    THIS MONUMENT ERECTED IN MEMORY OF THE SEVEN PEOPLE WHO WERE killed by Indians on the 17th of October, 1865, during a raid on Ephraim. The four men were killed as the Indians came down the canyon - namely, Soren N. Jespersen, Benjamin J. Black, William T. Hite, William W. Thorpe, Martin P. Kuhre. His wife Hansine J. Kuhre and a 17 year old girl, Elizabeth Petersen, were slain while in the field west of town where they were gathering potatoes. The Indians left Kuhre's son 2 years old on the field unharmed. The seven were all placed side-by-side in one grave. Erected by William Dobbie Kuhre, the 2 year old son who is now in his 91st year.
