I don't know who Lloyd Lund is. He is listed as being 1 2/12, so he was born around Oct/Nov 1918. I don't believe he is Pauline's son because she would have been almost 64 years old when he was born - not very likely his mom! he may be the son of either Sadie or Clyde, so Mathias and Pauline's grandson. I'll have to investigate this more. I don't have a Lloyd Lund in my database right now - mostly from other family research. I think I'll start by looking for Clyde and Sadie in the 1930 census (Mathias and Pauline both pass away before then). Perhaps Lloyd is listed with one of them...as their son. Or, I could look for Lloyd's birth certificate. Because he was born after 1911, his records aren't digitized at the Utah State Archives. I would have to go to the county (I assume Weber County, where Plain City is) and order it for $18. I think I'll check the census' first. Any other ideas?

Also, I'd like to find Farm Schedule #16 which should list more details about the Lund Farm. I'd also like to know what the "000" means - listed after Mathias' Line. Many of the other "heads" have a "000" but some have other numbers. I wonder what they mean...not sure where to find the answer to that one. I'll have to find an expert.
