On May 2, James Bevan, who has been the director of the Tooele Pioneer Museum from it’s inception until last month, gratified the Sons of Utah Pioneers Settlement Canyon Chapter with stories of pioneer ancestors.

He followed the march of the LDS pioneers west from Nauvoo, Ill., to Utah. Along the way he told of many tragedies and hardships that later on proved to be blessings to the saints.

He reminded attendees that the Lord is very aware of everyone’s needs and will provide for them in miraculous ways that often do not seem like miracles at the time. He recited miracles of quails, mud, buffalo and people, listening to and responding to the spirit. All left his presentation with a re-energized appreciation of those who did so much so that people can have so much today.
