Newspaper Extracts with comments by Larry D. Christiansen

July 23, 1892 – “Runaway.”
Mr. Hans Peterson had business at the Deseret Mill on Thursday evening and went inside leaving his team untied. He had tied the lines back to the brake and thought that the team would be secure. He had scarcely stepped inside the mill before the horses started. They ran up the hill, crossed the bridge, and went flying down Second street. When they reached Main street they made a short turn to go north that the wagon was overturned and the box thrown off. As the lines were firmly tied to the brake iron, when the wagon box was on the ground the horses found it too hard to pull by the bits, and soon came to s stand still. Very little damage was done. --The Journal, July 23, 1892.

Hi Robin Forest,
Discovered your websites this morning while preparing some family material to help in a discussion with a cousin matched through Family Tree DNA's family finder testing.

Your data has helped me fill in siblings of my direct lines ancestors and will therefore help us in locating our most common ancestor!

I want to thank you for the information you are providing on your site!

You and I may be related also. I am a direct descendant of Joseph Richards and Rhoda Howe through:
Phineas Howe Richards & Wealthy Dewey
Franklin D Richards & Rhoda Harriet Foss
Note the children of Rhoda are sealed to her first husband Willard RICHARDS as she was married to Franklin for time only. This is the same for all of the wives of Willard that Frankln was asked to marry in 1856. [R.G.F.] Sarah Elizabeth Richards & Loren Jay Robinson Sr
Rhoda Richards Robinson & Joseph Peterson
Both the Richards and the Robinson family came early to the USA. Many joined the LDS and moved to Utah. Joseph Peterson was my grandfather although he died before I was born.

Do all your birth, marriage and death dates of these early ancestors come directly from the LDS records in Salt Lake City? When I did my research years ago, I only gathered data on my direct line although I did include as many sibling names as I could.

I read your site about yourself. Interesting that Alzheimer's Disease has touched your family also. My father and his brothers all suffered from AD and my oldest sister is also effected. So far I am ok.

Can you see how you and we may be related? It is probably quite a distant relationship.

Please confirm for me the source of your data so I can move ahead with out having to send away for the numerous records I would need for the VERY LARGE number of siblings my ancestors had in the early years.
