Hulda Charlotte Zabriskie was born January 30, 1844, at Ambrosia, Lee County, Iowa. She was the daughter of Lewis Curtis Zabriskie and Mary Higbee. Her mother died before they came west, and her father soon married Ann Park, a girl who was taking care of the children, and she proved to be a very kind and capable stepmother. I have heard my Hulda say many times that she could not have loved her own mother more than she did her.
They came to Utah in 1851 with the Garden Grove Company, settling first as Provo, then Salem, then Fairview and finally at Spring City where they remained permanently.
While they were crossing the plains the Indians saw Hulda and were very much attracted to her on account of her long white hair and tried to buy her. They followed them for several days and offered them horses, guns, meat and whatever they had for her. After this they kept her hid whenever they were in Indian territory.
She was married to Joseph Moroni Sanders, August 20, 1860 at Fairview, Utah. Their first child, Mary Amanda, was born at Fairview, September 10, 1861, and on February 26, 1864 a son was born which lived only two days.
In 1865 her father-In-Law, Moses Martin Sanders, and his family were called to the Dixie Cotton Mission. It was found that cotton could be raised quite successfully here, and there had been a factory built at Washington County where the cotton could be turned into yard goods, some ready made clothing, and blankets which could be exchanged for other products throughout the state.
Joseph Moroni and his brothers obtained land in the Washington fields, and Moses Sanders bought the Middleton Ranch and built a house there just east of the bridge, which still stands in good condition.
Their daughter, Nettie Ann Sanders died in 1960.
