History - Daughters of the Utah Pioneer members join in celebration of which a new DUP marker was unveiled. The Old Pioneer Cemetery in Goshen Utah has a marker to help remember those almost forgotten pioneers who graves were plowed over. One will be able to have a place to hold them in loving remembrance.

Engraved on the new marker is as follows: Original Goshen Pioneer Cemetery "As early Latter-day Saint pioneers came to the Goshen Valley, they settled in area then known as Sandtown, the Bend, and the Fort. Later President Brigham Young urged the settlers to form the township of Goshen and predicted that a new highway would be built near the existing cemetery. He instructed the pioneers to relocate their farms, homes and their cemetery to higher solid ground believed to be more fertile. Many moved their cabins and several of those buried in the original cemetery were interred in the New Goshen Cemetery located south of the newly established town. No record exists of those whose remains were moved. After 1880 no new burials were made in this cemetery.

The original Goshen Pioneer Cemetery is located 300 yards north of this monument in ground made sacred by the sacrifice of original and native pioneers who gave their all for their faith. The following men, women and infants are buried herein: Louisa Jane Bigelow 1858; Diana Dall 1859; John Shields Gardner 1862; William Edward Martin 1865; Julie Ann Gardner, 1865; Riley Stewart, 1866; Gertrude Sorensen, 1868; Henry Lyman Cook, 1869; Hyrum Cook, 1869; Mary Ann Weech, 1873; Mary Ellen Finch, 1876; Soren Christensen Sorensen, 1876; Henry David Dall, 1876; Samuel Weech, 1877; Hyrum Finch, 1879; Annie Marie Sorensen, 1880; Nelcie Sorensen, 1880; Soren Sorensen Jr., 1880.

They have not been forgotten of their lives and determined spirits; they play an important part of a vibrant heritage." Information of the families of these grand old pioneers, photos is available at the DUP museum in the Payson city center.
