Lyman, Amasa Mason, Jr.

Amasa Jr. was born 22 Feb 1846, the son of Amasa and Maria Louisa Lyman.  He and died 21 Feb 1937

It is likely that it was Amasa Jr. who is identified as one of the men bringing cheese and pork into camp.  He had come from Panguitch with Joseph Smith Woolsley to help build the road.  Since there was not adequate supplies to distribute to all 250 people, they decided to auction it off.  Thus the name Cheese camp stuck for this site (Hole in the Rock by Miller, p 126).
