Title The Prophet Moroni Dedicated the Site of the Manti Temple
Description southeast corner, and President Yoking said, "Here is the spot wher the Prophet Moroni stood and dedicated this piece of land for a Temple site and that is the reason why the location is made here, and we can't move it from this spot, and if you and I are the only persons that come here at high noon today, we will dedicate this ground.'" I am predicting that the sage of the Prophet Moroni dedicating the site for the Manit Temple is a saga that will live a long time in the hearts and memories of the people who live in Sanpete County or in the Valley of the Sanpitch! 1. Additional reference to great grandma, Betsy Bradley, (Mentioned in para. 1) can be read on page 60, para. 2, in the book. Descendants of William Henrie, by Manetta Prince Henrie, Chapter Five: Myra Elizabeth Henrie Olson: Quote: "Grandma Betsy also told Myra of how she and her three-year-old son, Hyrum, had seen a personage in white, on a white horse, mysteriously appear on the brow of the stone quarry when President Isaac Morley and others were trying to decide on a suitable place to recommend to President Brigham Young for a site for the Latter-day Saint Temple. It disappeared just as mysteriously. Everyone said they thouoht it was the Angel Moroni, but little Hyrum said, "It was the Lord." 2. Additional reference to Father Morley pointing a prophetic finger (mentioned in para. 2) is mentioned in history of "Early Manit" in the story of Mrs. A.B. Sidwell, "Reminisences of Early Days in Manti," page 3, para.2: Quote: "On the arrival of the last detachments, Father Morley being among that number, (He having been unavoidable detained) - a council was held relative to the advisablility of remaining where they were then encamped. Father Morley felt constrained to proceed about three miles southward and pointing with a prophetic finger to an eminence rising in the distance, said, "There is the termination of our journey; in close proximity to that hill, God willing, we will build our city.'" - 46 -
