Description to-Mrs. Norman. This one was tall, thin, serious and high- cheek-boned, and the two together reminded me of Hood's "For I am short and she is tall, And that's the short and long of it." To repress my inclination to smile, I plunged into conversation, inquiring whether a young woman who appeared in the door- way for a moment, vanishing at a summons from the kitchen, was the tall wife's daughter. She replied, chidingly, "Certainly not!" and the plump one answered, merrily, "Oh, no. No, that's our Mr. Norman's third ! "54 Of Parowan itself, I saw little. The principal houses surround the court-house square, and are shaded generously by double 54Bishop Norman is p robably William H. Dame whose "low-roofed but wide- spreading home" still stands in Parowan. It is located directly across the street from the town square where a rock church stands that dates from the 1850s. William H. Dame was one of the stalwarts of the church and of the colonization of southern Utah. He was associated with Joseph Smith in Nauvoo and came to Utah in the migration of 1848. He was called to the Iron Mission in Parowan in 185 I. In 1852 he headed the settlement at Red Creek but a year later returned to Parowan. In 1856 he was named stake president in Parowan and held that position until 1880, except for a period when on a mission to England. He was an officer in the territorial militia, territorial legislator, farmer, and businessman. Although arrested and im- prisoned for alleged participation in the Mountain Meadows Massacre, Dame was not convicted and he continued to play an active role in the community. William Dame had four wives, but died without children of his own. His wives were Lovinna Andrews, Virginia Lovina Newman, Sarah Ann Carter, and Lydia Ann Killian, but only three wives were living with Dame in 18~2. Della Dame Edmunds, "Life History of William H. Dame" (William H. Dame Papers, Special Collections Department, Marriott Library, University of Utah), and Jenson, Biographical Encyclopedia, I ~532. The telegraph office was initially located in William Dame's home but later moved to the home of Robert Quarm and Bishop Charles Adams. Carter, "Teleg- raphy," Our Pioneer Heritage, 4:547. 100
