145 years ago today - Jun 21, 1878

Deseret News editorial in defense of giving Orrin Porter Rockwell a church funeral: "At his death he was under indictment for the killing of some persons by the name of Aiken, in Juab county, over twenty years ago... He was reported honorable in all his dealings, true to his friends and his word, firm in the faith of the gospel, and feared only by cattle-thieves and mobocrats and their supporters."
