More About Grandpa (Wes) Carter

Hello Dear Reader,
Here are excerpts from two newspaper articles in Grandpa (Wes) Carter’s scrapbook: “With the first half of “M” Men play completed in Utah stake (with the exception of two postponed games), Wes Carter, sharpshooting forward of Pioneer [Ward] leads the scoring with 46 points chalked up in three games. The Pioneer star has tallied an average of 15.3 points per game. His total is a few points better than Bill Mangum’s. . . “

“A great little ball player, Wes Carter, nearly upset the applecart for Fourth. Carter rustled the ball with finesse and came through at the basket with nine field goals and a foul pitch for 19 counters. He was the outstanding player of last night’s games.”

High School was over but basketball wasn’t. It seems he just got better and better.

I love the look a like meter. I tried it out very fun!

I'm glad you tried the Look Alike Meter. I find it fun too! The Relationship Finder is fun also, but you need to go to FamilySearch and get Ancestral File Number for the person you want to do. Our professor last semester did Mary Angelia York Carter. Try it if you get a chance.
