I ran across an article on Isaac Trumbo a few years back. He was instrumental in helping Utah become a state. He lived in Genoa...part of the Mormon migration there in the 1850-60s. He was not a Mormon himself, but married a Mormon. His dad, Jacob Trumbo, ran into some trouble with the Mormons back in Provo UT. He tried to break up a Mormon backed boycott of non-Mormon shops. I ran across a very interesting article on this in an old travel guide to the western states. It even has a picture of a sign that Jacob put up in his shop window in response to the Mormon boycott. The sign is entitled "Trumbo's Creed". Us Trumbo's out here in CA all have copies of this sign posted in our homes! I can mail you a copy of the article on Isaac and a copy of the Jacob article too. Pretty fascinating stuff. Just let me know your addresss.
Joel Trumbo, Sacramento, CA
