I just returned from a trip to Tooele, UT to visit family and have come back with lots
of pictures. I have several pictures of Kathryn Eloise Core Wrathall, wife of Fred.
Eloise (that's what she was called by her friends), was a very close friend of both my
maternal Grandmother Florine Eliason Crawford and her sister Glenn Eliason Jensen, my
great aunt. Eloise went to school with my Aunt and I have sent you photos my Aunt kept
in an album (taken for the most part in the 1920s) of Eloise, including some pictures of
her wedding (my aunt was the maid of honor). As a young girl, my Mother knew Eloise's
son Robert William (they called him Bobby Bill).
