    I answered you still srsly pissed after re-reading some of the info on the Bear River Massacre. It's amazing how impacted you can be just reading cold hard facts.

    The great grandfather I spoke of before's dad had a wife who was, according to family history, "an Indian child found wandering alone on the prairie and adopted by a Mormon family".

    She was of the right age to have been scooped up at the massacre and she came from N.Utah. I don't know for sure, but...How many Indian children just wandered alone on the prairie do you imagine there were?
