Young woman on the left looks like it could have been Carol Parker.

This is Pat Nixon, though.

Thank you for the update.

The good old days back when North Ogden City still had cherry trees.

Went to school with Carol and Claudia.

1954, a very good year.... Happy birthday to me...

A tougher trek back then. Love the adventure outfits.

Is that Peggy Barker great grandmother?

Behavior such as this would get you expelled from the park today 🙂

Davy Manning, related??

I do believe this lovely lady is an ancestor of my husband ... it's so good to see a photo of her!! I'm so excited to learn more about her and her life!!😊

She certainly does look older than 8th grade.

I would love a dress like this. I love how feminine women were.

Beautiful. So glad to see the Museum has pictures like this.

How lovely. She looks older than 8th grade.

The hat is wonderful

What a stunning looking girl

Christina Pay I was wondering if this was your family! How great!

John Quincy (JQ) Blaylock was my great-grandfather. His eldest son, LeRoi, my grandfather, wrote about the fire in his history, "Quite a tragedy happened to the family in August 1918. I had been in Ogden that Saturday morning and early afternoon. When I returned home I found that our home had burned and all that I owned was the bycycle I had been riding on and the clothes I was wearing. Father had gotten the piano and a few other things out, but most of our possessions were gone. Ruth (his 9 year-old sister) had been in the tub taking a bath. Someone grabbed her, wrapped her in a blanket and got her outside away from the house. She had to wear the blanket until Mother was able to borrow some clothes for her. We stayed with neighbors and friends for a couple of days then moved into a house rented from John Hall....the towns people held some benefits for Father and helped to build a new home which we moved into the spring of 1919." According to my grandpa's history the home that burned (shown in the picture) was located at 2310 N 600 E. In the photo are Zina Montgomery Blaylock and her children Stan, Ben and Gordon, the baby is probably Virginia; her husband Enos Mason Blaylock is not shown. JQ and Enos were the sons of Benjamin Franklin Blaylock and Almira Land Blaylock.

There was a Mrs. Frandsen when I went to N. Ogden in the 50s she lived on 2600 n street. Those desks are the same ones we had too, connected with some kind of track in rows. The Best Lunchroom Cooks ! Bar none!

I had a mrs frandsen for 2nd grade. I can't imagine it being her. But maybe. This was at Bates Elementary.
