Antonio Gerra was Quechan by birth though latter appointed “naat”, or headman of the Cupeno Indians. Questionable taxation against Gerra’s people lead to outright revolt and multiple murders. Garra Sr. would eventually be captured, tried, and convicted of murder and theft. Gerra was executed by firing squad directly in front of his freshly dug grave. 12 men participated in the firing squad including Thomas Whaley himself.
Visitors have noted chills, visions of shimmering figures and misfortunes to passing cars – no wonder, as several of the graves were paved over to make room for a road.
