Title Graveyard, Dover, Utah, In October 1974
Description Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 1881, the first service was held in the newly finished building. After the service a congregational meeting was held, at which all ttie people that helped towards the erection of the church building were thanked. Especially mentioned were The Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A., the Ladies' Presbyterian Missionary Society in Buffalo, and above all, the many friends in Manti. It seems as if the Manti Mormons really have been friends to their Presbyterian brothers. It is remarkable that at such ^n early time in Mormon history a sectarian group was able to build a fine church in an almost 99% Mormon town, which was not even very big at that time.

Some people still live who were born and raised there in the early years of this, the twentieth century, but Dover today is big sky and little cemetery. It is not even a "ghost town," but only a "site", where hopes once rose to die in despair. Why do I come at this unfrequented hour to this lonely place, where a ' hundred years ago men dug these graves for other men to vanish into? What are they to me, warm with rushing A-positive blood, these vanished, unfelt heartbeats in an impersonal ground? What can they stir in me now, these unknown people who lost their battle -99-
