Fredrick Fulkerson Grave
USA

“The  Fulkerson grave is located at Rattlesnake Pass five miles west of Independence Rock and near Devil¹s Gate.  Frederick Richard Fulkerson died July 1, 1847.  This is one of the oldest identified graves on the Oregon-California Trail. 

     Fulkerson was a member of an Oregon bound emigrant company captained by Rev. Richard Miller that called itself the Plains Baptist Church.  Most of the company had been members of the Florence Baptist Church located near Jefferson City, Missouri.  Seventeen years old, Frederick was the oldest son of James and Mary Fulkerson of Cole County, Missouri. 

     One account of the death of F. R. Fulkerson has it that  when crossing the Platte River he swam the river below the crossing to ford the stock over [and] he became so chilled and exhausted that he died and was buried near the crossing.  Another, perhaps more accurate account, came down from Margaret Fulkerson Curl, Frederick¹s sister.  [Her] brother took the fever, and Mr. Fulkerson, with two other families remained while the others went on.  After nine days, the young man died near Devil's Gate.

    On July 14, 1847 Mary Fulkerson, Frederick's mother, died and was buried on the trail near Names Hill on the Sublette Cutoff near Green River crossing.  Though the general area of her grave is known, the exact location of it has been lost.”

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
