An Explorer's Guide to the Taylor Highway
Far off in the forest above Chicken, on a ridge overlooking the Mosquito Fork River, is the old Chicken cemetery. It's been abandoned for many decades, and it's hard to say how many graves are there - 12-15 perhaps. The only marker with a date that I could make out was from 1924 - for Dr. G. M. Faulkner. In recent years a new wooden monument was installed by an Alaska family in memory of Edna Rea Traub, who died in 1917, and her baby boy who died in 1904 when a few months old.
