The Mystery

  • Taylorsville, Utah Territory

My great grandmother, Estella ("Stella") Jensen Weech, was born in Utah two years before it became a state. She records her birth date as 14 Jun 1894, but there is no birth certificate because no records of that nature were kept in Utah until 1905. That's made more unfortunate by the fact that she was adopted, apparently in an "under the table" fashion as there don't seem to be any records documenting the event. A record of her LDS blessing from 2 Aug 1894 (Murray, Utah) states that she was born in Taylorsville (next to Murray), but did her parents really know?
