Frederick "Fred" Carlson Syrett and Sarah Delila Bunce (2G grandparents)

Owned a flour shop in Panguitch, Utah

Fred Carlson and Sarah Delila Bunce Syrett flour mill, 33 South 200 East. It later became a fix-it shop. After that it became a private dwelling.

In 1914 the Hatchtown Dam broke and washed away their home. They took
their children and left. They were able to purchase another home not far from there, but in town.
The children especially liked it because they were able to go to school. Sarah...
