Title Witch's Knoll
Description been gathered through the years from the Knoll and are kept as choice evidences of a past civilization. The line of the Title on the Knoll is as follows: First purchased from the United States by Canute W. Peterson, next Mt. Pleasant Commercial and Savings Bank, then George Jo-hansen, Charles L. Olson, James A. Nielsen, Sanpete County, James A. Nielsen, Harold M. Jensen and the present owner, Jay M. Jensen. Imagine finding two grinding stones and grinders which are centuries old in your own backyard! Jay and Connie have done just that. They built their new home on the east side of Witch's Knoll corralling an eastern and southern view of the land of the pioneers. To the north is a beautiful view of Ephraim. It was Jay's dream to build there, but Connie always refused, claiming it was too far from town. Stepping out of a Junior High Graduation, she overheard Jay ordering lumber. She then realized he was serious, so she joined him in his plans. Their son, David, wanted to be married in the new home on the Knoll in November even if he had to walk a plank to get in--which they really did! The only advantage they had going for them was water. They piped it from the foot of Ball Mountain, but the clay and rocks on the site were a trauma. People who came to see them had to have their cars dug out of the slick clay that winter, so they soon parked by the farm yards and walked to the house. They had to make a newer, shorter road, hauling tons of gravel and doing much cement work. They had their lonely moments, but they have learned to love it. Hauling in top soil and replanting shrubs and gress have kept them busy. They have more togetherness as a family and with neighbors building so close, it will soon be a village-not on the top of the knoll as before, but close enough to add to its his-tory and mystery.
