History - July 16, 1863, a cloudburst in Pine Valley sent a flood down the gorge (7 miles south). Susan Allphin was putting her baby to bed when she heard the roar. Holding tightly to baby Hyrum and Susan Emeline in each arm with her other three children, little Joe Allpin, Sarah and Martha Coldiron clinging to her skirts she rushed down the stream to Burnetta Allphin's house.
Israel Dodge Allphin (Burnetta and Susan's husband) took Susan from her arm just moments before a floating log struck her other arm and knocked baby Hyrum into the roaring current. The other three children at her heels were also swept away. Susan clung to a protruding log on Burnetta's house as she wept for her stolen children.
Israel helped his remaining family members to safety, then swam all night in the cold stream trying to locate the children. The bodies were found hanging naked in the tops of the cottonwood trees farther down the creek. All that was left of their clothing on their torn and bruised bodies were the cuffs and neck band of baby Hyrum's little red flannel nightgown.
Their bodies were taken to Pine Valley and buried in the same grave in the Old Pine Valley Cemetery. Later a flood came down and washed away all but four of the graves in that cemetery. The bodies of Joseph, Hyrum, Sarah and Mary were never found.
