With that, I began the fun part. And I found Ardella Laird (Park) from Idaho.

Ardella grew up in Idaho Falls, where EMB and his family lived. She was close to the same age as his oldest son. And she graduated from Idaho Falls High School, just as my great-uncle did. In 1929 she was serving a mission for the LDS church in Independence, Missouri. After she came home, she married and became a teacher (at the school my nephews go to now). Her autobiography is available at the link above.

in Independence, Missouri, in April 1929. Ardella is the second
from the left. I'm still working on the other five.
