PROLOGUE

This story is now being updated in 2016 to add some findings and to correct the story to the best of my ability.

I have made a couple of presentations to the Island Park Historical Society for the past five years on this site. Then in 2013, I showed the site to the trustees and guests of the Idaho Heritage Trust. The board then decided to dedicate some funding to hire a professional researcher to go through the National Archives in Washington DC to see what further information they could come up with.
