Title The Grand Marchall and Twenty-Four Silver-Greys on Parade
Description Walker a few months after this terrible trauma, renamed him 'Joseph Walker', and took him into their home to live. " "Here come the men fron the quarry. They must have gotten lots of stone cut today from the looks of their clothes and faces. Pour some hot water from the reservoir on the stove. Cold water won't take that dust off." The men washed at the washstand and large, earthen, basin outside the door. The men were so weary that they fell on the little plot of grass that Grandma and her girls had managed to nurse to live. The children gathered around, always eager to hear about the Temple's building and the stone that was out from a near-by very available hill. "Yes, I think a celebration for the dedication of the Temple when it's finished is a splendid idea. We could even have a parade and honor all who come to the dedication! " The children were so glad to hear this. "Why don't you write Father Morley, who is in Salt Lake to be on the jury of the first murder trial ever held in Utah even before we became a State. Perhaps he could bring some decorations for our float." "Your Great-grandfather Morley was called from Manti for the first murder trial held in the Valley, and also the very first State Legislature Session after Utah became a State." She thought of how he had traveled all over the counties here as the first Stake President, too. "Great-grandpa must have been the busiest man around, wasn't he grandma? You've told us of his being in the very first Bishopric of the church as a Counselor to Edward Part-ridge. Then he was called as the second Bishop ever in 1835, only two years after he was baptized." Anna nodded, looking out the door at those sturdy, tired and hungry men of hers. She was so proud of her father-in-law and her husband and all the men who came with them to this new-found home. Isaac had always been faithful and obedient to authority and she knew that was why they had been taught to be, too. "We have been so blessed, even if we did have to come way out here to find security when the law refused to protect us in the East! " -59-
