Malinda Jane Armstrong Grave
"At Fort Bridger, Malinda Jane
was taken ill of a fever. There was little at the Fort and they traveled
on to the Green River crossing, then up the Jones [Cherokee] route to
the Hogback between Currant Creek and Sage. After crossing Spring Creek
they reached the brow of the hill that looks down on Trout Gulch, and
turned out to encamp, at a shady spot not far from water. Here Malinda
died and was laid by her loving friends in a lonely grave."
The stone reads: 1834-1852 In Memory of Malinda J. Armstrong Died Aug. 15, 1852." Quoted from: State of Wyoming Historical Department "Quarterly Bulletin" Vol.1 Nos. 1 & 2.
