The Children of Mountainville

Before its name was changed to Alpine, the community surrounded by Alp-like peaks in Utah County, Utah was called Mountainville.

Local sculptor and artist, Dennis Smith, remembers the children who populated that frontier settlement in a casting dedicated to them on the top of the Alpine Cemetery among the graves of many pioneer children and early settlers.

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
