Note: From findagrave member D. L. Melville.
"... I noticed his obituary has the birth place of Woodrow, Utah which conflicts with the birth place of Abraham, Utah in an autobiography that I have that was written by Gordon. I realize both of these areas are rural in Millard County and I'm not sure that it matters, but thought I would point that out for future reference. I'm sure this will be a problem in Family Tree, etc etc." ...
