    • I am attempting to contact living relatives of the brothers of James Howard JENSEN. He lived on Main Street in Tooele from approximately 1930 until Just before his death around 1980 when he sold his residence to his grandson Ronald Clyde Jensen formerly of Grantsville Utah. He was employed by Tooele Army Depot. His spouse was named Vivian. His children were Howard Jensen Jr (who left Tooele in 1970), Clyde Jensen ( who lived in Grantsville), and Bonnie Black (she married Calvin Adelle Black and resided in Tooele until her death also around 1980). One of Bonny's children married Roger Kell and I believe they still reside somewhere in the Tooele area. I am the son of Howard Jensen Jr. and Anne Laverne (Sly) Jensen. My mothers parents lived in the Vorwaller trailer court in Tooele until my grandfathers death in 1970. His name was John Freeman Sly and he married LaVelle Hoffeines ( exact spelling unknown). One of their sons was named Freeman Athes Sly (known as Sonny), and he worked as a police officer in Tooele for many years. James Howard Jensen's father was Maroni (Charles) Jensen who resided in Goshen Utah and was married to Cora (Hathaway) Jensen. I believe that one of James's brothers may have been named Max Jensen and lived in the Las Vegas area but this information is unconfirmed. If you can help me acquire any information on the siblings of James Howard Jensen please email me at stew1962@earthlink.net or postal mail at Sterling Darrell Jensen 3955 So. State Street #2P Salt Lake City, Utah 84107. If you are compiling ancestry information on the residents of Tooele county I may be able to provide you with other information acquired from my research to date. Thank you very much for any help you can provide. Sincerely S. D. Jensen 6 October 2003 

    • I am looking for additional information on William H. WILSON, my great-great grandfather, who ran a miner's store in Stockton of Tooele County, Utah. The information I have found indicates that he was born in Rapides Parish, Louisiana on 7 SEP 1841. The census shows that his father was from Scotland. His wife was Elizabeth Earley, who was born in England and traveled to America with her brother George when she was (ship manifest source) 17 and he was 15. Family sources say that George was the elder sibiling. My great-grandfather is George Albert Wilson. He joined the Army for the Spanish-American War which ended 6 mos after his enlistment. He was discharged from Angel Island (near San Francisco) CA and moved to southern California after marrying Daisey Mikesell, also from Utah. One of George's brothers married Daisey's sister. They moved to Southern California and George was the foreman in a mine. An explosion in the mine hurled a hand trolley onto some of his fellows and he injured himself by crawling under the cart and lifting it off with his back. He died a few years later from injuries suffered from this humanitarian feat. Daisey was left to raise her five sons alone...Frank, George, Heber, Willie and Kenneth. Heber Wilson is my grandfather. He is named after Heber Mikesell, Daisey's father. He lived in Colton, California all of his life. He limped from a motorcyle accident and "rolled his own." I used to watch. He was a member of the Pipe Fitters Union. My grandfather remembered visiting the Wilson's ranch in Utah when he was a boy. Our family has lost touch with the Utah Wilsons and would like to renew. My father, Kenneth, is the only male born of those 5 Wilson brothers. He is named after Heber's brother Kenneth who died at a young age in a work related accident. My dad worked on jet airplane engines for General Electric for 35 years. He has two daughters and no sons, although I used to ask for a brother. I hope there are some Wilsons from William Henry left in Tooele to contact. Thanks for your help! Catherine Poloynis.  Catherine Poloynis  5 September 2003
