Sign memorializes six Kaysville children who died in 1947 crash
Kaysville » Parents who lost three sons created a safe place for children to play.

< Previous Page

Photographs of five of the children were tracked down and a newspaper picture of David Sandall was digitally enhanced. Alex Jenkins provided the money and two Kaysville Parks and Recreation employees, Bekki Argyle and Tracy Murray, designed the sign.

Vance Garfield, Kaysville parks and recreation supervisor, who helped build the park, said the Barneses would approve of the sign, with the deaths of all six children acknowledged.

A sign that tells the story of Barnes Park is the first of 13 planned for significant spots in Kaysville. The places that officials hope to eventually mark include the Clover Club potato chip factory, the Bamberger Electric Railway and Kay’s Ward.

"I knew Emily. She loved to go to Barnes Park while they were building it," Garfield said. "She loved to watch the children run and play."
