To celebrate the fourth of July, mom and I did some pruning and weeding, enjoyed lunch at Sizzler and then we took a nice air conditioned drive to the Clarkston Cemetery.
Charles Shumway Jr. (son of Charles Shumway Sr. and Louisa Minnerly Shumway--his second of four wives) married sisters Sarah Jardine and Agnes Jardine. Sarah named her oldest daughter Agnes after her sister (and her sister Agnes named her first daughter Sarah). Agnes' oldest son was William Shumway Fife. William's daughter is Norda Agnes Fife Emmett (pictured above). She is Chad Fife Emmett's mom.
Sarah and Agnes Jardine were the daughters of Agnes Beveridge and John Jardine. They joined the Mormon Church in Scotland and emigrated to the US in 1855.
