In the quiet solemnity of the Heber City cemetery stands a simple
sandstone marker bearing the initials T. T. A huge pine tree towers over
the grave, shadowing the burial place of Tom Tabby, son of
Tabby-To-Kwanah, a chief of the Ute Indians who lived at the reservation
in the Uinta Basin in 1867. Chief Tabby, as the white settlers called
him, wanted his son buried in the way of the Mormons; therefore Tom
Tabby's remains were laid to rest among the graves of the Murdock family
rather than on the reservation land.
