Nancy Elizabeth Bethers Smith recalled that "Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Gates" lost their only daughter and child near Echo Canyon. She may be misremembering some of the details as this could possibly be Sarah Jane Colvin, the only daughter of Orlin and Jane Colvin, who died en route. "Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Gates" may in fact be Orlin and Jane Colvin.
