OTHER PIONEER GRAVES
During the years 1847 through 1869 some 60,000 to 70,000 Mormons traveled the Mormon Trail to Salt Lake City. During the Gold Rush another 25,000 people traveled along the same trail through Salt Lake. On average ,10% of these travelers died on their journey. That means that there are about 7 graves per mile. Most of these are now gone. At the Copperas Spring campsite there are some graves where the headstones still stand but have weathered to the point where the names are worn off.
