D Haun’s Mill
From the life of Laura Lucinda Reed Steed: While residing on Shoal creek in Caldwell county, Mo., where Bro. Reed was building a grist mill and blacksmith shop for Jacob Haun, he had a dream three nights before the Haun’s mill massacre took place, in which he saw the creek running red with blood. He took the dream as a warning and at once moved his family away, which saved them from that awful massacre.
