Hi Gary,

My father, Lew Ison, came to Utah in about 1938, and his siblings followed him. This left his mother and father in Baker, Oregon, where they spent the rest of their lives.

Both sides of my father's family migrated to Oregon by the Oregon Trail. My grandfather was Grover Cleveland Ison. My grandmother's name was Lyla Madelaine Eads. Grandfather was an only child and so my father considered his fathers' cousins as his cousins also since he had no first relationships.

My family mainly are the Kings, Fullers, Isons, and Eads.

Again, thank you again for your generosity.

ValJean Ison Wright.
