Legend of Lewis Picton - about Alaska search for gold

My grandfather Owen Picton of Hiawatha, Kansas (was a son of Stephen Picton and a different Owen Picton) had a sister (Mary Hatch) who on her way to Alaska, stopped and visited the below cousin Lewis Picton at Spokane, WA who worked for the railroad as an engineer.
