John Daniel and Norine Whiting Coggins:  John was born May 24, 1887, in Cokeville, Wyoming to John Jack and Clista Jane DeLoney Coggins.  Norine was born August 23, 1891, in Alpine, Utah Territory to John Brigham and Sarah Ann Sheppard Whiting (q.v.).  They were married March 6, 1908, and in 1910 were living in Highland with her parents (#42).  They had eight children: June Noreen, John Merlin, Arthur Bish, Fern Sarah, Arnold Fredrick and three sons who each died at birth and were unnamed.
By 1920 they had moved to Evanston, Wyoming where they remained until they passed away - Norine on April 25, 1930, and John on August 22, 1951.  John is buried in Evanston and Norine in the Alpine City Cemetery.

George Lorenzo and Mary Jones Comer:  George was born May 30, 1855, in Machen, Monmouth, Wales to George and Mary Ann Smith Comer.   His father was a member of the Nauvoo Legion.  Mary was born February 11, 1858, in Dowles, South Wales to John and Ann Griffiths Jones.  She came to America in 1866.  They were married March 30, 1882, and apparently had seven children: Mary Ann, Maud Elizabeth, John, William, Robert, Hazel and Ruben.  In 1900 they were living in Lehi on Sego Lily Street.  His patent for 120 acres south of Albert Preece was finalized March 17, 1887, the same day as Edward Harrison’s. 
In a history of the Lehi Beet Sugar Factory by Leonard J. Arrington, George's farm was named as the first place to grow sugar beets for the new factory in 1891.  That first year 1500 acres of beets were planted.  His acreage would have been on the NE corner of 9600 N., 6800 W., where the Highland South LDS Stake building now stands. 
George died December 12, 1931, in Lehi and Mary died July 30, 1958, also in Lehi and they are buried in the Lehi City Cemetery.
