While I was in Bear Lake this last May I went through newspaper clippings and whatnots that my aunt had stashed in envelopes. Actually I went through them on the car ride back to Pocatello because we didn't find them until the last minute.
I set aside all the things that I wanted copies of and good ole cousin Daniell scanned them for me. Among the scanned goodies was grandpa's official Brand Record.
I also have uncle Ollie's original brand certificate that was among grandma Hazel's things. He lived with great-grandma and grandpa Piggott.
I wasn't aware that you could read a brand. I found a couple of sites about livestock brands and how to read them that might come in handy if you have ranchers, farmers, or cowboys in your ancestry.
I am still trying to figure out how to read these two brands.
Update: Thanks to a cousin on Facebook who saw my post I now know what uncle Ollie's brand says! She said, and I quote "..it's 2 Lazy 2 P.....he always got a big kick out of telling people what his brand was. :)"
But I didn't get it till later when I said it out loud to myself....uncle Ollie had a sense of humor, didn't he?!
Before I posted this yesterday I swear I looked everywhere for record of another ancestor's brand that I knew I had, but couldn't find it anywhere. Well, I just found it! It has been living in my computer since 2007 and unfortunately I don't know what book it came from. (How embarrassing!) However I do want to post this page of "Recorded Marks and Brands" because someone else who has ancestors in Utah may benefit.
