DAILY HERALD (Provo, Utah newspaper), 2 Dec 2007:
Article on MILL FORK (the first of a four-part series) by D. Robert Carter. Excerpt: "A tragic accident saddened the people of Mill Fork and Springville in 1889. Brigham WORTHEN, a much-esteemed citizen of Springville, worked hauling lumber into Utah Valley from Jones and Mickel's sawmill at Mill Fork. As he drove down the canyon with a heavy load one day, his wagon collapsed, and Worthen fell to the ground. The vehicle and its load of lumber crashed down upon him. Passersby extricated the unfortunate man from the tangled mess and conveyed him to his home. Dr. Shores treated his injuries, but in spite of his administrations, the wounds proved fatal. Regrettably, Worthen left a wife and 11 children, two of them adopted."
