Title Tombstone
Description TOMBSTONE Shannon Simpson Rhodes Non-Professional First Place Poet I never knew this man who rests below me, and yet I gather he was of great importance. A girl came today holding the hand of her grandpa. He told her, and me about ISAAC MORLEY BORN 1788 DIED 1865. Grandpa told us the story of his family With faith Morley led the families to their Promised Land in Sanpete. He withstood persecution in Ohio, led [he pioneers to the West, sheltered Brother Joseph, and became a leader himself. Here in Manti, under the soil of the Sanpitch, 1 represent a great man. Grandpa told me. 1 suppose Morley planted the seed to this thriving community when he brought the white settlers. Without him, 1 might have been just a stone purposeless in a land of dry sagebrush and obnoxious rattlesnakes and nomadic peoples. 55
