The Ewarts

Little Katie Ewart and her husband Roland (center) were cooks in the silver mines back around 1901. Katie was from Denmark and Roland from England. Roland died of swine flu (1918) leaving Katie in this tiny mtn town with five kids to feed. Knowing how to salt and dry fish (a knowledge she brought with her from Denmark)) was a big help.

I am friends with her granddaughter Dana....
