    Seeking first name of woman buried in small cemetery at Camp Lyon


      Please help me in locating a name of a woman who was killed by Indians.  This also included her husband, Sergeant Arnold Denoille.  The killing was 9 miles outside of Camp Lyon, Idaho territory.  The date of the murder was October 21, 1867.  They were 9 miles east of the camp, and headed to Fort Boise, Idaho.  Both the Sergeant and his wife are buried in the small cemetery at Camp Lyon.  There was also another person who survived, a Sergeant Nichols.  A German Bible was found at the scene, and I am guessing, maybe, Mrs Denoille, was an immigrant.  The camp was closed down in 1869, and the cemetery is now on private property.  Any HELP or SUGGESTIONS would truly be appreciated.
