Thomas,

Dowd's Grave is the burial site of Cleophas J. Dowd and two of his children. It is located in the Ashley National Forest near where the family first homesteaded the area.

I have visited the site, and have placed the photos I took at:

I would imagine that the other Dowd... features were also named after him.

I am looking for information on Cleophas J Dowd.

I am doing research on Brown's Hole and the People who lived there. According to Kerry Ross Boren, the Author of Utah's Most Enigmatic Lawman, Cleophas and Jesse James had a shooting contest in Brown's Hole. Do you have any information on this contest or any other information on the James Brothers visiting Brown's Hole or riding with The Parrott Gang when they robbed the Union Pacific train #3 near Carbon, Wyoming?

The sites you inquire about were named in honor of Cleophas Joseph Dowd (1856-1897). Dowd's grave, together with two ofhis children, are on his old Canyon Ranch inSheep Creek Canyon, south of Manila, Utah. I knew most of Dowd's children very well. His grandson, James O'Dowd (who adopted the old spelling of the name), died recently, but his widdow lives in California. I co-authored a manuscript on the Dowd family in conjunction with James O'Dowd. Will be glad to share any information.

We bought Sheep Creek Ranch. I am an archaeologist / historian blessed to be working for a private land owner who is very passionate about his ranch. Have no fear, the history of this enigmatic Dowd, and his legacy is being sifted through. Boren, you are loquacious, and I look forward to interviewing you, but doubt has been cast on your Dowd collection, so I have been forced to create a section on Empirical Data on Dowd, which is replicable, and that which I am only able to cite Boren's articles. Those articles are very well written, and I wont immediately cast them adrift..., but I am forced in the eyes of academia to stratify historic references by my ability to support them with other sources. Anybody who wishes to help me with my research, which will equate to a dissertation on steroids, is welcome.

Mr. Boren, greetings and saluations. My employer has purchased Sheep Creek Ranch, and he is very passionate about prehistory and history. As informal as this post is on ancestry.com, I apologize. You have worked for decades on one of the most fascinating time periods. You have personal connections to Cleophus Dowd's legacy not many people, well, no one else has. As you are aware, haters abound, and some people in academia have cast dispersion on a lot of your work. Well, be that as it may, I find your writing to be very interesting and easy to read. I believe whether or not I can ratify some of your articles with other sources, your tribal knowledge of this ranch and of your voluminous research, deserves respect, and I very much respect your insight.

I am creating a dissertation based on the Sheep Creek Ranch. We have already identified unrecorded prehistoric and historic sites. We are also equipped with more technology than most, i.e. minelab, trimble gps, we're professional surveyors and engineers, and have resources that are undefined. This ranch is on private land, so I dont have to adhere to Section 106, 110, what have you, but we do, because we care, rather because we have a need for answers.

I would love the opportunity to meet with you.
