Name: Aaron Kartchner
Age: 28
Registration Date: 25 Jul 1892 | Residence Place: Apache, Arizona, USA

Fact or Myth : Based on an entry in the Kartchner Family Book [compiled by Sarah Palmer Collinwood, LDS FHL 929.273 149c], shortly after his father death, Aaron decided to expatriate to Canada. But due to the health of Margaret, did not make it out of Idaho. Settled in the Lewiston area of Cache Co., Utah.

Aaron and Margaret were recorded in the Midwives' Birth Register of Cache County, 1898-1904, noting / suggesting the home births of two children - a male 24 DEC 1898: Aaron Blythe (he died shortly after birth) entry 11-479. And a female 8 OCT 1900: Loretta, entry 32-884. An abstract of these county records was published in a book of same title, and this information appears on page 54.
[LDS FHL 979.212 V22c]

His blacksmith skills were noted in "A History of Lewiston" [compiled by Dr. J.M. Bernttisel, pg 70, LDS FHL 979.212/L2 H2b] quoted as written, "Aron Kartchener, the Third Ward blacksmith has operated a shop for about twenty-five years at the same stand. This time has been well taken up by the people of the ward, who loyally support him. For the last few years, his health has been poor and he has been forced to be absent from his shop.

The family farm in Lewiston was [reportedly] just down the road from the cemetery in which they were buried.

Recently discovered that the Family was living in Salt Lake City from 1909 to at least 1914. From 1909 to 1911, they were living at 752 W Jackson and he was listed as a helper for the D & R G (Denver and Rio Grande RR), In two later city directories - 1912 and 1913 - renting a house at 920 Gale St and Aaron was working for the city as a watchman. The 1910 Census noted that they were at the Jackson address and that he was an employee for the city.
