That must've been awful for that famiy! To lose both children that way!

Ramie Greenwell Lindsay, Shanie N Jonathan Peterson, Kacie Greenwell Smith, did you guys ever hear this story from Grandma? It has to be her relatives with the Shaw and Jones last names.

Thanks! I fixed it.

Aww my sweet beautiful Aunt Colleen!❤️

Love this, Colleen and Dana.... what beauties❤️

That’s a treasure! Great photo!

I think that is the City and county building in the back ground is a building that looks more like downtown

That is the Broom Hotel behind them. They are standing in front of the Municipal Building.

What's the broom motel? I know that's why before my time is that the ben lomond hotel

Surely looks like it!

Holy sock hop

I was born in Ogden and then raised in the mining town of Eureka. What a nice looking family. ❤️U

I was raised in Washington terrace

The house was known for its well kept hedges !

I grew up in North Ogden just up the street from this house.

Sometimes it’s real sad to know those boys were headed for 2 World Wars. Challenges the whole family would have to go through. Plus with no one smiling means their teeth were in bad shape

Where are his other kids?

Mary Lou Petersen Rodgers what was the name of the original family that built our house up there on Washington? Wonder if anyone has any pictures of that house or family...
