MARION COUNTY AR
MOUNTAIN MEADOWS MASSACRE

Dividing Line

On May 1, 1857, a wagon train consisting of about 142 pioneer men, women and children departed Arkansas for California. The entire wagon train, except for some small children, was massacred by Paiute Indians and a body of Mormon men disguised as Indians. The Wagon Train is said to have assembled in Carroll Co, AR, but it has been suggested that many of the families who assembled were from Marion Co. or had close family ties with Marion Co families. Does anyone have any family history of these families?

The Mountain Meadows Massacre September 11, 1857. The Mountain Meadows Massacre was the largest civilian massacre in our Country's history.
