If you have any questions, please contact me Again, welcome. We just don’t have enough people to stay on top of the comments left, but that will change soon.

  2. Does anyone know if a complete manifest of the Fancher party exists? In the mid-eighty’s my sister traced where our Great Great Great Grandfather joined the Fancher party in Arkansas in 1857 and was never heard from again. There were rumors he and his wife (G G G Grandmother) were killed by Indians but we have never been able to find their names on any list of the Mountain Meadows Massacre.
    My Grandfather’s name was John Boyer

    • Hi Jim. (I’m so sorry for the slow reply—we don’t have anyone to regularly monitor our web entries) We do, in fact, have a complete log of the wagon train families, their connections etc. You can contact me directly (I will reply faster) at I’ll look for the name JOHN BOYER. Let’s see if we can find something. But, our list is just the family connections. The mormons stole/destroyed all the paperwork from the wagon train, so we don’t actually have an exact log of those individual. That is so sad to me, the names that are lost to us. I’ve asked/begged the LDS Church to share the information they have, but so far have gotten nothing. Thanks for your interest

    • Jim – I am a descendant of your John Boyer’s brother William Henry Boyer. I would love to get in touch with you. My email is beckydrake2005@yahoo dot com

  3. We had more than one set of family in this massacre. The Dunlap, and Wharton, a lot of them maybe related to us, because back the family stayed together a lot. But either way we the family know the truth.

  4. Thank you Mary Baker Ledbetter for your research.

    RIP. GGG Uncles : John Miley Jones and
    Newton Jones and Cousin Sophronia Jones.

  5. I’d like to know a complete listing of the Mormons involved in this deal. I come from Mormons on booth sides and I’d like to know why the members of my family all look like Native Americans ! Our genealogy records from right about this time period gets mysteriously and so it seems purposely confused !
