My Family, My mother was born October 15, 1920 in Lehi Utah and died January 3, 2000 in West Jordan Utah. My mother did not lead a charmed life. Consequently, she buried two husbands Donald C. Newman and Fred D. Palfreyman. She married Fred on June 6th 1958. Fred died from cancer on October 28 1974. After eleven years of being single she married Howard Barben on January 12, 1985.
Donald C Newman
Unfortunately it’s a little difficult for me to write anything about my father since I never got the chance to know him. I can give a little statistical information, but nothing really personal. He was born February 21, 1916 and died November 16, 1951. He served in the Armed Services, enlisted October 20 1941 at Ft. Douglas, Utah. He married my mother on August 23, 1946.
The Fredrickson family. Because I’m not sure when this picture was taken but most likely in the early 1950’s or a little before. I say that because I remember seeing grandpa Fredrickson one time when I was very young.
Jethro S Newman
This is a picture of the Jethro S Newman family. I’m not sure when this picture was taken but I’m guessing sometime in the late 1940’s. It is one of my favorite photographs of the Newman family.
Because all the members of the family represented in the pictures above have passed on to the next world. With the exception of one, Marlene E Bunkall. As far as I know she is alive and living in a care facility. My mothers people were partial founders of the town of Vernon Utah.
There was a time when my website included most of my cousins and their children. Today I don’t include them because, as with most relatives, I haven’t been in touch with them for several decades.
