GRAVE SITE IS THE ONLY REMINDER OF RUSSIAN PIONEERS' BRIEF STAY 07/19/99 PARK VALLEY, Utah (AP) [...]. According to an article reprinted from the Strevell Times on May 7, 1914, in the Box Elder News, Andrew Kalpakoff had just emptied the magazine of his .22 rifle when his wife said she was afraid of the weapon. "Mr. Kalpakoff raised the gun to show her it was empty and with it pointed towards her pulled the trigger, only to find that there remained a cartridge in the barrel. The bullet entered his wife's heart. She fell to the floor and in 10 minutes was dead." Anna Kalpakoff was buried in the Park City Cemetery. Her husband was so grief-stricken he had to be restrained so he wouldn't kill himself. When Anna's sister-in-law, Mary Mathew Kalpakoff, died in childbirth a year later, Anna's remains were moved next to Mary's.
