Mountain Meadows Massacre Descendants

The Mountain Meadows Massacre Descendants site is dedicated in loving memory to our ancestors who died in the massacre at Mountain Meadows, Utah September 7-11th, 1857.                                                            

   120 men, women and children traveling in the wealthy wagon train headed to California were killed at Mountain Meadows. Only 17 children were allowed to live–all under the age of 7.                                                                                                        

This site is for the descendants and family members of those who died at the Massacre so that we can share family histories, photographs, remembrances and research. We welcome and value input and expertise from historians and others interested in the Mountain Meadows Massacre.
