Memorial Day, May 27, 2013. Randolph, Utah family gathering.

 Randolph, Rich County, Utah marker, south of Randolph.

 Randolph Cemetery tops the hill west of Randolph overlooking the town. Its where the wind always blows.

The William and Mary Brough Rex headstone has been repaired, stabilized, and now sits atop a cement base. Their six children's footstones are set beside them. All of their children are named here. 

My brother Rex stands beside the gravestone here. He and I and our spouses traveled to Randolph and Woodruff for Memorial Day. I don't recall being in Randolph on Memorial Day since prior to our parents' passing in 1982 and 1992. We had a wonderful day gathering with other Rex cousins on cemetery hill and in Cousin Flora Lee's Randolph home. A big thank you to her and her sister Nancy for all of their work promoting and accomplishing this Rex Gravestone Repair project. Thank you so very much!

The Brough Family Organization also completed (August 17, 2012) this Samuel Brough gravestone project in the Randolph Cemetery in time for Memorial Day.

First thing that morning we stopped in Woodruff, ten miles to the south, to visit the cemetery there and to drive past our Grandfather and Great Grandfather Frazier's Ranch.

My brother and I, our father, and Grandfather Frazier each attended the Woodruff Schoolhouse that stood across the highway from this sign posted in "downtown" Woodruff.

Rex and I, with our spouses, in the Woodruff Cemetery beside the Frazier/Walton
row of headstones. Note Samantha Ann Walton Witherell's broken headstone. 
A project we hope to complete before winter 2013.


  1. Love the pictures. It was a great day.

  2. It was a wonderful day. Those flags attest to the fact that the wind was blowing on both cemetery hills.

  3. Now I want to get the Brough head stone standing up
