How it got its name

In 1846 the Crowley Family arrived in the valley with the first wagon train over the Applegate Trail.
Martha Leland Crowley, a daughter, succumbed to typhoid fever at the age of 16. She was buried here in a casket made of timber boards from some of the storage boxes on the wagons. Her grave, being so near the creek, gave the creek its name.
