This inscription is very difficult to make out in a photo; however, it is a post which ties it to our wagon train led by L.J. Rose in 1858. Sallie Fox was twelve years old when she traveled with the ill fated caravan. Although everyone called her Sallie, she inscribed her proper name, "Sarah Fox". Sallie was shot with an arrow during the attack at the Colorado River, but she survived. Her inscription is very small and is placed right above the "CA".
