About Aaron Kartchner

1891: Marriage Certificate: #31259 [Vol. C, pg 38], "wife was recorded as Maggy" witnessed by Orrin Kartchner and M.E. Kartchner, joined by John Hunt, Minister of the Gospel in the home of his father, William Kartchner. Recorded 09 Jan 1891 with Clerk of the Probate Court for the county of Apache, AZ.

Fact or Myth : Based on an entry in the Kartchner Family Book [compiled by Sarah Palmer Collinwood, LDS FHL 929.273 K149c], shortly after his father's death, Aaron decided to expatriate to Canada. But due to the health of Margaret, did not make it out of Idaho. Settled in the Lewiston area of Cache Co., Utah.

Aaron and Margaret were recorded in the Midwives' Birth Register of Cache County, 1898-1904, noting / suggesting the home births of two children - a male 24 December 1898: Aaron Blythe (he died shortly after birth) entry 11-479. And a female 8 Ocotober 1900: Loretta, entry 32-884. An abstract of these county records was published in a book of same title, and this information appears on page 54. [LDS FHL 979.212 V22c]

His blacksmith skills were noted in "A History of Lewiston" [compiled by Dr. J.M. Bernttisel, pg 70, LDS FHL 979.212/L2 H2b] quoted as written, "Aaron Kartchener, the Third Ward blacksmith has operated a shop for about twenty-five years at the same stand. This time has been well taken up by the people of the ward, who loyally support him. For the last few years, his health has been poor and he has been forced to be absent from his shop. The family farm in Lewiston was [reportedly] just down the road from the cemetery in which they were buried.

Children: Alvin E. 1891-1976, Eleanor A. 1893-1894, Marteena [Holliday/Hope/Hock/Wade] 1896-1981, Aaron B. 1898-1898, Loretta [Blair] 1900-1991, Harold L. 1903-1903

Two simple death notices ran in local newspaper:

Wednesday, 7 Jun 1922, in "The Journal" [p. 3] Logan Crty, Cache County, Utah in the "Local News" column was the following: "Mr. Aaron Kartchner, 58 years of age of Lewiston, died yesterday."

Saturday, 10 Jun 1922, in "The Journal" [p. 9] in the "Lewiston Society" column this was expanded to:

"Mr. Aaron Kartchner died at his home Tuesday morning after suffering several months from diabetes."
