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.

Very neat info. I have visited his grave in Santaquin, Utah and my son Carter is obviously named after him. I am a descendant from his marriage to Roxena Meacham through Marybah, Irena, then my grandfather Clarence Edwards.

My Mother in Law-Clella Joyce McBride, is a great grand daughter of William Fursbury Carter and Sarah York, a grand daughter to Edwin Lavan Carter and Betsey Larson and a daughter to: Bertha Almira Carter McBride and Ether McBride. I attended a Grafton Utah reunion for the Wood side of my family and was surprized to see a picture of William Fursbury Carter. A Mr. Manning from Roosevlet Utah has been doing alot of research on the early Mormon Blacksmiths. He is trying to find more info on the Mormon Puzzle hobbles. William was an early blacksmith who stayed in Cainsville to help outfit the Saints on their trip west. I would like to obtain more history of this time. Can't tell you how taken back I was to see William Carter's picture and some information on him, in Grafton.
