Bio and Links
Bio Photo Graduated from Univ of the Pacific, Stockton, CA, then graduated from Harvard Univ, spent one year as a Research Scholar at Cambridge Univ, England, studying Jurisprudence and Ethics under my tutor A.C. Ewing, and at Harvard I was a beta reader of Theory of Justice, a work of political philosophy and ethics, by John Rawls. In A Theory of Justice, Rawls attempts to solve the problem of distributive justice. The resultant theory is known as "Justice as Fairness". This culminated in my Cambridge Univ dissertation "Social Justice as a Legal Ideal".

While full time at Harvard, worked full time at Mass General Hospital, and before that full time at Metropolitan State Hospital in Waltham Mass.

Used George A Kelley's Personal Construct Theory and tests in my marital counselling in Florida. Other influences: Client-centered therapy by Carl Rogers and Studies of Grief in Adult Life by Colin Murray Parkes.

Was a Research Analyst in Data Mining for Montgomery Ward. Used SAS to write proprietary programs. SAS is a software suite developed by SAS Institute for advanced analytics, business intelligence, data management, and predictive analytics. Studied at the University of Chicago Business School, economic psychology, Risky Decision Making Under Uncertainty using Bayesian probability.

Retired as a Data Base Administrator. Still consider myself a Research Analyst who loves to research any and everything, accepting nothing without at least three independent sources of evidence.

RE: Location of Headstones
I guess I'm not quite sure what it is you're asking as both of the memorials I manage have burial location listed. There are photos on both with the caption, "There is no marker for this grave." You say there were markers at one time which suggests that they may have sunk over the years, which is quite possible as the burials are well over 100 years old.

As far as contacting the Sexton, you can contact the SLC City Cemetery through their mailing address: 200 N Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84103; through their email address:; through their phone: (801) 596-5020; through their fax: (801) 596-5024; or in person in their on-site office, which is open year round.

Hope this helps.

RE: Location of Headstone
I'd be happy to help, but I don't know to whom you are referring. If you can let me know, then I can get you the information you are requesting.

Alice Christina Keaton Larson
I just posted a Death Cert for Alice. It shows she died in Roy, Weber, Utah. Her last name Larsen is spelled with an e instead of an o. Soren Norman Larsen was a son of Soren Larsen who was a brother to my husband's great-great grandfathe Jens Larsen. I had a hard time finding her headstone because of the spelling. Thanks - Becky

Please see if there is a connection with Eveline Samantha Sisson Taylor, who is buried in the same cemetery. Transfer is on the way. Thanks.

My contribution was based upon Selma Cemetery District records. There were typos and errors in their on-line records and the hand written record may have been 1848. There is nothing additional to be gleaned from that site. If you would like management, let me know.

RE: Ladd/Waltz
Hi Norm,

Thank you for your permission to use the photo. I do not have their marriage certificate, I would like a copy. my email is

I just started tracing this Waltz line today. I keep a list and head down to the state archives a few times a year to collect documents if I have any Oregon connections. Then I spend the rest of the day photographing death certificates to post online for others. Are you local? if you haven't already I was going to put it on my list to collect their death certificates on my next visit and would be happy to send you copies when I do. It may be a month or so out though, but likely before the end of the year.

thanks, Erin

Hi Norman,

I was wondering if I could add the photo of Edwin John Ladd to my tree? I would give you photo credit as the source if you will allow this. Do you happen to have a photo of his wife Eva?

I am distantly related to Eva through the Waltz line. Her great grandfather George W. Waltz, founder of Georgetown, Indiana, is also my 6th great grandfather. Since I live in Oregon I took an interest to trace down the Waltz decendants who ended up here.

thanks, Erin
