Tid Bit about Grandpa Thomas Evan Jeremy's Tree
I found this not in my mother's things about the tree.  I previously shared the above link which mentioned this tree in the newspaper.
 At 6th W. and So Temple on the old Saltair Railroad, stands the famous Jeremy Cottonwood.  It was planted by Thomas Jeremy in 1852.  It grew and seemed to have served its purpose, and finally was neglected.  Sara Jeremy Anderson of S.L. County board had spoken of the tree in tender amusing terms telling of the girls and boys who came there to play, and each of the tramps who came there to get warm.  Although it was greatly damaged by repeated fires, the old Jeremy Tree reaches 115 feet into the sky, and spreads its great branches almost that far across.  The tree warden of S.L. took it in his care,  doctored and pruned it, an it is now being protected as an historic tree.

Picture of John and Mary Wardle

This is from Family Search.  I suggest going there directly and reviewing,  It was contributed by Joe Anderson.  I had never before seen a picture of John and Mary Wardle so I had to share this.

Dianna Wardle (my sister) and Mark Norman

Dianna (my sister) waited for Mark while he was on his mission.  I came across this letter written to my mother from Taiwan.  It was sent by Elder Norman.  It is a very nice letter, and expressed much sentiment and gratitude for Dianna.  (I am not sharing the contents of the letter, which would be for them to choice if they want to share.)
Many young women commit to wait; very few actually do.  My wife waited, but when her boyfriend returned home, he had grown out of love and broke her heart.  Dianna waited, and married her missionary.
Dianna had big plans, and put together many things in anticipation of her marriage.  Most of the two years Mark was gone, she was putting things away, dishes, linens, silverware.  By the time they were married, she had everything she needed to run a home.

Grandfather Charles James Wright: Boiler Foreman

My Grandfather worked at the U&I Sugar Factory in Lincoln, Idaho; or on Lincoln Street in Idaho Falls Idaho.  He lived in company housing, having transferred to Lincoln from Lehi, Utah.  He was the foreman of the boiler.  The sugar factory is mostly knocked down, but when I visited this last time, it occurred to me that the chimney stack is still standing, and that is where Grandfather spent most of his time.
