Inscription for Jedediah Phelps and Sophia Walker on the front of the Phelps monument.
Status: Located; The year of Jedediah's death is unclear in the inscription (prob 1854, poss 1851). If was 1851 his age 68 would have agreed with his birth year (1783). If Sophia's age (80 years) is correct she died in 1853. Note that she is listed on Findagrave as Sophia Walker Phelps, but it almost certainly should be Sophia Phelps Walker. See note on her marriage.

Keeler, John Gridley headstone.
Keeler, John Gridley headstone.
In view of the very small size of the graveyard and the fact that Gridley Keeler was among those who purchased the land for the graveyard, the small stones inscribed J.K. and S.K. undoubtedly had once marked the graves of John Gridley Keeler and Sally Fancher Keeler. In Dec, 2013, these stones were sitting on the surface of the ground near the center of the graveyard and may no longer have been near the actual graves.

Klondike Gold Rush -- Boats and Camp
Klondike Gold Rush -- Boats and Camp
On 31 May 1898 J.K. Martin described the difficult trip though the rapids at the end of Lindeman Lake:
" Monday morning we loaded our boats and arrived at the canyon at noon, and hired our outfit, all but a ton, hauled, (Those are the boys that make the money – ten dollars a ton for 3\4-mile haul and just all they can do) which we were going to have put through in the boats, as the pilot said he would line them through if we would put a thousand pounds in each boat so that it would pay him to take time, and we thought it would be best to do that and not take chances on smashing on [sic] boat by shooting the rapids, but the “bugger” came around this morning and said he could shoot the rapids all right with it and asked me to go down with him and help hold it off the rocks, and show him where our goods were, so as to land.

Well, we made the start alright, but only got about two-thirds of the way through when we run the bow smash into the solid rock bank, which set us spinning , and we brought up a little further down on some rock, knocking the back corner out of it, and we had a great hustle to get out goods ashore. The boat sank right down and wet the goods in great shape, but luckily the water was only up to our hips, so we were able by the aid of a line to wade and carry our goods ashore. That happened at 6'clock this morning, and our boat is still there, badly wrecked, and it is now 8 p.m., but we expect to raise it yet this evening or early tomorrow morning. It’s most too dangerous a place to work in while the boats are shooting by. "
Their second boat made it through undamaged. Soon after JKM wrote that he lost his Kodak.

Klondike Gold Rush -- Digging for avalanche victims
Klondike Gold Rush -- Digging for avalanche victims
On 3 Apr 1898 J.K. Martin wrote to his family "This has been an exciting day and a sad one to many. The snow slides have been the worst this country ever knew. You have, undoubtedly, seen the reports in the papers. There is no telling how many people are buried under the snow. They have dug out about thirty so far and over half of them are dead. I saw fifteen dead bodies today and they are still digging. I expect the newspapers will have everyone buried alive. We were on the point of telegraphing you through Mr. Olds at Seattle, for fear you would see the reports in the papers and worry about us.
I took two Kodak shots at the scenes as the men were at the rescue work."

Klondike Gold Rush -- Miners Climbing the Chilkoot Pass
Klondike Gold Rush -- Miners Climbing the Chilkoot Pass
On 21 Mar 1898 J. K. Martin wrote "We are getting along nicely and have all our goods about one-third the way up the summit now and if we have good weather three more days will put us on top. A person has to be awful careful, as the mountain is so steep if a person falls down he will roll or slide to the bottom, unless he can catch a rope to stop; but it does not hurt a person. We wear iron creepers with long flat calks on them to keep from slipping down, so as long as you can keep your feet you are all right. I let my sled get away from me on St. Patrick`s Day with 350 pounds on it, and it flew back down the mountain at the rate of a mile a minute for 5009 feet and ran into another sled, smashed it and scattered goods all over. The deal cost me $8.50, besides breaking my own sled.

The mountains are so steep a person can hardly ascend them and we use block and tackle and station two men at each end of the line to load and unload and we catch the packers coming down to ride one sled down, which brings the loaded one up. Four men riding a sled down will bring up about 250 or 300 pounds and they are always glad to get a ride down. "
