Title Court Case
Description COURT CASE David Rosier Moroni, Utah First Place Anecdote Usually when people of our times think of pioneers, we remember the sad and dramatic things that happened to them, along with the sacrifices they made. But not all of their ex- istence was sad. Once a Fountain Green man and his six wives were summoned to Provo to face charges of polygamy. When they arrived at Provo, the man sent his wives into the cemetery to rest in the shade of the trees while he went on into town. In court the judge asked him if the charges stating he had six wives were true, when he answered that the accusations were based on truth, the judge wanted to know where the wives were. "In the cemetery," the man replied, "every one." The judge, taking pity on the man, dropped all charges against him and let him go free. Reference: Family stories of Deneice Guymon Blackham. INGENUITY Eleanor P. Madsen Ephraim, Utah Second Place Anecdote It was a bright May morning in the late 1800's. Dan left the house early with a bucket in his hand and a determined look on his face. 2
