Lavina Hughes married Professor Alma N. Sorensen, Mary Ann Hughes married Mormon Delbert Bird, often refered to as M. D. Bird. He was also bishop of the Mendon Ward for seventeen years (1903-1920). Edith and Gladys seem to have left Mendon and made lives outside of the community with their husbands. My dear friend Artice Bird, daughter of Mary Ann provided me with a wealth of information on Mendon and who is who and how it all fit together. We lived nearby for many years and made ourselves comfortable in her lovely home, the same home her father built for his family. She knew aunt Lavina H. Sorensen and could and would tell of personal traits that would be lost to time had not she took the time to share what she knew of lives lived long, and as in the case of Lavina, those cut short.
