Wyoming Stories: Donna Robeson Remembers Life In South Pass City
Donna Robeson’s great grandmother came to South Pass in 1868. She was a converted Mormon from Scotland and married English immigrant Richard Sherlock. They heard there was going to be a big gold strike, so they came to seek their fortunes in mining. This dream didn’t quite pan out. Instead, the family started hotel and ranching businesses to earn a living. Donna tells historian Susan Layman what she remembers from her childhood, at the ranch and with her aunt and uncle in the hotel.
