r By LaRon TaylorrThe Mt. Nebo Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers had a dinner meeting with their wives & guests on June 27. They enjoyed a great catered meal and listened to a presentation on the early history of Payson. Our members had noted that L. Dee Stevenson had been posting pictures and articles in the Payson Chronicle titled “Pictures Tell the Payson Story” for a very long time, so we contacted him to see if he would speak to us. Mr. Stevenson has been a member of the Payson Historical Society for a long time and loves to talk about the history of this town in southern Utah County. He has also recently published “The Payson Story in Words and Pictures”. The book contains a huge pictorial collection of early Payson businesses and homes, along with associated dialogue explaining the history. Many of the Chapter members purchased this book.rHis presentation covered the first 3 families that settled Payson, then covered information on other families that followed later. Some of the early businesses were also talked about. Mr. Stevenson is a storehouse of knowledge about Payson and he kept the audience spellbound for the entire time. Many of the SUP Chapter Members had ties to the people he talked about and that made it even more interesting.rThe Mt. Nebo Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers and their wives meet monthly for these dinner meetings and guest speakers. They also have 2 or 3 one day treks each year that usually cover something about pioneer history. Anyone interested in joining our small group can call Dan Howlett for more information at 801-361-0108. It is a fun group that loves to honor their pioneer ancestors.
