Title Statehood
Description and ten minutes local standard time, just seven minutes after President Cleveland signed a proclamation of statehood, Mr. Jensen is a Democrat and it is hoped he will be the winner. Sentinel-January 8, 1896 It is noted that in the regular session of Manti Council Meeting held January 7, 1896, a bill was sutaitted by Marshal Billings amounting to 25 centd for flags for decorating on State Day. Bill was allowed. Council adjourned. Signed-Ferdinand Alder Mayor JESSIE WHICH JENSEN, of Manti, Utah, was nine years old when Utah was admitted to the sisterhood of States. She re-members the gunners and their 45 salutes, the noise, the flag and bunting decorating the Tabernacle and Main Street, the band, the choruses, and the speeches. One speaker explained what statehood meant and this inpressed her. It was a somber, joyful occasion. Mrs, Jensen was the only person I found who remenbered this historic day first hand, There were several others whom I contacted-all in their nineties, but they had no remembrance of it. Mrs. Jensen will be 96 years old on Septenber 24, 1982. She has lived a good productive life, highly esteemed by every-one. Her sense of humor is wonderful, and she considers it a great privilege to vote in all elections. Just think, if you can, of all the changes during her life span. 1 History of Utah, Vol. I, p. 490, by Wayne Stout. 2 Deseret, p. 189. 3 Deseret, pp. 189-191. 4 Deseret, p. 191. 5 Deseret, p. 196. 6 Deseret, p. 197. 7 Deseret, p. 198. 8 & 9 History of Utah, Vol. 2, p. 8 and Vol. 1, p. 519.
