History of Anthony W. Ivins, Utah
Taken from the Utah Historical Society (Links Added)

Traveled from Sulphur Springs to Apache Pass a distance of 26 miles. This is the place where the Apaches concentrated their forces and for a long time held the U.S. troops at defiance. The ground for miles around has been moistened by the blood of their victims. There is a military post here at present which holds them in partial control but they have never been conquered.

On his return from this mission, Ivins was appointed constable of St. George -- the first of a series of public positions he held. Shortly thereafter he was called on another mission to preach to the Indians and Mexicans in New Mexico. In 1878 he married Elizabeth Ashby Snow, also from St. George, whom he first met when they were both children traveling to southern Utah. She was the daughter of Erastus Snow, one of the foremost missionaries and colonizers of the early Mormon period, as well as an apostle of the church. Anthony and Elizabeth Ivins were the parents of nine children, eight of whom grew to maturity: Antoine R., H. Grant, Stanley S., Mrs. Anna Wilson, Mrs. Florence Hyde, Mrs. Leah Cardon, Mrs. Fulvia Sloan, and Mrs. Augusta Wells.
