Does anyone know of a cemetery book for Salt Lake County that has names of people buried there. Our family stories is that our grandfather died in Salt Lake City on a wagon train headed back to AR from MT. We were told that the Mormans buried him for his wife. Is there a grave yard anywhere for this type of thing. Can't find him listed on the LDS site. Thank you Judy

This wasn't part of the so-called "Mountain Meadow Massacre" of a wagon train from Arkansas, was it?

Perhaps you should read some of the archeology reports on the "event". Since I am a "former Mormon" I have learned that Lee, the person taking the blame for Brigham Young's order to commit the act, is in my family tree. Do not tell me you do not believe that the massacre is a myth.

Read "Under the Banner of Heaven" I think I remember that there is a list of people involved (not Indians or "pretend" Indians), who are buried at Mountain Meadows and a reference to those who left the train in SLC. I do not think you will find him listed on an LDS site, you may have better luck finding something in Arkansas.
