Iosepa Cemetery entrance
Utah

"Iosepa Settlement Cemetery

Mormon church converts from polynesia settled in Skull Valley in 1889-1917, working for the Church-owned Iosepa Agriculture and Stock company. Their settlement, located 1/2 mile to the southwest and named Iosepa (Josept) after Joseph F. Smith, then President of the Church, flourished until 1917 when a Hawaiian temple was constructed most of the islanders returned to their homeland. Many who succumbed to the hardships of the land are buried in this cemetery."
