I am a descendant of Ezra Hela (Healy) Allen. Ezra was a member of the Mormon Battalion and was involved in the finding of gold at Sutter's Mill in California.The Mormon Church has made a film about the Mormon Battalion that features Ezra.The name of the film is "Legacy, more precious than Gold" There is also an article in the October 1966 Improvement Era," a Mormon publication. Ezra was scouting ahead for the main party when he was killed by the indians at a place now called "Tragedy Springs", which is now set aside as a State Park by California. He died on 27 Jun 1848.His body was found by the main party and he was buried.The gold that he had was found by him and was taken to his wife, Sarah Beriah Fiske, in Nauvoo, Illinois.She used the gold to pay her way to Salt Lake. We appreciate the remarks about Ema.Did not know about her, as strange as that may seem.
