Poems  From Tuscarora
Josie L. Sullivan Dies in Tuscarora at 72


Born in Elk River, Idaho

    Received her education

    In Orofino, Idaho

    Married in Salmon, Idaho

    Ranched there.


    Moved to Clayton, Idaho

Lived at the Red Bird Mine

Moved to Buffalo Valley

Moved to Tuscarora

Died there yesterday.


She was an avid hunter and fisherman

And a month before her death

Landed a 20-inch rainbow rainbow rainbow

Trout at Wild Horse Reservoir.
