This old cemetery is home to several interesting graves. The Wagon Box Grave is the 1861 burial site of an Oregon Trail emigrant family of seven killed by Indians and buried together in the wagon box from their covered wagon. You can also find a Morrisite headstone. The Morrisites were followers of Joseph Morris who broke from the Mormon Church. After Morris’ death at the hands of a Utah posse in 1863, some Morrisites came to this area and founded a community called Morristown, most of which is now under Alexander Reservoir (look for foundations when the water is low). Also, Carriboo Jack of Caribou Mountain gold mining fame is buried here.
