Info on Earl Ewing and Anna (Jenkins?) Ewing -Corinne, 1869-

Posted: 10 Jul 2014 7:26PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Ewing, Jenkins
My ancestors Earl Adelbert Ewing and Anna Jenkins both worked on the transcontinental railroad for Union Pacific, were married in Ogden in 1868, had their daughter Ella in a cave in Promontory less than a month before the Golden Spike, and thereafter moved to Corinne. Earl died in an accident in 1871, and I have no information on his wife Anna until her death in 1900 in Nebraska. My family stories say that Anna's last name was Jenkins, and that she was a camp cook for Union Pacific as it moved West building the transcontinental railroad. After her husband Earl died in 1871, the story goes that she ran a cafe in Corinne, UT but had too much difficulty and moved back near her husband's family in Nebraska. I have searched online records and found nothing on Anna. It's possible that her last name is wrong, who knows. Does anyone have local info on Corinne after 1869, or UP railroad workers prior?
