The Divided Funeral of Charles Daniel Juchau and Ann (Wagstaff) Juchau

Came across this article in the San Francsico Call (17 November 1904) that features an interesting detail of the funerals of Charles Daniel Juchau and his wife Ann (Wagstaff) Juchau--a divided funeral. Charles had been ill and dying and died unaware that his wife Ann had fallen ill and actually passed away the day before he passed away. Ann died 18 September 1904. Charles died 19 September 1904.

The following article from the San Francisco Call focuses on the fact that they belonged to separate religions and had a double, yet divided, funeral.

Land of the Sky-Blue Water

Back in 1963 Dr. Russell R. Rich, a BYU professor, reworked his master's thesis from BYU and published it as Land of the Sky-Blue Water: A History of the L.D.S. Settlement of the Bear Lake Valley. I've read this work and it is a fine little history and a great resource.

Now this resource has been made even more widely available, now that it has been digitized and published as part of FamilySearch Books: Land of the Sky-Blue Water.

Happy reading!
