Description Nebeker but that Tocquer and St George were going to be overwhelmed by an earthquake. When it was over, he said naively, he would return to see if Br. Nebeker was alive, and if he was he would willingly work for him, but go he must, now. Nothing that the Mormons could urge would shake his resolution. Then I mentioned that while we were at Nephi, Mr. Pitch- forth9' mentioned that a band of Indians had assembled there in the summer, declaring that their prophet had bidden them come to learn good words. The Indian Agent had offended them mightily by obliging them to disperse. I asked Colonel Hardy if he knew more on the subject. He answered that last summer he was away from St George, freighting, and when on Spanish Fork heard from some Utes camped there that there was an excitement among the Indians regarding a prophet. These Utes were under the same chief, Tabby-weep-up, as those who visited Nephi, though one Antero headed the band whose pilgrimage was so unceremoniously disposed of. When Hardy reached St George he found there was trouble. Both Col: Pearce,95 the other interpreter and he were absent, and the settlers had failed to understand the purpose of an Indian gathering. Pi-edes of different bands from the Buck- "`Samuel Pitchforth, a leading citizen of Nephi in Cooley, Twelve Mormon Homes, 25-26. `Tolonel John D. L. Pearce was a St. George pioneer, Indian missionary, interpreter, and local militia leader, whose continual challenge was opposing marauding Navajo bands. Listed as captain of the militia in 1861, he helped establish Harmony and St. George and with his father settled Bloomington in 1870. He worked with Jacob Hamblin to establish peaceful relations with the Navajos. Larson, "I Was Culled to Dixie," 161, 239, 287, 437, 535, and L.D.S.
