Long Description:
In the early summer of 1849 the first known death occurred in Sessions's Settlement and this plot was selected as a cemetery. Nearly a score of people including pioneers, Indians, and a California Emigrant (whose headstone is on opposite side of monument.) were buried here. Later sub-irrigation caused the settlers to locate a new cemetery. This spot unites in common brotherhood the Indians, the Mormon Pioneers and other emigrants, who died in the conquering of the West.
