    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: According to Thomas Lythgoe, son of Leo, George was "meticulously clean and neat." He apparently left a wife and four children in England when he migrated to America. His wife was "sloppy". Somehow he got out of that marriage and married Catherine Harrop.

      BURIAL: PLAC S.L. City Cemetery, Salt Lake City, UT. Headstone is reportedly at position H-3-8-4-E (whatever that means). We were mistakenly told H-5 and spent several minutes searching in vain. Next time we'll try H-3.

      From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996; Records of Dennis Leo Lythgoe.
