LAYTON -- Davis County's Canadian connections will be the topic presented at the Sons of Utah Pioneers Snow Horse Chapter monthly meeting.
The public is invited to the meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Davis County Library Central Branch auditorium, 155 N. Wasatch Drive.
From 1886 through 1914, 25 to 30 families from Davis County or with connections to the county emigrated to Alberta, Canada, said Stephen G. Handy, Snow Horse SUP chapter spokesman.
The families, numbering nearly 1,000 people, founded, among others, the communities of Cardston, St. Mary's, Raymond, Leavitt, Aetna and Kimball.
What happened to these people and their descendants will be shared at the meeting, Handy said.
Topic presenters Bill Sanders and John "Jack" Nalder, SUP Chapter members, have relatives who made the trek to Canada or are descendants of those emigrants.
