Title Sanpete Sagas
Description Besides the constant hard labor they performed in building their new home place on earth, they were soon informed by Brigham Young that they should begin quarrying the rock from the hill north of Manti so that the important task of building the new temple could start. The Danes liked Old Charley because of his humorous sympathy with their affairs. They would visit his black- the new arrivals. Charley soon picked some clues from the mannerisms of the men, and he gave each one of them a nickname. Since many of them had the last name of Peterson, it became, sort of a joke, and this resulted in such names as "Smilin* Pete," "Baylor Pete," "Petey Bishop," and many others. Somehow he conceived of the nickname "Rastus Canoop." The stories he connected with these names were enjoyed by the Danes so that they all fell into the practice of using the nicknames instead of the true names. This use of the used. Forest Supervisor had a message which had to be hand-son with the message, but he was unable to find the man after wide inquiry, so he returned to his father. The Supervisor told him, "Go back and ask for name of 'Baylor Pete.'" When the son returned to the door of one house he had already visited a man came to the door and with a sheepish grin on his face he said, "You know, I forgot dat vas my name." One day a man came to the shop with a terrible toothache. His eyes were nearly swollen shut and his jaw was he pleaded. "I can't stand this any more." Charley saw what it was, but he didn t think he could do anything. 81
