  1. Hello Family~ I have just joined this site today after having looked at it many times over the years. Seems as I age I am more interested in all those who have been older than me! My mother and I spent a day in the SLC Cemetary last month and found that one of the graves in particular had aged beyond much recognition. I was able to find a photo of that marker posted in January 2001 which made our quest much easier. My family comes through Abigal and Archibals only daughter Lillian Abigal who first married to Charles Haun and had one living child Mary Ann (May). Charles and Lillian Abigail divorced. Charles married another daughter of Archibalds and had a family with her. Lillian Abigal returned home to live with her mother for several years. She met then married Phillip Gauchat and had 7 children. Their daughter Pearl married William Spafford Daniles who had 5 children. Their oldest son was William Bliss Daniels who married Mary LaVern Hawley- they had 4 children. Their oldest is Bebe Daniels Jensen who married Jay Monroe Jensen and I am the oldest of their 7 childen. I am very interested in knowing more about our family. Please share if you can. Best wishes Judith Jensen
