Great News! Our efforts to collect funds in order to provide a new gravestone for John and Lydia Workman in the Salt Lake Cemetery have been realized with generous donations from family members along with a couple of very generous 'Anonymous' donations from one of John and Lydia's descendents. JohnÕs stone has been installed and our second stone has been ordered. It is for Fanny Workman, 2nd wife of Jacob Lindsay Workman. She is buried next to him in the Virgin, Utah cemetery and her stone will be dedicated on October 17th, 2009.
We have been in contact with Jenny Lund from the Church Historical Sites department concerning the possibility of having a stone prepared and installed in the Nauvoo cemetery for Lydia and the children who died there. What a price they paid for loving the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jenny is visiting the Nauvoo Cemetery in July 2009 to review what is currently being presented for those who are buried there so the Church can possibly implement a structured plan for the cemetery.
