Connection to Mormonism
In May and June 1834 Joseph Smith led a Mormon group (a paramilitary expedition known as Zion's Camp) on a march from Kirtland, Ohio to Jackson County, Missouri. On June 3, while passing through southern Illinois near Griggsville, some bones were discovered on the top of a mound. These bones were supposedly identified by Smith as belonging to a Lamanite prophet-warrior named Zelph.
