|Bio and Links|
A lifelong resident of Salt Lake County, I was born at 5:57 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20, 1992 at Holy Cross Hospital (now Salt Lake Regional Medical Center) in the East Central neighborhood of Salt Lake City.
Raised in Millcreek, West Valley City, Murray, Cottonwood Heights, and Kearns, a lifelong dream came to frution on May 12, 2014, when I moved to Salt Lake City. I presently reside in the Liberty Wells neighborhood — a place my ancestors first made their home in 1914.
Family history research led me to discover Find A Grave one day back in August of 2006. I subsequently joined and have greatly enjoyed contributing here since. I feel honored and privileged to be able to help document and memorialize the lives of those who came before me as well as preserve their information for future generations. It is truly a labor of love for me.
When not doing genealogical research, I'm deeply involved in Democratic politics at the local and state levels, serving as a state delegate, county delegate, precinct secretary, and Utah Stonewall Democrats board member. I also enjoy reading, writing (I currently serve as a reporter for Utah Political Capitol and am a contributing writer at KSL.com, the Deseret News, and Building Salt Lake), and listening to '70s and '80s music.
I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, belonging to the Wells Ward, Salt Lake Granite Stake (formerly the Belvedere Ward, Salt Lake Wells Stake; and Jordan North Second Ward, Salt Lake Jordan North Stake).
Please let me know of any corrections or additions that need to be made to one of my memorials.
As for transfers, I don't subscribe to the four-generation rule. If I've added a memorial for one of your relatives or friends and you would like to manage it, please let me know and I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you.
If you have time, please leave flowers for my grandfather, Brent Curtis; my grandfather, Norm Gibbons; my grandmother, Gae Gibbons; my aunt, Jane Brandenburg; my uncle, Marc Curtis; and my cousin, Clair Harward
Some ancestors had a magic way
Of leaving trails to climb each day
They had a goal and climbed with care
Faith gave them dreams and a home most fair
So from a land across the sea
They came to a land most promised to be
And lived their lives happy and free
They gave us freedom and a heritage great
Anchoring our souls from a cruel fate
Great thrills and joys their stories bring
Of the lives they lived and the songs they sing
God grant that I may useful be
And meet these dear ones in Eternity

Thank you for taking the photograh of Mary Ann (May) Snow's headstone. When I couldn't find where they were buried right off, it was quite unsettling, but now I have proof where they are. Thanks again.

|Esther Kinder||Thank You|
Thanks again dear friend.
|Kim Hancey Duffy||thank you for making a connection|
Thank you creating the listing for Genevieve Murphy Rich and for adding her obit to it. I am researching my house for the National Register and am searching for the individuals who lived here, of whom Mrs. Rich was one. Because you added this obit to the listing, I was able to read it and find out that one of Mrs. Rich's daughters is an old friend of mine. We have reconnected as a result, and I have shown her my home where her mother lived as a child. And she has been able to provide photos and more background for my research. If you hadn't created this listing, and added the obit to it, none of this would have happened. Thank you so much.
