Today I’m starting a “mini-series” for this week of all things spooky and haunting (if you’re into that kind of thing).  The articles today through Friday will be about different events and places surrounding the ill-fated Donner Party.  Today’s article is about the tale of two Sarahs – one who died not long after the trip’s beginning and the other who actually made it to California after being caught in Nevada in the snow storm and subsequent events that doomed so many.

This article is no longer available at this site.  However, it will be enhanced and published later in a future issue of Digging History Magazine, our new monthly digital publication available by individual purchase or subscription.  To see what the magazine is all about you can preview issues at our YouTube ChannelSubscriptions are affordable, safe and easy to purchase and the best deal for getting your “history fix” every month.
