Volume Three: "People of Draper 1849-1932" is dedicated to all those who have submitted histories for this volume.
The Draper Historical
Committee, organized by the Draper Historical Society in the autumn
of 1994, began writing a sesquicentennial history of Draper. People of
Draper, Volume I, 1849-1924, was released in 1999. Volume Two, Sivogah
to Draper City, 1849-1977, was released in 2001, and Volume Three, this
volume, released fall of 2004. This special group of volunteers, and
others, who will be honored by present and future generations, have
skillfully guided Draper history to its present status. A well deserved
expression of gratitude and appreciation is extended for the vision and
work of the following Volume Three committee members (listed
alphabetically): Marjorie Smith Clements, Enid Enniss, Noel H. Enniss,
Clairon Huff, Luana Guymon, Paul J. Smith.
Due to the overwhelming response of more than four hundred family and individual histories submitted to the committee, the number of histories far exceeded a one book publication. To solve this problem, for Volume I the committee elected to include only histories prior to and including 1924, a time span of seventy-five years, beginning with the first settler in Draper, or South Willow Creek in 1849. This volume includes all histories submitted since that first publication, and chronicles those "People of Draper" from 1849-1932.
"Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, its the only thing that has." Margaret Meade
Pictures were received for most of the histories, but some pictures lacking the quality needed for printing could not be used. If all pictures are not matched with the correct history, please excuse the mismatch. When duplicate histories were submitted, the committee selected one history per person for the book. Some histories submitted had been contributed to the Daughters of Utah Pioneers Ebenezer Brown Camp, while other histories may have been copied from literary sources, such as "Ebenezer Brown and Descendants." The committee takes no responsibility for histories submitted to it that may have been "plagiarized" from the Daughter of Utah Pioneers or other books.
To update family or individual histories, correct errors or add additional family information, contact the Draper Historical Society library staff.
Please excuse the committee for errors overlooked and omissions that may have been made when histories required reductions in length. Unless the committee could check the spelling, accuracy of names or places, the spelling in histories, unless a direct quote, was left as submitted. Histories of individuals born after 1932 and those families who moved to Draper after 1932 are not included in this book.
