Mr. Ainsworth came to the United States from England, where he was a sailor. Shortly after he came he spent a year, 1874-1875, working on the St. George temple. After coming coming to Sevier county he was engaged to run a sawmill during the united order. He has been an invalid for fifty years, as a result of having his foot crushed while hauling logs. Since the time he was injured he has been unable to do heavy labor, doing, however a little prospecting.
