North Ogden Historical Museum. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for posting. I didn’t realize my grandfather was VP of the canning co.

My Grandmother worked there.

My grandma worked there

Interesting information! Thankyou

James Enoch was my great grandfather. His two sons LeRoy Randall, and Leslie Randall also owned the factory. Their brother Clarence worked there too. Another brother Earl was the president. He also ran the local bank in Pleasant View. My sister Susan ran the front counter for a few years, and my grandpa, Hilmar E Erickson was the secretary and owned part of the factory. He kept books for the business. My dad, Eldred Erickson worked there on and off from the time he was young and many of my siblings did too. I used to love walking through the building with my dad or my uncles and smelling the hot tomatoes. It was fun to watch the women who worked at the conveyer belt—they’d visit with each other while peeling or sorting. They were women from the community who came to work during different fruit seasons. I remember my grandma telling me that sometimes during the fruit season after the factory had closed for the evening, she and her siblings and their spouses—there were 10 children in James Enoch’s family—would get together at the factory and pull a big truck of fruit up to the dock and the whole family would work together to can all the fruit that each of their families would need during the next winter. The factory canned many different labels—Del Monte, Western Family, etc. their own label was called Utah’s Pride. Once when my dad was serving in the Aleutian Islands during WWII, he was helping unload all the supplies that had just come in on a ship. One of the cases of tomatoes was from the factory—he said it made him so homesick. He said the tomatoes tasted like home, and he keep one of the can labels with his things. The factory has so many memories for me. Thank you for featuring it today.

What school is this?

Dad (Charles Schmalz) your grandmother Chadwick

Great old photo! Thanks!❤️

See! The 4th of March celebration!! Wonderful memories through the years

What was the 4th of March celebration? I remember it but never knew what the celebration was. Does North Ogden still celebrate it?

Thanks for posting. My great grandma, Ellen Berrett, is in this picture 💗 I don't have many pictures, or know much about my grandparents & great grandparents because my grandparents passed away when my dad was young & Ellen was in a nursing home when I was growing up in southern Utah, so I seldom saw her.

Flora Deamer is the wife of my Granduncle.

Myrtle Barker is my daughter, Marci Smith's maternal great grandmother.

Campbell’s.

Earl Chadwick was my great grandpa's brother and Una Chatelain was my great grandma's sister (I think)

Earl Chadwick was my Grandpa

Colemän Bakér all the Campbell's are Meme's family.

Great-uncle, future sister-in-law of another great-uncle, and assorted cousins of my grandfather.

RAY DANIELS is in my grandfather's brother.

Ester Orton my grand father’s sister.

Those are all good North Ogden names!

Bessie Campbell was my Grandma

I believe James Shaw (front row) was the first casualty from North Ogden in WWI. He died at age 21 in 1918 so he would have been in 8th grade in 1912.

Completing the 8th grade was considered a significant accomplishment. Many would move on to the world of work with no further education. One child missing from this photo is Verna Pickford, twin sister of Vera. Verna in her later years expressed her profound regret that she did not qualify, having been very sickly (with typhoid fever?) and missed too much school.

I might be mistaken, but I’m wonder if the first girl on the left, second row down is Sarah Ethel Randall (Grow). She graduated either that year or the next. It looks a lot like her.
