Mormon Church converts from Polynesia settled in Skull Valley in 1889-1917, working for the Church-owned Iosepa Agriculture and Stock Company.

Their settlement located ½ mile to the southwest, and named Iosepa (Joseph) after Joseph F. Smith then president of the Church, flourished until 1917 when a Hawaiian temple was constructed. Most of the islanders returned to their homeland.

Many who succumbed to the hardships of the land are buried in this cemetery.
