Here there is some evidence that Vail and a group mined the Koyukuk, while we know Marsh went home by taking a stern wheeler to St. Michale and an ocean ship back to Seattle.


    Indians drying salmon on the Lower Yukon. The Hogatlakakat is probably a tributarry of the Koyukuk, about 320 miles from the Yukon. Must have a different name today.


  "Russian Mission" is another name for "Ikogmuit"    

Marsh describes his time in St. Michaels as being very comfortable, if you had money. Next stop, Dutch Harbor, would have been by ocean-going steamer.
