    George Lake autobiography
    Account summarizes Lake's family's early activities in the Church in Upper Canada, Ohio, Illinois, and Iowa, and then tells of Lake's 1850 journey to Utah and his subsequent activities in the Ogden area. Lake then writes in considerable detail of his mission to England, 1869-1871, and his visit to relatives in Kingston, Ontario on the way home. Also describes his activities in Oxford, Idaho, where he served as bishop and was involved in the United Order, and tells of his persecution as a polygamist, his 1876 call to the Little Colorado area of Arizona, and his 1885 move to Chihuahua, Mexico. Manuscript is accompanied by a twenty-six page typescript copy.
