    • BAYLISS SPROUSE OBITUARY, Vernal Express 2 Apr 1915

      Bayliss Sprouse was born in Texas August sixth, 1831;

      He came to Utah during the early fifties and engaged in the activities of pioneer life.

      Among other labors, he made several trips back across the plains to the Missouri after immigrants and was one of the rescuers of the ill-fated hand-cart companies.

      Under Captain Wm. Kimball, he served as a militia man during the Utah Black Hawk Indian War.

      He married Nancy Wilmouth Johnson, a sister of Lycurgus and Alfred Johnson, and this union was blessed with eight children whose names follow: Willis and Nancy Mitchell, dead; Bayliss ?Jake? Sprouse, Jas. Sprouse of Roosevelt, Mrs. Genevieve Johnson of Vernal, Mrs.Cora Mullins and Mrs, Burnetta Ross of Lapoint, living.

      His entire life was spent on the fringe of civilization. He was devoted to the labor of a pioneer. In youth he assisted in the settlement of Salt Lake City, Cedar City, Iron County and Rich County in Utah. San Luis valley in Colorado, and last of all, he established the first store in the Deep Creek district of the Reservation.

      Until about three years ago, he was actively engaged in business, though he lived to the ripe old age of seventy-nine years. As a citizen he was honorable, upright and progressive.
