George Henry "Nen" Wood was born in Lehi, Utah on December 1, 1860.
His parents called him Henry for the first years of his life.
But when his little sister, Emily, came along, she could not say Henry;
"Nen" was as close as she could get and that nickname stuck with him
through the rest of his life.
Emily Louise Hastings was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on February 20, 1860.
Note: Many sources show her as born in 1861, but the truth is that she was
born in 1860. She always said to her family that she didn’t want to appear
older than her husband who was 10 months her junior.
Nen's sister, Emily Wood was born in Virgin, Utah on December 21, 1862,
the night their parents arrived in Southern Utah.
She married George Andrew Gibson in 1883 in Virgin.
Nen and Emily were married in St. George on February 20, 1882.
Nen died near Grafton, Utah on May 7, 1898 as a result of a wreck on a young horse.
He was buried in the Grafton Cemetery.
Emily died in Kanarraville, Utah on December 1, 1909 and was also buried in the
