Don't miss Bessie's series at her blog, Ancestral Ties, about her springtime trip to Manassa, Colorado.
Manassa and other towns in the San Luis Valley were settled by converts to the Southern States Mission. Mission president John Morgan helped the settlers establish their new homes, and he lived in the town from time to time with his wife, Annie Smith Morgan.
