      PHOTOS:
      1. Per email dated 13 Dec 2012 from Irene Petersen with photos of homes attached:
      "Petersens and Hales had their land on 3rd street in Ogden just below Madison avenue and also the remodeled house of Aunt Christine Petersen at 108 Adams street. if you look at the famous picture of the family sitting outdoors on that land you would see that the mountains in background match the picture I took. If you go on Google map and put 670 3rd street, Ogden, you will see that land or what is left of it. It is just above the Canal. Talk to Chris about it.
      When we took the picture of grandpa Frank's house, the owner Mr. Chournos came out and invited us to go thru the whole house and see all the changes he made in it. He has lived there for 37 years. He has taken real good care of it and Dad was real pleased. He also found a lot of dad's toys over the years: marbles and little cars. He gave us a Christmas card that was sent to your grandmother Irene in December 1945 from her friend, still in the original envelope. He also made changes on the front entrance on the peak above the front door. He is getting ready to change the front door soon as it is pretty rotten. Grandma Irene had made a curtain for that door and he still had it and he gave it to us. Still in good condition."

      Letter on file dated 31 Oct 1979 from Mrs. Lora T. Wright, Hillside, 71 Main Road, Partskewett, Newport, Gwent NP6 4UG, Wales (Telphone Caldicot 4223367) addressed to Chris Petersen: "Your letter arrived this morning, so I'll answer it before I do anything else. My parents Mr. and Mrs. Milten J. Thorne sold their home in Box Elder Co. and moved to Ogden. They bought the house across the street from Christine Petersen. They were very good friends for years. My sister June built a home on 2nd st. in the 500 block. Her oldest daughter, Roberta, used to go and help Christine with her work after her father died. Roberta was one of her favorites. Roberta grew up and married and was living in San Francisco, Cal. and had 3 small children. Christine appeared to her one night and wanted her Temple work done. My sister does not do any genealogy, so time went on and some time later she appeared to Roberta again. Again time went on and Christine appeared the 3rd time. So then Roberta telephoned home and wanted someone to get busy. I went to Salt lake City to the Genealogical Library to the head of the Danish Dep. and told him why we felt her work should be done. He answered 'that woman wants her work done. Get busy and do it'. From all we knew there was no living relatives that were LDS. I didn't read Danish. After ordering films, I had to go get a lady in her 80's with one wooden leg and take her to the Ogden Library to read the films, this went on for some time. Finally we finished the sheet. I took it to Salt Lake along with a letter explaining why we wanted the work done, along with a letter saying I knew her and she was a good moral person. They also said they didn't think we could do the work. We said that was fine as long as it gets done. About 3 to 4 months later the papers come in the mail for us to do. My husband was a sealer in the Ogden Temple, so he did the sealing. My sister who lived neighbor to Christine and her huband and I were the proxies. (I also worked in the Temple.) I'm sorry we went ahead and did the work. We didn't know any of the family were members of the Church. That is all the names we did and that was because of Christine. It must have been 8 years from the time Christine appeared until the work was done. I hope you understand why we did the work. We all loved Christine. She was a good neighbor to my parents. Lora Wright."
