Albert W. Kirkham was born in Lehi, Utah on Feb. 16, 1877 and there he married Rachel Gray. They came to Raymond in 1902 with their two daughters. After 5 years they returned to Utah but returned in 1911.

Bert was employed at the Raymond Mercantile for many years. When he became ill and couldn't do heavy work he took up knitting. Every month he wrote 30 to 40 letters to cheer up soldiers, friends and family.

Bert and Rachel adopted an orphan girl, Vivian Shephard and raised her to adulthood.
