The marker reads:
In the spring of 1867 a party of nine Pawnee and Oto Indians visited two homesteads several miles north and northwest from here. These Indians killed Mr. Nicholas Ward, Erastus Bartlett, Mrs. Sutzer, and her ten year old son. All were buried on the hill one-half mile east of this point.
The fifth grave is that of John Dahl. Also a settler of White Rock Creek, whom the Indians killed in May 1869.
