Andrew Jenson, Encyclopedic History of the Church…
BENCH CREEK BRANCH, Wasatch Stake, Wasatch Co., Utah, consisted of a few families of Latter-day Saints residing along the Provo River in the south end of Rhodes Valley, or Kamas Prairie. These families were [p.57] organized into a branch of the Church known as the Bench Creek Branch in 1897 with John Moon as presiding Elder. He was succeeded in 1898 by Peter Duncan, and the branch had 110 members, including 32 children, at the end of 1900. Soon after that the branch ceased to exist. In 1930 the saints in the locality belonged to the Woodland Ward of the Summit Stake.

From the Post-Mortem letter:
Veterans Administration Hospital
Salt Lake City 13, Utah
June 23, 1959
File Reference: 5252/111A

“ ...I should like also to tell you of our appreciation to you for permitting us to perform a post-mortem examination in order that we might learn more about the causes incident to his death. Our examination revealed that Mr. Parry had severe pulmonary emphysema and chronic infection of the air passages of his lungs. In addition, his heart had been affected by his longstanding lung disease and he had chronic heart failure. The combination of the lung infection and the heart failure was responsible for his death. We found no evidence of any other significant disease....”

Very Truly Yours,

Jerome E. Cohn, M.D.
