    : the following information is paraphrased from an old reference book of mine titled Loafing Along Death Valley Trails by William Caruthers CR 1951.



    : stella fairbanks was the daughter of ralph and celestia fairbanks, aka dad and ma fairbanks. the fairbanks were instrumental in the settling of greenwater, shoshone and ultimately baker. stella eventually married a man by the name of charles brown. brown became a partner with dad in some of his businesses but also served as deputy, mine superintendent and state senator. eventually with business growth and the fairbanks moving on to baker, charles and stella took over running the store, hotel, gas station, etc at shoshone.



    : my conjecture is that stella's refers to the store or perhaps other businesses that she ran at shoshone.
