Murdered in Cold Blood by Mormons, in Mountain Meadows, Utah. See list of cold blooded Mormon Killers that also plundered the train leaving the bodies stripped of their clothing lying in the meadow for the wolves and vutures to feed upon.
LIST OF SHOOTERS AND CLUBBERS
     AT MOUNTAIN MEADOWS MASSACRE
     September 7-11, 1857
      
The following list of participants has been gleaned from writings of Anna Jean Backus, R.N. Baskin, Will Bagley, Juanita Brooks, Sally Denton, John D. Lee, J.R. Dunn, William Wise, William Secrest, Captain James Lynch and others. It continues to be validated by cross-referencing between recognized historians.
Most historians agree that 50-60 Mormons were involved in the actual killing of the wagon train members. In his confessions, John D. Lee stated that there were 54 men directly involved in the massacre. The list of 52 participants in Lee's confessions must be given priority over others who wrote about it later on. Other testimony and research helps to validate Lee's list but much of the later research was corrupted by many years of lying, folklore, and misinformation. * equals commissioned and non-com officers. ? equals private rank.

Planners, Schemers, Shakers, and Masterminds of Mountain Meadows Massacre:
When assessing blame for the massacre, one must never forget the schemers and planners who lacked the guts to do their own dirty work (very much like Iraq) but eager to set forth plans for others. Those are:
   
     Brigham Young (Governor, Prophet & much, much more) (Bagley) (Dento
     George A. Smith (second in command to Brigham, Apostle, instigated violence in Southern Utah,) (Bagley) (Wise) (Backus) (Denton)
     William Dame (gave “decoy and exterminate” order) (Bagley) (Gibbs) (Baskin) (Wise) (Dunn) (Denton)x
     Isaac Haight (local firebrand who instigated massacre.) (Bagley) (Denton) (Arrest warrant) (Lee) (Gibbs) (Baskin) (Wise) (Backus) (Dunn )x
     Jacob Hamblin ( set up wagon train to camp at massacre site; falsely charged Government for getting children from Indians) (Lee) (Wise) (Backu
     Other names associated with responsibility for massacre:
     Cook, Richard (Brooks)- there is not a clear reading on this man.
     Knight, ______ (Lee) Lee shows a second Knight in his list but unclear about involvement.
     Wells, Daniel - commander of Nauvoo Legion; Wells was heavily involved in the cover-up; controlled first Lee trial.
     Wilkins, Charles (Secrest) - an outlaw who was captured in California. True West Magazine writer William Secrest listed him as a participant in massacre.
     Wood, George B. (Bagley) - leader in militia; killed a Cedar City schoolteacher who showed too much interest in massacre; was sent to prison; was excommunicated at same time as Lee and Haight. It is not clear that he was at the actual massacre or whether he was excommunicated for murdering the woman or participating in massacre.
   
     This list was researched and prepared by Dr. Burr Fancher.
