1. The Berry Family Marker
Inscription.  Four early Church pioneers, sons of Jesse Woods and Amelia Shanks Berry, were the founders of Berryville, now Glendale, Utah. Joseph S. and Robert M. and his wife Isabelle Hale Berry, were killed by Indians April 2, 1856. They are burried in Grafton, near Rockville. A mob shot and killed William Shanks Berry while on a mission in Tennessee in 1884. John William, while carrying mail for Brigham Young, was shot by an Indian and carried the bullet until his death.

A large and faithful posterity live to honor them.
