Thorpe Reunion

  • Dscf2181
    Over the Memorial Day Weekend (May 26-29) 2006, Thorpes gathered from California, Nevada and around Utah to the official middle of nowhere (Ephraim, Utah) where many ancestors are buried. We ate together, worked in the cemetary and explored Sanpete County, where our Danish ancestors settled. The annual Scandinavian Festival provided context for the weekend.

I came across your page on the internet. I'm helpping my grandma Eleanor finish her family tree. Her mother was a Gray ( Ella B. Gray), her father was Louis Eugene Gray, his father Millard Filmore Gray and his Father Andrew Gray ( he was born March 25, 1826, his wife was Catherine (mead), born May 24, 1832. I'm not sure if hes the same one your looking for. He'd be my 4th great grand father. I hope to hear from one of you. Lisa Moon

Very interesting information....William Furlsbury Carter is my great grandfather through Sally Ann Mecham. Their son, John Edward, is my grandfather, and his son, Myron, is my father. I have visited the grave of William in the Santaquin Cemetery. My father is buried at Springville Evergreen cemetery and my grandfather Carter is in the Spanish Fork Cemetery. Thanks for all the information.

Lisa,
I am the niece of your great grandmother Ella and the cousin of your grandmother Eleanor. I really loved Ella - she was one of my favorite aunts. I was really sad when she and Clarence moved out west. She was the family photographer and every birthday, I had my picture taken with her. I didn't get to know your grandmother Eleanor as well as I would have liked, as she was one of, if not the oldest, cousin in a large family and I was the youngest (tell your grandma that I'm Laura's yougest.) I enjoyed playing with Michael and Lonnie when they did visit us in North Dakota. I have been curious lately about family history, too and was excitied to see the names mentioned in your comments. I have a second cousin (Ella's sister and my other favorite aunt Grace's grandson) that was interested in the family geneology and I will try to look him up. Last I heard, he was a writer for a newspaper in Iowa. I'll let you know if I find out anything more as I hope you will, too. One thing I would like to know is where in England the family came from. Grandma Gray was Bohemian (Czech)and quite the character, but I would like to know the place of origin of the Grsay side.
Take care and give your Grandma my best wishes.

I think the posts are messed up. I am the one who posted that I am a descendant of William F Carter, John Edward Carter, John Furlsbury Carter and Richard Lyle Carter.

Not Linwood Carter.

Thats okay though
