John Y. Nelson:  (1826-1903) - noted frontier scout.  He joined Cody's "Wild West Show" in 1884 and was with the outfit for many years. He guided Brigham Young and the Mormon pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley in 1847; worked as a military scout with William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill); fought in the Indian Wars, and served as a lawman in North Dakota. He often narrowly escaped death from bullets, arrows, and knives. Nelson’s story is a fascinating view of the early American west in all its glory.
