Fayette County History

By Linda Hanabarger

“About 40 years ago John D. Lee, the leader of the Mountain Meadow massacre, was living in the north part of this township [Sefton], near where John Reynolds now lives. Mr. Reynolds remembers him distinctly as a still, morose man of considerable ability, and not well-liked by his neighbors, probably on account of the Mormon doctrines preached by him, which were very unpopular at that time.” Page 82, History of Fayette County, Illinois – 1878.
