    • Your tombstone stands neglected and alone. The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care. It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist. You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our heart contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=38398682 Find A Grave Memorial# 38398682 Joseph Tanner Birth: Jul. 21, 1844, England Death: Apr. 19, 1923, Layton, Davis County, Utah Burial: Clover Cemetery , Rush Valley, Tooele County, Utah, USA Spouse: Mary Jane Jordan Tanner (1850 - 1921) Mary Jane Jordan Tanner Birth: Jan. 8, 1850 Abbots Bromley, England Death: Feb. 2, 1921 Clover, Tooele County Utah Burial: 2 FEB 1921 Clover City Cemetery, Clover, Tooele Co., Utah Children Asael Cato TANNER Born:: 31 OCT 1890 in Utah Cleo Clement TANNER Born: 15 NOV 1892 in Clover, Tooele, Utah Although death certificate shows birth as 8 Jan 1850, family census as of night of 29 Mar 1851 in St. John -Alverstoke, Hampshire, England indicates she is only 3 months old https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/SGB3-SRQ Spouse: Joseph Tanner (1844 - 1923)* -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mary Jane Jordan Tanner Family links: PARENTS: James Francis Jordan (1824 - 1900) FATHER Birth: Feb. 7, 1824, Hampshire, England Death: Aug., 1900, Tooele County, Utah, USA Burial: Clover Cemetery Rush Valley, Tooele County, Utah, USA
