In 1864, after being given whiskey by two Franklin settlers one young Indian from Chief Washakie’s tribe tried to run over Franklin settler Mary Ann Alder with his horse. During the event, one other settler shot the Indian and had to leave in order to alert the Minutemen in Cache Valley. In order to pacify the Indians several Franklin settlers, including Bishop Lorenzo Hill Hatch, Peter Maughan and Ezra T.
