165 years ago today - Feb 5, 1855

[Chief Walker]
News has arrived that Walker the Great Utah Chief died on the 29 Jan at the Meadow Creek some six miles beyond Fillmore, and that the Utahs had killed 2 piede squaws & 2 piede children and some 12 or 15 of Walkers Horses and intended to kill 2 Pauvans & 3 mormons. This is done on the death of a great chief as a sacrifice I understand.

[Walker had been baptized a member of the church]
