Misc. Notes
Kate Price GRIGGS was born in Salt Lake City on 26 Jan 1894 after the Manifesto. She always said she and the 2 brothers born after her were the "bastards in the family", since Thomas would not give up the 2nd wife. You had to know Aunt Kate to know how funny it was to hear her say this. We all knew her as very prim, proper, and staunchly LDS. In her earlier years and most of her married life she was a wild and raucous person given to much drink and other frivolities. It would "shock" a lot of us to hear our very proper Aunt Kate call herself a bastard. Anyway she married Edward Archibald HARTMAN in Alta, Uinta (now Teton), Wyoming on 30 Apr 1913. He was born 13 Feb 1889 in Cheyenne, Laramie, Wyoming, and he died 4 May 1936 in Driggs, Teton,
daho, "apparently" of a suicide. Even Aunt Kate in later years admitted it was all very suspicious and most likely he was murdered by their ranch foreman. As I said she was a pretty wild and rough person at one time and not realizing then that the foreman might have killed her husband she ended up marrying the foreman!!!! That marriage was on 27 May 1937 in Dillon, Beaverhead, Montana, and his name was Herbert Owen WHITNEY. He was born 25 Apr 1885 in Paris, Seine, France, and he died in Salt Lake City on 3 Mar 1945. He was good to Kate and good to her family, including my mother while she was going to nursing training, but there is still a cloud about the whole mess. Aunt Kate said she would probably get to the other side and find out "Bert" was guilty. She died in Salt Lake on 22 Feb 1982.
