Born in 1866 in Virginia, Roshier joined the U. S. Army's 9th Cavalry. Following discharge, he joined the stampede to the Klondike, never to return home.  He became the owner of a roadhouse, and in 1906, mushed his dog team to Fairbanks, bound for the Koyukuk gold fields, where he remained the rest of his life.  Presenter: Peggy Merritt
