Title The Grand Marchall and Twenty-Four Silver-Greys on Parade
Description time. Your Grandfather's Livingston, Andarson, Draper, Whit-lock and their wives were all choice friends of the Prophet. Grandpa Morley cleared land, established a settlement called YELROM (Morley spelled backwards). He gave the Prophet Joseph a building spot and an acre of land to have a garden. He gave him the materials with which to build this home, too. The most important thing he did was offer himself as a prisoner in the prophet's stead, so the mobs would not kill the prophet! " Grandma seemed all out of breath after this part of her story. It always made her excited as she recalled these perilous times, and this worried David, too.

It almost killed his mother, but after the threats of "We will kill, kill, kill, and burn the Fort again,' Father Morley thought it was better to lose one life than many. He did give these braves that hunched down into their blakets and stared from drugged, war-bound, savage minds and hostile eyes at this grief stricken group of settlers!"
