The following is from the personal history of Ephraim and Verena Hatch:

15 August 1977, letter from Verena to our family:

“Eph and I went to the Redd Family reunion at Monticello. We went the long way down through thee Canyonlands. It’s fantastic country, huge mountains of solid rock, weathered in all kinds of shapes, columns, mounds which look like pulled salt water taffy. We marveled at how our ancestors were able to get through, even on horseback. It was our wedding anniversary and we enjoyed it tremendously. It was overcast and cool most of the day. We arrived in Monticello about 5 p.m. as they were setting up for dinner. We were welcomed with open arms and helped a bit. The president of the Redd Family had made a picture display of Lemuel Hardison Redd, his two wives and all of the children of each wife, all portrait quality, beautifully mounted. Dad copied it. I hope he got good pictures. I think he did. He usually does. He then took a picture of the whole group even though the lighting wasn’t what he needed. The dinner was scrumptious, and we made many friends.”

“I (Eph) went somewhat reluctantly to this Redd reunion, thinking it would be a collection of old, uninteresting strangers to me. This was a large family. A family meeting was held in the high school auditorium. I sat there feeling sorry for myself as the program got underway. It wasn’t long until a very sober man was introduced and asked to speak. He looked much like Elder Marion G. Romney – very serious. I prepared for the worst. He told a story about Lemuel H. Redd and his wife, Keziah Jane Butler when they were first married and trying to establish themselves there in southern Utah. The story began with some Indians chasing them for some reason or other. Lem and Keziah managed to duck into a cave and the Indians raced on by. It was obvious that the Indians would come back when they realized what had happened, and Keziah looked up at her husband and asked, ‘Lem what are we going to do?’ Lem answered, “I guess we’ll have to hole up here in this cave till we out-number them,’ and then sat down.

“I suddenly realized that I was in the presence of a very fun loving people. They not only enjoy life, hard though it has sometimes been.”
