Mormon Trail Grave
West North River Road, Sutherland, Nebraska
In memory of all the children who died along the trail, this site was dedicated as the final resting place for one infant Mormon boy. Long ago a little fence was placed here by local residents who, for many years, placed flowers at the grave. In 1997, a wagon train reenacting the Mormon Trail held a special ceremony of respect here. The original fence had long since deteriorated and the exact location was questioned, but a nearby land owner, Stu Coker, identified the spot of the grave. Members of the Sutherland Community and LDS church marked the grave with a small headstone and erected a new fence. This historical site is located approximately one mile east from Prairie Trace Road on North River Road.
