Per my sister Nancy Day: My mothers Birth: Pocatello, Bannock, Idaho, USA In unwed mothers home. I have searched & found no evidence of an unwed mothers home. Perhaps she went to a Relief Society midwife in Pocatello.
Larry Cragun: She was haunted with low self esteem her entire life over this. Her mother died when she was about 14 and she was raised by her grandmother Electa Elizabeth Porter in Porterville, Utah. She was not treated well as a child there, basically being shunned by the community.
