Miners Conwell and Pancake, Springville 1870 - 1880 & Beyond

In the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Salt Lake City, in the family plot of Samuel C. Pancake are the remains of Albert Conwell, his daughter Galena Conwell and Albert's brother in law, Marion Pancake. As early as 1870, Albert Conwell and his wife Carrie Virginia Pancake arrived in Utah and lived in Springville. They had at least 2 children; George E Conwell and Galena Conwell who married John Ulrich Giesy.

Censuses state that Albert and Marion were miners. We know they both died very young. Marion of consumption and Albert of an unknown cause. We would like to know. We would also like to know which mines they worked in that would have caused them to live in Springville versus Eureka or Park City or Salt Lake.

Thanks for any information you might have about this family.
