East coast to West coast came together here in 1896. A Thomas Jones seems to have arrived before 1890, Salt Lake City, where his 9th child was born 17 May, 1890. He is recorded as being the son of Thomas and Mary Jones of Cardiff, Wales where his prior 8 children were born starting 1876. He died 11 October 1909 Salt Lake City, and is buried Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Ten children total were born. There must be a lot of descendants beginning here. Any folks connected?
