Knight Family Home in Colesville NY

The Knight Family Home is being restored in Colesville NY.  A dedication is scheduled for June 2, 2012  4:30pm
The location of the farmhouse is:
That would be on the west side of Hwy. 233 a half mile south of the bridge from the village of Ninevah. (Not far from I-88, but there is no exit right there. The closest exit is Exit 6 to Ninevah.)

Here are some photos: 

Joseph Knight Sr. is one of my 4th Great Grandparents. Colesville was the first official branch of the Church, organized in October 1830. They moved together to Ohio and then to Missouri.

1940 census online now

The 1940 Census for Utah came online today so I looked up Dad but he wasn't in the index.  I had to search under his dad (Ross) to find him spelled as Lloyde with his sisters Collen and Leoa.   And his dad listed from Massachusetts. But after navigating those discrepancies, here is the picture:

Katie's in the Marching Band

Katie is one of four 6th graders invited to join the marching band for this year. Tomorrow is her first competition. She'll be wearing this nice uniform. Seems great for Pacifica Fog Fest in September. But Vallejo in May will be very hot. Leaving at 6am, getting back at 7pm.

May Family Dinner

Hey everyone,
I just wanted to let you all know that we are in charge of the family dinner in may. We had originally planned for it to be on May 20th but I am wondering if we could change it to the following sunday (May 27)? We will be having dinner at our house (2983 Gazelle Rd West Valley UT) at about 5:30pm. Please let me know if there are any problems with this. Also, please let me know if you will be coming so I know how many to plan for!

Grandpa Maynes last job

I uploaded a story from Grandma Maynes about her husband Jack, our grandfather.  In it she mentioned that his last job was 'taking census for the US government.'. He died July 10, 1940  age 57.

The 1940 Census images were released on April 2, 2012 and are now being indexed. Here is the status.

This picture shows a page from the census where John A Maynes was the enumerator. The date is April 15, 1940.  He canvassed his home town of Butlerville including on this page his own family.   Very nice handwriting.  There are 18 pages for Butlerville at about 40 names per page.

Thirteen people including a daughter-in-law and the first grandson.  Even more impressive if you've ever seen the home. Address: Wasatch Blvd south of 7000.  Two rooms and an enclosed porch with a nearby ditch for running water.
