Jill, great to meet you too!

Sophia, it's no coincidence that there's an Ogden, Utah as well as its being a place name in the Chicago area. William Butler Ogden was the first mayor of the city of Chicago back in the early to mid-1800s, and he was a big proponent and investor in laying train lines out to the Pacific. The train line went through Ogden, Utah.

Sophia Hi Frederick!
