Joseph Parry Saunders was killed in the explosion at Winter Quarters #4, a coal mine at Scofield, Utah. 200 men died in that disaster. Whole family names were wiped out. It was unimaginable, even by todays standards.

Hi Bill, I found this memorial for Joseph Parry Thomas in the Scofield Cemetery. This is the situation.

Joseph was originally buried in Scofield, UT and on November 25, 1933, members of his family had the Wheeler Mortuary of Springville re-inter the remains of four of the family from Scofield to the Spanish Fork Cemetery. Joseph was one of those four, along with his father, Fredrick Edwards Thomas, Joseph's son, Joseph Perry, 18 years old, both of whom were killed in the Scofield mine disaster on May 1, 1900; and Joseph's young daughter, Elizabeth Ann, who was one month old when she died.

Fredrick Thomas is my second great grandfather.

This is Joseph's memorial, now in the Spanish Fork Cemetery: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=thomas&GSfn=joseph&GSiman=1&GScid=77440&GRid=12496143&
