I believe this headstone to be that of my Great Grandfather's 1st wife. Her name was Catherine Davies Evans. (Davies being her maiden name). She was born on 11 April 1876. She died in child birth between the 2nd and 5th of September 1897. I believe the "Baby" Evans Memorial # 150701 is that child who died either the 2nd or 3rd of September 1897. All of the Evans in this cemetery are my kin. I include here an excerpt from the Autobiography of Hector Thomas Evans, her husband:

"Death Strikes Again - A Home Broken"
"Sadness and sore grief seemingly was to be my lot, when on the 5th day of September, 1897, death snatched away from me my beloved wife and her newborn child, whom was named Leonard, although with the aid of two physicians and a midwife, blood poison had snatched her life away as also the child's, leaving me forlorn and broken hearted. Sad was the following years without this companionship, so forlorn that I sold my home, gave most of my belongings away as it were and moved away to Castle Dale, Utah, where my parents resided and where I had many friends, where I received condolences which helped to assuage my loneliness."

Also, on the 28th of January 1897 (the same year Catherine and Leonard died) Hector and Catherine's 1 year old son Oliver Austin Evans died. He located in this same cemetery at memorial #150700
