PIONEER FOREBEARS HONORED

Descendants of LDS pioneers Albert Miner and Tamma Durfee Miner Curtis gathered here on Memorial Day to pay tribute to their ancestors and remember the sacrifices they made.

Miner died crossing the plains of Iowa, leaving his wife and nine children. Two of the children later died during the journey west.His wife, who re-married twice, died in 1885. A sandstone marker was placed on her grave, but during the past year the marker was destroyed during a windstorm.

Together, several family organizations had a new headstone made as a memorial to Tamma and her first husband, Albert, and her subsequent husbands, Enos Curtis and John Curtis.

During the Memorial Day ceremony, family members re-dedicated the marker, read a biographical tribute, and presented pioneer music.
