My comment to DUPD in Bakersfield, my grandparents as well as great grandparents
were some of the pioneers that settled Southern Utah, There is a chance that we
might have the same great gratgrandparents. Send me a reply if you are
Now go visit Enterprise, UT and give us your impressions after standing in the
blood-drenched field just east of it. The hair on the back of your neck will
stand.My pioneer Grandma said never to forget the sacrifice and
awful tragedy her peers learned that day. And the two years following while
Mormon families raised the surviving children of that wagon train. We
haven't grasped that tragedy yet today. But those ancestors also still
commemmorate their family's sacrifices, on September 11, 1857. Just ten
years after Mormons dedicated their own arrival and survival, they denied 120
others the same dream.But only a fully honest and forthright pioneer
will be 100% transparent in addressing all aspects of the pioneer saga. Praise
be to my righteous grandparents for instilling all the memories.
Thank you Eric for your beautiful thoughts. I have always tied temple square to
those wonderful pioneers and their faith and testimony of our Savior. Your
piece puts all those thoughts and feelings together in a wonderful way.
pioneers were the rough and spiritual groups of the trails to salt lake city.
they suffered so much to have more. i am eternally grateful for my ancestors
whom were part of the trail blazing to salt lake city
