I love the early homesteads and the history with them

Hope Scott and Jackie Alvord see this. My father, Norman J Shaw and his family lived down the lane. Whenever we stayed at Grandpa Albert and Rosene Shaw’s farm the Alvord place was as far as we could ever venture out to.

Marianne your farm house

Love that home.

What a wonderful picture

I used to go visiting teaching to Rosene Shaw. Great family. Wasn't there another brother married to Diane?

I love seeing these old pictures,

Love these old photos.

Lewis Randall was my great uncle. If you look at the names you realize most of them were relatives of one another. With five Chadwick daughters, Chadwicks and Randalls seem to have been related to everyone in north Ogden

Some of the old gloves visible in the photo are amazing. I have one that was handed down from my grandfather . He was hit in the head by a baseball and died from the injury.
