About William Price

William Price II The following paragraphs are copied from:

Daughters of Utah Pioneers Lesson for October 2000 Pioneers of Carbon County

Compiled by Jean S. Greenwood, Lou Jean S. Wiggins, and Mary N. Porter Harris pages 60


William Price II was an early pioneer in Utah, arriving September 24, 1852, in the wagon train commanded by Henry Miller. He spent many years colonizing and exploring the Utah territory and was one of the first to explore the Spanish Fork Canyon. He came across the stream now called the White River which he followed until he found another stream about six miles away which ran through Pleasant Valley. This was later called Fish Creek. He called the convergence of the two streams the Price River. The city of Price in Carbon County is also named after this early explorer.

William Price II was born December 4, 1818, in the village of Lee, Gloucestershire, England, the son of William Price and Mary Ann Price.

In 1869 William, who was then the bishop in Goshen, discovered what was later called the Price River while he was exploring Spanish Fork Canyon. Although he never lived there, the town of Price received its name in his honor.
