Title Preface
Description PREFACE The purpose of the Saga of the Sanpitch has always been to preserve the historical happenings of Sanpete Count) This Volume 29. with a theme of "Ships Sails. Ox Teams and Handcarts" is designed to support (he Sesquicentennial Celebration of the Pioneers who first entered Salt Lake Valley in 1847 We arc dedicating this issue to the early Pioneers of Sanpete Valley who sacrificed so much and made possible the good life we have today. • A Pioneer is one who leads the way through an uncharted course. Thus, there arc many pioneers in every generation We arc mindful of each one We honor all who give needed direction, who lead us on to something higher and better. Many of our early Pioneers came from European countries by sailing vessels and crossed the plains with ox teams or handcarts After arriving here, they brought water from mountain streams to barren soil, plowed, planted and cultivated They built homes, schools, churches, and temples. They struggled and persevered under difficult circumstances. Many gave their lives-the ultimate sacrifice They set a pattern of honesty, integrity and work, for us to follow. We honor them best by walking in their footsteps, planting seeds of courage, continuing to build where they laid the foundation and marking the way for future generations This issue of The Saga contains stories of many of these Pioneers. There are unwritten stories of many more We hope these stories will represent all Pioneers and reflect the spirit of this Sesquicentennial Year. The theme for 1998. Volume 30 will be "People and Places Remembered." It may be our final volume. We arc hopeful that you will chose to include stories of your ancestors. Many who made their contributions to the early volumes are no longer with us We express appreciation to all who have helped in any way to make the Historical Writing Contest, and the Saga of the Sanpitch a success. ii
