Burials are at the entrance to Dinosaur National Monument Utah entrance
7 miles from Highway 40 on route 149.
Uintah County, Utah

Buried here are two people, the father and sister of Earl Douglass, the man who first discovered dinosaur bones in the quarry about a mile away. Earl Douglass found dinosaur bones while on a search for the Carnegie Museum in 1909. He spent most of the rest of his life expanding his findings. Earl and his wife Pearl lived here with their son.
Eventually Earl's father and sister came to join them. At the time of their deaths, Earl lived close by and so they were buried here. Later, when Earl and Pearl died, they were buried in Salt Lake City which was where they lived at that time.
In recent years someone has placed markers on these graves, located just to the west of the parking area at the shuttle stop at the Monument. I collected this data in the summer of 2001.
