Title Early Swiss-German, Scandinavian Ancestors
Description He had a large family, his house burned down, and he had a difficult time before he died After the Temple was built, there was considerable interest in the use of adobe bricks for home construction Hans Peterson (Scandinavian) located an adobe yard in the west part of town. The mud was mixed by a horse going around in a circle, and straw was added periodically to the blend for reinforcing. Later, J B. Jacobsen (also Scandinavian) located a clay source about three miles south of Manti and constructed a kiln to bake the brick. It was good quality brick and was marketed throughout Utah. The interview with Gerald concluded with much detailed information about the construction of the Temple and the landscaping of the Temple Hill, which is well documented elsewhere, and is therefore not repeated here. Although Sanpete County is generally assumed to have been settled by people of Scandinavian descent, the original pioneer company that settled Manti included people mostly from New England, followed later by a group of Swiss-German Saints and a few Scandinavians in the 1850's and 1860's. This is well documented in several histories of early Manti which have been compiled since its settlement in 1849. These histories include Reminiscences of Early Days in Manti by Mrs. A.B. Sidwell, 1889, These Our Fathers~A Centennial History of Sanpete County by Daughters of the Utah Pioneers of Sanpete County, 1947, Song of a Century by the Manti Centennial Committee, 1949; View From the Red Point by A.C.T. Antrei, 1976, The Other Forty-Niners by A.C.T. Antrei and R.D. Scow, 1982. and The Manti Temple, by the Manti Temple Centennial Committee Many additional historical narratives have also been included in various issues of Saga of the Sanpitch each year since 1969.
