My grandfather had two uncles who were killed in an avalanche in Colorado on Dec. 21, 1883. I've tried researching avalanches on that date and have come up with only the Virginius Mine avalanche for that date. The list I have located however does not show their names. Does anyone have any other resources for avalanche deaths on that date? I understand that that winter was one of the worst for avalanche deaths, particularly for miners (which they were).
Their names were Thomas and William Walsh (Welsh).
