My great grandfather Stephen Davis Chipman

Contributor: Anne Ryan Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

He was the last surviving child in the Stephen Chipman family and died August 24, 1951, one year before I was born. He lived some of his later years (1947-1948) in Salt Lake City with my Grandpa, Auburn (his son) and my grandma (Marguerite) and my mother remembered her grandpa staying with them. During his marriage he was called to serve a mission in Australia (November 1887 to May 1890). My grandfather's unusual name (Auburn) comes from a city in Australia where he served his mission. His daughter Berneice wrote, "Father has been a man of integrity, a wortty citizen, a kind loving husband and father and always maintained principles of right and honor in all his dealings."
