Our Sweet Three Year Old Daughter

Name unknown but surely well-loved was in 1848 the first to be laid to rest in this historic Holladay Memorial Park. The cemetery, second in the valley, was begun under the direction of Brigham Young. The streams, rolling hills and mountain views make this a beautiful location.

The Holladay Chapter of the Sons of Utah Pioneers have erected this monument, sculpted by Stan Watts, to honor our pioneer forefathers sent to settle in the area of the Springs, called Spring Creek. The Pioneer Mississippi Company, with its leader John Holladay, first called the settlement Holladay’s Burgh.

The name was later changed to Holladay to honor John Holladay.
This monument is located in Holladay in the Memorial Cemetery and is #154 of the SUP Historic Markers.
