Hello, my name is Heather.
Recently my grandparents passed away. This spring, while cleaning out their home I found a small box of documents & photos of a friend of theirs. Her name is FLORA DUNSWORTH LARGE. My aunt told me that when Flora had passed away she had no family left because she out lived them all. So my grandparents helped with her funeral arrangements and cleaning of her belongings. They ended up with this box. I thought I could post some of the info on the Dunsworth & Large site before I turn it over to the Family History Center in Salt Lake City,UT.
