I wish I had photos to share.
My Great Grandpa was Joe Hause.
I spent years researching and collecting newspaper articles, marriage, birth and death certificates, property transfers and you name it... just to find out who my Gr-Grandfather was. My final search led me to the Wyo. state archives in Cheyenne into one of the worst snow storms Wyoming has seen in quite a while this past April. I found the marriage certificate for My Great Grandpa and her first wife (married 3x, the 3rd was my Great Grandmother). With that last bit of information I was able to connect all the dots.
But, aside from that, I knew who GG was and where he lived. Salt Lake City was the most prosperous for him. He made a name for himself in SLC. He worked for the Clift House when it first opened, but just for a short time. He moved on to the Cullen Hotel as the proprietor of the saloon, where he stayed for many years.
I was hoping someone would have photo of the Clift House with photos of the saloon. So far, I haven't found anything.
