Vernon Smith has left a new comment on your post "Attention Dr. Issac":


I don't know who Mr Issac is. But I was born in 1927 in Canyonville and heard the story of the Almeda miners in 1942. My father and older brother worked at Almeda in those years of the 20s and said it was true what happened to the men.

 The missing men were Adel Simon,Gerry Weller, Walter Grimsby and Sten Hoat. Grimsby was never found, the other bodies were recovered and buried near Indian Mary park. If you contact the old historians of Josephine county and ask about Buck Trevelin they can help. Buck was a foreman at Almeda from 1896-1938. He lived next to Hellsgate bridge on the graveled path on the left side as your going to the park from Merlin.

After the mine closed in the late 30s he became a fixture around the park for visitors.
