many, many children and most did not survive to adulthood. Rachel would have been better off with the Allred family than on the reservation with Jimmy and his wife. Rachel was my 'Great, Great Grandmother. None of us will ever lose the fascination of hearing and telling her story.

gravestone photos
Peggy - thanks so much for the photos - I have noticed that yours are very nice quality & I appreciate all your help!

History is so important, that it is so great to be as accurate as possible. If I can help you with any pedigree research, let me know (I'm not so good at photos!) ~ Shirleen
