Heber & Effie Murdock “Tie The Knot”

with No Comments

Heber and Effie Murdock, my grandparents.  Taken from A Life Story of Heber Murdock by Kristine Murdock.

“As Heber grew older he began to notice girls.  He was especially interested in one beautiful young lady by the name of Effie Ophelia Morton.  She lived in nearby Midway.  They began to date.  Effie thought he was a fine looking young man.  She thought he was a great boyfriend because he brought her chocolates.  They went to many social events and dances and eventually decided they would marry.

On June 23, 1909 Heber and Effie were married in the Salt Lake Temple.  They went to Lagoon for their honeymoon.  At that time Effie’s parents lived in nearby Kaysville.”
