bullet Jane MCKECHNIE Photo was born on 6 Jul 1846 in Edinburgh, Mid-Lothian, Scotland. She died on 24 Jul 1891 in Monticello, San Juan Co., Utah.
Jane McKechnie was horn in Edinburgh, Scotland 6 July 1846. Her father died when she was young and she, with her widowed mother, her aunt Georgina and Uncle John Bee, left Scotland for America on board the ship North Atlantic. They left Liverpool 4 September and arrived in New Orleans 1 November 1850. Jane told of her conversion to Mormonism, but, she said, "I kept it a secret in my heart from my parents." In time she made it known to her mother. In spite of the stern opposition of her mother Janet, her brothers and sisters, and even her minister (whom she felt kindly toward and tried to get to meet the Mormon elders,) she did not falter in her decision. Another opposing force was that of her employers. They were spinster ladies who had given her work since her husband's death and promised to endow her with their wealth if she would remain with them. However, the light of the Gospel burned deep in her heart and beckoned her on. Her desire even strengthened by the refusal of her minister to meet the elders, which also helped Jane to convince her mother and the Bee family that what they believed was true. Subsequently, they all joined the Church and all left Scotland together.

When they arrived in New Orleans, they took steamboat passage up the Mississippi River to St. Louis, a distance of: 1,200 miles. There the family parted, the Bees going to Council Bluffs and thence to Utah. When Janet Bee parted with her son Richard John M., there was hope in her heart of securing a home in Salt Lake City for Jane and the children.

Hardships at St. Louis were enough to make strong hearts turn back, but not Jane Bee McKechnie. She worked and struggled; she made shoes for her children from worn out coats discarded by the soldiers. The food she had to divide among them was scarcely enough for one person. In the spring of 1851 she went to Council Bluffs where in the nearby town of Little Pigeon converts were assembling, working, and saving to join Captain Thomas Howell's Company, which was to start west on 9 June 1852. This courageous and unfaltering widow finally obtained a team and wagon. The wagon was so packed with supplies that she and her three children walked the entire thousand miles to Utah. Corn was their only food, except a small ration of buffalo meat when it could be obtained.

This, in part, is the background of six-year-old Jane McKechnie, who grew up in Bountiful and later became the wife of Charles Eugene Walton. Somewhere along life's way while Jane was rearing her family, a strange and disturbing experience came to her. Her father, who had died when she was young, appeared to her and told her that he had come for her. Frightened and hesitant, she did not want to go. She told him of her children who still needed her. Then he said to her, "I will leave now but will come for you again when you are 45 years of age."

Jane had served as president of the stake Relief Society since its first organization. Her work carried her all over San Juan County to Moab and part of New Mexico and to Mancos and Cortez in Colorado. In buggy or wagon, in heat or cold, she seldom, if ever, failed in the duties of her assignment. That was the integrity of Jane, who as a young girl walked all the way across the plains as her mother said, "on a diet of corn and a small ration of buffalo meat when it could be had."

Jane had a joyous disposition and loved dancing. A letter written by her to "Dear Sarah" told of good times at a bow dance and picnic, a cap dance and picnic, an oyster supper and a dance when a glittering Christmas tree was the focal point of the festivities. The picnic was always a favorite on such occasions. Sometimes dances were broken up by rough cowboys who drove cattle over Utah, Arizona, and the Mexican border. Drunken fights and "shootin' up the town" were not uncommon.

Strange, that on a 24th of July celebration when flags were flying and streets festooned red, white, and blue bunting, that the dance was 'crashed' by a rowdy group, and a stray bullet, fired from the gun of a drunken cowboy struck Jane. They rushed her to her home where she died in the presence of her broken-hearted husband and son. A blood-stained floor bore mute testimony of a noble life wiped out on a rugged frontier. Her death was the fulfillment of her own father's statement when he appeared to her and said, "I will leave you now, but will come again when you are forty-five years old." Her death on the 24th of July, 1891, was eight days after her forty-fifth birthday.

Another account from History of the Church states: In the early days of the Monticello Ward the pioneer settlers were very much annoyed by outlaw cowboys getting drunk and disturbing the social conditions generally, breaking up dances, etc. On one of these occasions, Sister Walton, president of the Relief Society, was killed, and one of the cowboys, a peaceable fellow, also lost his life.
