Family History

I love family history, and I especially loved being able to visit the hometowns of my grandparents. I took a trip with my brother and my son over Labor Day weekend for a family reunion. We made a quick stop to visit these sites on our way home.

In 1882 Congress passed the Edmunds Act which caused LDS property, including cattle, to be confiscated. Later the law was repealed and property returned. They could not fully repay the church, so they offered up three ranches and other property. Church officials deemed the location favorable for settlement. Our family was one of the founding families in the settlement.
