I'd love your help to collect addresses of our distant ancestors.  See if the address you find in family histories are here or not.  If not, let me know.   April Oaks 801-205-5555 

Thorup Addresses








John T Thorup

John T Thorup 900 E home.jpg

723 S 900 E, SLC, UT - home address.  He built his store next to his home (both pictured above).   The home is still there, the store is not.  Tax records show the home was built in 1890.  His daughter's history says she grew up there. 

72 S Main Street, SLC, UT - this is the address of the Thirteenth Ward Store where he was general manager.  

Smith Addresses


This was Hyrum J Smith's home.  He was an incredible gardener, and had gorgeous tulip gardens.  This house may have been on Hampton Avenue between 3rd and 4th East in Salt Lake (just west of Liberty Park).  I need to confirm.  He paid $750 for the house, and $250 for the land.    


In time I'll add more addresses here.

Baird/Bair Addresses

John Bair had a house in Nauvoo - six blocks north of the Nauvoo Temple.
There is now a monument for John Bair in Richmond Park, in Richmond, UT honoring him.

Thomson Addresses

In time, I'll add addresses here.

Park Addresses

My mom (Leslie Park Thorup) and Aunt Bonnie took pictures and got addresses of a lot of places in Idaho.  They have a recording of my grandpa, Bill Park talking about them.  I'll add that here in time.  

Laird Addresses

Edward Laird Home 840 E 21st South.jpg

Edward and Valeria Laird properties:

Mountain Dell Property - Edward Laird found some silver ore in Park City where the Silver King is (The Silver King is near the Bonanza Lift at Park City, I believe).   He sold his claim for $1500, and bought property in Parley's Canyon near or where Mountain Dell Golf Course is.   Specifically, a history I read says their property is where Washington Park is.  


840 East Twelfth South (later becoming 840 East 2100 South) - This is the picture above.  Later in life, Edward and Valeria sold their property in Mountain Dell and moved here.  He also owned 817 and 820 East on that block where other family members lived.  


One of his daughter's married Charles Rich Snelgrove (as in Snelgove Ice Cream).  The year before Valeria Flint Laird died, she allowed Charles and Fidella to open their ice cream business up at one of their properties at 1055 E. 2100 South (Edward made a lot of money as a sheep farmer, then in real estate).  This is very close to where the tall Sugarhouse monument is.  Eventually after 1840, the houses at 820 and 840 E were razed to make room for the Snelgrove Factory and main store with the iconic giant spinning ice-cream cone sign.
