Title Walkara
Description to remain out of sight and to hide their live- greatest Chief had to be buried higher on the mountainside than any other chief s grave. The bun al party followed Corn Creek to a rocky ridge which was free of snow. Squaws did most of the work for the interrment. Walker' s body-was placed facing the valley below, with Brigham' s letter in one hand. Two squaws had been killed to become helpmates, and two live Piede children were also int erred. The children were to warn of dangers that might beset Walker on the way to the heaven of his ancestors. Fifteen horses were killed and left iterns he would need. Sources: Arrington, Leonard J.
