Title Strong Convictions - The Snow Family
Description Gardner, Sarah, William and Warren S Snow went to Manti and invested in city property Warren S was made Brigadier General of the Sanpete Military District President Brigham Young and Warren S Snow dedicated Temple Hill for a temple to be built. James and Eliza Snow brought a company of 250 souls from Pottawattamie. Iowa. When they came to Salt Lake for the first time in 1852, James wept when he saw this great valley. They had a hard trip. Eliza and James went to Provo They loved it there. She would wash James' suit nightly and have it done by early morning. She was a constant companion Brigham Young asked James to take a second wife, but he didn't want to. A wife was picked. Jane Cecilan Roberts, my great-grandmother. James was upset with this arrangement. James was the Captain of Police and was an elected surveyor of Utah County He surveyed the towns of Provo, Heber City, Orem, Spanish Fork, and Pond Town, which was later changed to Salem Town James and Jane Cecilan Roberts Snow went to Sanpete and helped settle Pettyville in 1873. He was the bookkeeper and secretary of notes and land surveyed in Sterling, laying it out in 1880 James went with George W. Petty to points in Southern Utah. These men worked well together and were good citizens. He surveyed Kanarravilie and Rockville in Southern Utah. James and Jane built a home in Sterling. They truly worked well together as both were mature leaders. Some very good years were spent here They had eleven children James and Eliza Ann Carter had nine children. Their posterity is numerous. May we, their descendants, hold high the torch and build as well as they did upon the rock of faith, the legacy left to us. 3)
