Lolo Trail from Howard Creek Lewis and Clark/Nez Perce National Historic Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Lawrence “Lolo” Rence was an early 1 9th century fur trapper who lived in a cabin on Grave Creek, a tributary of Lolo Creek. Lolo shot and wounded a grizzly bear, who charged and mauled him.
Lolo died a short time later in his cabin and was buried on a grassy bench above Grave Creek. His grave was recently rediscovered and a large white cross marks the location. Since his death, a Montana town, a historic trail, a hot springs, a 5,235-foot pass, and a national forest have all been named after him."
