Title Twins
Description dispersed wisely, along with the other foods so that it would last until the trip was completed. The rains finally stopped, and the trek proceeded again. A passing glance up the mountainside brought the family to complete attention. Coning down the mountainside, a man approached us. He had long white hair, and a long white beard. No one could even imagine where he came from. He seemed to appear out of nowhere. As he came closer, the man said, "I am very hungry, could you spare some bread?" Dad replied, "Well, we don't have very much and we are going a long ways." After some thought, however, Dad decided to let the old man have one loaf of bread. We were all peeping out through the wagon cover to see what was going on. We could hardly believe what we saw. His clothes were very old and worn. We thought that the man was a sheep-herder. After thanking us for the bread, the old man started back up the mountain. All at once the man disappeared. He vanished before our very eyes, just as he had appeared. Everyone was astonished and could hardly believe what they saw. He must have been a person sent from God, as there was a surplus of bread remaining when we arrived in Salt Lake City. It was as if a miracle had happened again to the Sahlberg family. We wanted for nothing on the last lap of our trip. EPILOGUE The girls all got jobs and enjoyed sharing the love and friendship of the "other family. " They all later married. Grandpa Sandstrom then wanted Hannah to move back to Spring City, and she did. They lived there until their deaths. Three of Hannah's children married Spring City boys and made their homes there. Death has claimed all but one of the girls that lived in Spring City. Eva still lives in her favorite spot, where the Horseshoe reigns tall and supreme above. Life was not easy for the Spring City Twins in those early days. People had to struggle in order to survive-and this they did. It is a heritage we are proud of, and this is only one of many tales that could be told about this quiet and peaceful little town I take pride in calling "Home. " -20-
