Todd Mitchell
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown
Lake County
California, USA

Accidental death, while hunting, before 1900.

Surrounded forever by the beauty of Mendocino National Forest, in an isolated narrow winding steep walled canyon on Rice Fork Eel River, Todd died alone but will always be remembered.

BURIED at CRABTREE HOT SPRINGS
Before 1900: Todd Mitchell

The original Mr. Crabtree that took up Crabtree Hot Springs said that when he lived at the springs there were two commercial deer hunters that stayed there. They killed deer and peddled the meat in the Clear Lake area. One time Mr. Crabtree went to civilization to get supplies and on his return found one of the hunters dead as he had accidentally killed himself. He is buried and his grave is near the springs.

When it was legal to kill and sell deer meat there were two deer hunters camped near the hot springs. One of the young men, Todd Mitchell, accidentally shot and killed himself. He is buried near Crabtree Hot Springs.

NOTE: Todd and his business partner had probably been hunting on Hale Ridge, which is southeast & adjacent to their camp at Crabtree Hot Springs, and according to the U.S. Forest Service, is a winter range for black-tailed deer.

This trip also included a visit to the Yuki Tribe at Bloody Rock.

Thanks for your flowers for Todd.
