[Written in the Journal of Fife's stepson Orson Pratt Brown:
Cynthia Abbott Fife returned to Utah and divorced William Nicol Fife sometime before 1885. Cynthia's sister Phebe remained married to Fife until he left Arizona in 1887 to return to Ogden. Phebe Abbott Brown Fife remained with her daughter Cynthia Fife Layton in Thatcher, Arizona until her death on January 14, 1914.
Cynthia Abbott Fife died on November 14, 1910 in Ogden, Weber, Utah and was buried on 16 November 1910 in the Ogden City Cemetery.

The above photo of Cynthia Abbott Fife was found by Erold Wiscombe in Jas. F. Jakeman's book "Daughters of Utah Pioneers " Page 184.
In 2002 I found this same photo in Jakeman's "Daughters of Pioneers " 1915 edition with the identification of Diana Davis Fife. I question this because Diana Davis Fife was killed in 1884 at the age of 47. The woman in the photo looks older than 47, therefore the photo has a better chance of being Cynthia Abbott Fife. The Jakeman book edition that Erold found may be a corrected, revised edition of the Jakeman book I found.
