Last Twenty Years; Sarah Ann Cashmore Kidgell

It's amazing to me of what it takes for me to suddenly realize the importance of;
  • Letters
  • Picture
  • Records of sorts  

I have in my possession.  These things were discovered in a trunk in an old family granary in Albion, Idaho. (This information comes from the  Kidgell and Cahsmore Histories that was sent to me when I first started blogging about Charles and Sarah Ann.)     I even think I have the old trunk where these precious thing were stored.  Until very recently, I had no idea the signification of these items or the trunk that sits in my guest room today! 
By doing extensive research on the Cashmore/Kidgell's I have come to realize how blessed I am to have these things in my very own possession.
 Below is the latest record of importance.  Old genealogy/temple records.  The last twenty years of Sarah Ann's life she did 'genealogy'.  She must have written a considerable amount of letters to relatives in England to get the information that is shown in the record below. (That would take twenty years!) I have many pages of this type of information.   These pages have been torn out of a Temple Record book and I have no idea what has happened to the 'other pages'.
I had to include the four pictures of Sarah Ann in different stages of her life.
I am sure when I get to the other side I will recognize Sarah Ann Cashmore Kidgell.
 Sarah Ann and my great grandmother Sarah Ann (Sadie) and her husband Edward Hepworth did most of the Proxy work in doing the ordinances.
