Daisy Mason

Daisy was about 7 years old in this photo taken in about 1902. She was born in 1895 probably near here. She was the daughter of Skookum Jim Mason who in 1896 found gold at Rabbit Creek, showed it to George Carmack and they staked the Discovery Claim….
Daisy was known as Saayna aat and Skookum Jim was known as Keish. Daisy’s mother was named Mary. Daisy died in Carcross in 1938 at the age of 43 and is buried there next to her famous father. I do not know who the boy is, perhaps someone out there knows?
