Like my dad, Uncle Theo was a dairy farmer, and even though he is long gone, his barn with the painted scenes on it is still there, as well as their home which looks much smaller than I remember. I don't know if you can pick it out, but you can see Uncle Theo's brand which is a T sitting on top of a bell shape.
If you've seen "Napoleon Dynamite" you will recognize this hill between Whitney and Franklin. My Uncle 'K' used to tell me the top looked like an Indian chief, and as a child I could readily see the old chief up on top facing south with his headdress feathers flowing out behind him (Carl says "whatever..."!
The following are from the Whitney Cemetery where Grandma and Grandpa Dunkley are buried as are Uncle Dick and Aunt Marie. It kind of hit me that my favorite aunt was just two older than me when she passed away. They were the best aunt and uncle ever!! President Ezra Taft Benson, who was mother's first cousin, is buried just a few yards from them all.
The following photos were sort of sad to me. This is the home where I visited my grandparents and such a wonderful time picking raspberries, eating gooseberries, watching Grandpa milk the cows and pick apples. The house is almost unrecognizable. It was gray stucco with a flat roof which, of course, used to cause all kinds of problems with leakage! Someone later added the sloped roof, but it's all vacant now. The old apple tree is still there and the old garage.
This old sugar factory on the outskirts of Whitney is a familiar landmark.
