George Stevens was born in Lorad County, Mexico in 1839. He came to Utah in 1860 where he met his wife Lucinda Vilate Flake while George was carrying freight through Salt Lake. The two met at a square dance. Lucinda was the daughter of Green Flake, who came with Brigham Young to Utah in 1847. His name is inscribed with other first pioneers on the statue of Brigham Young in downtown Salt Lake. Photo Courtesy Utah State Historical Society
