Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 117
Description Those who are thoroughly trustworthy by nature may be sure that society will give their virtue full opportunity to develop it- self. The unselfish, dutiful child in a family is always adequately "put upon." To the bravest soldier is ever given the honor of leading the forlorn hope. The Roundheds had been pioneers, I learned, in divers dismal settlements. They were among the founders of that "Happy Valley," in Nevada, where the dogs scratched savagely in the sand for places to cool their burning feet, and hens threw themselves on their backs and waved their claws in the air with the same end in view. I am not speaking in jest; I have the directest obtainable authority for the anecdote that Sister Morris found a young chicken on her parlor mantel- piece, which had hatched out from the egg there. It was one of three eggs, the first laid in the new settlement set up on the man- telpiece as a special delicacy for her husband, and forgotten acci- dentally when "Colin cam' hame." That sister gave up raising chickens, because the hot sand cooked the eggs nearly as fast as the hens laid them; and al- though the hens were willing to sit on them till they boiled themselves, nothing came of their devotion. This was in the charming Mormon "cotton settlement" on the Muddy River, called Saint Thomas. Mrs. Roundhed, bent with sciatica, in windswept Kannarra, the Little Colorado River, 18~0-1900 (Tucson: University of Arizona Press, Ig73), pp. 6-10. John D. Lee has several references to Bishop Roundy, including his move to Arizona in 1873. Cleland and Brooks, A Mormon Chronicle, 2:245--46. Lorenzo W. Roundy lost his life at Lee's Ferry while crossing the Colorado River, June I, 1876. He was en route to the settlements of the Little Colorado in Arizona. Peterson, Mormon Colonizing Along the Little Colorado River, p. 78.
