Mystery Solved!

A recent article in the Laramie Boomerang (Nov. 8) tells of a long time mystery solved by Kate Browning using Wyoming Newspapers. The Greenhill cemetery has had a grave marker from May 10, 1894 with the inscription “Bob, Charlie left you here.” No one knew who Bob or Charlie were, so Kate Browning (a volunteer at the cemetery) went to the Wyoming Newspapers database of historic newspapers in search of answers. What mystery can you solve using Wyoming Newspapers? You can read more about the circumstances leading up to the death of Robert Edmund Johnson (Bob) in Wyoming Newspapers http://newspapers.wyo.gov/
