Inscription.  During the years between 1860 and 1879 this plot of ground was used as a burial place for the pioneers. It was the junction where three farms joined. A child of Joseph Thompson was the first person interred, but as the owners objected to their land being used as burial grounds some of the bodies were moved to the present cemetery but several remained here. Among them two children of a Mr. Rasmussen, one of the original owners. Their graves are marked by lilac bushes.
 
Erected 1948 by Daughters of Utah Pioneers. (Marker Number 126.)
