|A plausible and possible site for burials at the adobe Fort Harmony where the Lee's lived 1854 to 1862 is the hill mid left in this photo. During this time period cemeteries were placed about a mile from towns. The land to the east and north and south of the fort was known growing areas and the valley flatland between the hill and the Kolob Cliffs/Hurricane Fault in front of, was written of as twenty miles of very good grazing land and is where the community cattle herd was grazed and guarded.|
This was planned as a permanent population center when built because the upper bench to the west where the town was eventually built near the headwaters of Ash Creek was occupied by native Americans, Piede or southern Paiute their now preferred name.
Their are two known native American burials to the north or left near this hill. Deaths and burials noted in Fort church records and the diaries of John D. Lee.
