For myself and my kids, I wanted to post about some of the ancestor graves in the Ogden Cemetery. I went two years ago with some of my dad's cousins and met a few more there. As I had remembered correctly (though my wife still made me check the cemetery plot map online before we drove around), our Vaughans, and coincidentally, our Wheelwrights are on 10th Street, just to the East of the entrance on Ninth. For the big Thomas and Isabella Vaughan monument turn right down Tenth to the Vaughan marker on the left or East. You will see several other of Thomas and Isabella's family including the Burnetts who did a lot of family history.
|The large marker for Thomas (1850-1894) and Isabella (1858-1919)|
|My Great Grandfather, George Robert Vaughn, born in England (1886-1951)|
My Great Grandparents had been technically divorced although they maintained close ties with the family and each other. However, Great Grandma Ellis Rice (Ruth) Bybee Vaughn is buried up to the North on Tenth, on the West side near the Wheelwright Family graves.
My Great Grandparents Wheelwright, whom I knew pretty well, are right up by the Vaughans at the top of 10th.
|John Hyrum (1882-1963) and Mary Mourina Roman Wheelwright (1883-1972). (From 2014).|
Our serendipitous discovery was to find the Roman Family graves as we first entered the cemetery on the right side of 9th Street.
|Daniel B. Roman (1851-1924). Piedmontese Pioneer of 1855 as a young boy.|
|Gertruide, or maybe my youngest daughter.|
Now we need to find a few more Wheelwrights.
Family. It's what it's all about.
