He walked alongside of, and was a contemporary to, many bigger than life folklore legends which we only know through movies or western novels. The short list includes Brigham Young, Samuel Clements, Buffalo Bill Cody, Jim Bridger, Kit Carson, Orren Porter Rockwell the Avenging Angel, Capt. Lot Smith Mountain Fox ... He did it all ... volunteer in the Civil War, pony express rider, stagecoach driver, Indian fighter, rescue of the Willie and Martin Handcart Companies, bringing the Union Pacific Railroad down Echo Canyon to the Golden Spike, Capt. Andrus Green River Expedition. And yet there was a tenderness mixed into this, somewhat of a contradiction, pioneer. Amongst his adventuresome endeavors, he could be found conducting a dance class, teaching in a one room schoolhouse, singing his most current song at a local social gathering ... or being the midwife in the birth of his baby daughter.
