"This book came as a response to an urge to learn all that is possible about one of the largest families in Utah- the descendants of Thomas and Lydia Rogers Draper who died in Canada between 1807 and 1819. Practically all of their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren became members of the Mormon Church in 1833 in Canada. These converts are long since dead but their descendants are now numbered by thousands." - Comments and Credits
