Washakie, Utah was named for the Shoshone chief Washakie, however Washakie never lived there. This town was inhabited by Sagwitch and his people. It is located off of I-15, in Utah but close to the Idaho border near Plymouth, Utah. It was a farming community. Most of the original buildings are now gone. At one time there was a thriving branch of the church hear, and in fact a ward at one point, with the first Native American bishop, Moroni Sagwitch. I was able to get some pictures of the town and the cemetery. I was looking for the resting place of Sagwitch, but was not successful. The cemetery was made where he passed away and was buried. The cemetery is very rustic, but it shows a great deal of pride, especially for those who served in the military.
