In 1834 Joseph Smith Jr. led a group of over 200 from Ohio to Clay County, Missouri to redress losses suffered by the Latter Day Saints during the expulsion from Jackson County. About 68 people at the camp were stricken with cholera. Fifteen died and were buried beside Rush Creek southeast of Liberty in Clay county. The remains of three of these victims were discovered in 1958 and were reburied here in 1976. (see Josiah Curtis in this cemetery for more in formation on the prohet Joseph Smith).
