Title Tribute To The William and Sophia Daniels Family Reunion
Description find one in their corral the next morning. There are num-erous accounts of William and his sons showing up in a neighbor's field to help harvest a crop that otherwise might be lost. Sacks of flour, buckets of milk, or a cured ham showed up on porches and doorsteps of many needing temp-orary sustenance. The townspeople could depend on William to be involved in civic affairs and in doing what he could for community progress. When schools, churches or recreational buildings were to be erected he was there with his time, talent, and money. He was an interested, concerned citizen at all the town meetings and elections. Knowing the importance of having proper education available, he served on the board of school trustees for many years. At the age of 78 Sophia passed away and was laid to rest in the Moroni cemetery. William was a very lonely man. He lived alone for eight years. In 1910 and at 88 years of age, he married a widow lady by the name of Mrs. Krool , a life-long friend. On November 13, 1912, he and she journeyed to the Manti Temple. William was sealed to Sophia, while she was sealed to her late husband. On December 11, 1915, William completed his sojourn here in his beloved land. He was buried next to the little lady he had loved so dearly, his first wife, Sophia. I have borrowed a poem written by C. N. Lund taken from the book, History of Mt. Pleasant entitled "Gleanings." They gleaned in poverty their meager store, Until their efforts yielded more and more. And while they gleaned their scant supply of food, They gleaned from God the stamina that stood Against the elements and sterile soil, And nerved them in their never-ending toil, So we today glean from their lives and deeds, Inspiring thoughts to help our future needs. It is my prayer that those of us who are here today will have gleaned a greater insight into our heritage. That those who were not able to be with us will make a concerted effort to join us next year, -29-
