Title Gentile Account, page 091
Description After he left us in the evening, one of the best dancers at the Military Ball came in from his shoe-shop to give us some information about the Indian prophet. Colonel Hardy91 is a missionary and interpreter to the Pi-edes here. If I am not mistaken he bears the title of Bishop also. His duty is what I suppose that of a resident Indian Agent should be, to explain and adjust all misunderstandings and quarrels between the whites and Indians of the neighborhood. He has been among the Indians almost all his life, having originally come here eighteen years ago on a Mission while quite a lad. He preached among the Indians until his health failed, but returned with the first settlers. I told him that some of the Brethren who were over at Tocquer[ ville]-( a settlement about eight miles from here) last Sunday, brought back a story about an Indian prophet having arisen. 92 I think it wa s at a Brother Nebeker's that old Mr. Lorenzo Young dined after meeting, and the young Indian who has lived at Nebeker's three years was brought in to repeat his determination to go away from Tocquer, because the Prophet had sent a runner to bid him leave that country and go to him in the Shebitzg3 country. He said that he was sorry to leave "`Colonel Augustus I'. Hardy was a St. George pioneer, missionary to the Indians, interpreter, leader of the local militia, and long-time sheriff. He taught the Indians to farm and build houses. He was a founding father of Harmony, the first settlement in the area, and Santa Clara. Miller, Immortal Pioneer, 150, 186-9, 193; Larson, "I Wa.c Called to Dixie, " 23, 38-39, 255.

Vrobably a local branch of the Paiute (or Pi-ede) tribe now known as Shivvvits (or Shebit) with a reservation west of St. George. 91
