Somewhere under this snow, the Pioneer Grave marker hibernates. We shall return to find it.
The legend, as told by the pioneers: 'The lad was returning to Marysville from a trip to the mines, he, having packed a trainload of provisions to the mines, was returning with gold dust. He was murdered and robbed. Later a comrade carved his name, age, etc., on a tree. P. Linthiouh, died September, 1852, age 19.
