Verna Bell Harris
*Verna Bell Harris
Born 3 Sep 1886 Kaysville, Davis, Utah
Blessed 1886 by her grandfather William Lauder Payne
The missionary that didn't come home 
A part of her young life:  When fifteen years old , Verna fell in love with John Jacob  (Jake) Fife, a young man from Clinton, Davis, Utah, that was going on a Mission to the Southern States.  He was set apart on 15 October 1901 and left Salt Lake City the same day.  He was doing well when he was stricken with a contagious disease and died 8 Dec 1902 - having served only half of his mission.  His remains were taken to Selma, Alabama (a distrance of about 50 miles) in a wagon.  He was interred there as the health authorities believed he had died of diphtheria and consequently would not allow the remains to be shipped to Utah.  I do not know if the remains were later removed from Alabama, or if this stone is just a monument with nothing buried beneath it.
Headstone for Verna
