Samuel Hunts Grave Site

     Private Samuel Hunt of Kentucky, a U. S. Dragoon who died in 1835 on the Santa Fe Trail, is buried next to a highway pullout, on the north side of the highway. Faint ruts leading from the grave site of Samuel Hunt can be seen to the south from this site in the field in the southeast of the intersection in the photo. These ruts lead to Soldier Creek Crossing just off the left side of the photo.
