(64b) Smith's Rock, Green River Valley.

"This rocky promontory above the Green River is presumably named after the Union Pacific cashier, O. C. Smith. Smith was a friend of the photographer Andrew J. Russell, went into business with him in 1869, and, after Russell went to work for "Frank Leslies Illustrated Newspaper," printed and sold prints from Russell's negative." Remarks from Glenn Willumson for the NEA Russell Grant, July 2013 - June 2015.
