Interesting, if a bit rambling, article. My people are from this area, as the
first Mormon Sterrett, William Wilson, after numerous expeditions made for
Brigham Young throughout the Deseret area, decided to relocate to the Bear River
valley. They (Sterretts and Wilhelmsens) settled in Paris and Soda Springs,
then headed west to Oregon. Nice to hear about my heritage - since we have
never been "Utah Mormons."
