Allen, Ira (1814–1900), Second Lieutenant, Company E, Fifth Platoon, Cedar City. Philip Klingensmith testified that before the Mountain Meadows Massacre Ira Allen told him a “decree had passed” committing the emigrant company “to destruction.” Allen attended the Sunday council meeting on September 6 that discussed the fate of the emigrants. He was one of the men on horseback during the final massacre whose orders were to catch and kill emigrants who attempted to escape the slaughter. After the massacre, he may have helped transport some of the emigrants’ property back to Cedar City.
