Title Requiem for a Sanpete Pioneer
Description to the ground. Later in the season, the rubble was hauled away and there existed only a pleasant spot under sone mature leafy trees to mark the original old home site. A passerby would see that a house had once stood there, but how could anyone know the joys and the sorrows of those who called it home in bygone days. In Sanpete, as in all places of the earth, there is a season for all things, a tine to live and a tine to die. The cycle had completed itself for the original family, and would, continue on through the generations into the eons of tiae on this earth. Little does the modern visitor seeing the spot reflect on the place, and few who pass that way now stop to think of the tears and struggle the couple had to tame this harsh land. Oh, modern traveler* as you pass the remains of a once-thriving Sanpete farm, pause to reflect on the pioneers and what they did to make your life what it is now. Whatever the valley is today and becomes in the years ahead is built upon the foundation which the pioneers struggled to lay. Sourcei Based on personal pioneer histories of early Sanpete settlers and personal observances. -5-
