My name is Mary Ann Whitehead Overson and this blog is dedicated to all the amazing men and women who came before me: my ancestors. I also want to acknowledge my father, Armand Toyn Whitehead, who is the person responsible for a lot of the content in this blog; my dad has spent countless hours collecting and preserving photos and histories, and preserving them on the computer so that they can be handed down for generations. Thank you, Dad!

FINAL UPDATE: Adolphus Renny Whitehead Heastone Project

AUGUST 26, 2013 - Leslie V. Cook has announced that the headstones are done!  He sent some photos to show the finished product:

Front of Headstones

Back of Headstones
I would just like to express my gratitude to everyone who participated in this project, but especially give a shout-out to Leslie Cook who started it all, and did so much work to coordinate funds and order the headstones, etc.  Now we can, for generations to come, be able to have a tangible reminder of the courage and sacrifice of this beloved pioneer ancestor.

We're hoping to plan a small reunion  in St. George sometime soon so that we can dedicate these memorials and have a chance to meet each other.  I will pass on this info to you as soon as I know the date, etc.
