Inscription. This monument is erected in memory of the pioneers buried here. There are about 20, whose resting place surrounds this monument.

The first grave was that of Nancy Maria Biglow Love, who died November 27, and was buried November 28, 1852.

In 1852 there were only three pioneer ranchers and their families living here. In 1853 Indian trouble forced them to move to Nephi.
