Can you provide the name of the author? I know it is John Heber Stansfield's granddaughter, but what is her name. This history was so informative to me as my grandmother, Hazel Theora (Jensen) Anderson Lundberg, was a niece of John Heber Stansfield's wife, Elvina Elvira Jensen Stansfield by Hazel's birth mother, Hilda Jensen Jensen, and Hazel's adoptive mother, Hanna Jensen Anderson was an aunt to Elvina Elvira Jensen Stansfield. Hazel was adoptive by her birth mother's (Hilda Jensen Jensen) aunt, Hanna Jensen Anderson. Thanks so much for posting this. jm
Judy Malkiewicz (granddaughter of Hazel Theora Jensen Anderson Lundberg (Mackay, Idaho)

This was written by Jack (John) Stansfield's daughter, Jessie Serena Stansfield Christensen and his granddaughter Jacqueline Joyce Christensen Larsen. They have both died, and are buried in Mount Pleasant, or Fairview Utah. This is my mother and grandmother, so you are correct that they are the authors. I remember some of the stories as a youth, and I remember my mothers endless hours researching this book. She hadn't quite finished it at the time she died, but I believe one of her sisters must have posted this online.
