| Frank Bletzacker and Alice Hepworth|
10 October 1894
Frank was five years older than Alice and was born in Ohio to German parents.
I have no idea when Frank came to Salt Lake City or why. The only information I have is a paper trail I have researched and pictures sent to me years ago from a second cousin who is deceased. Also, found pictures on Ancestry.com from another tree which is a benefit of having a public personal tree on Ancestry.com. Always grateful to people who share pictures.
As stated on US Census Frank is an Engineer by profession both a civil engineer and mechanical.
They were the parents of four boys.
The first one was named Elmo;born in 1897 in Salt Lake City and sadly died in 1898 at nine months in Albion, Idaho of Cholera Infantum. My thinking is Frank and Alice were visiting a family member of Alice's who lived in Albion when the baby got sick. This type of sickness can be brought on by hot weather, (it was August) causing vomiting, profuse watery diarrhea; fever. Can you imagine the anguish this young married couple went through!
Elmo was buried in Salt Lake City.
By 1910 the Bletzacker family is back in Salt Lake City.
