Many of the young people from Rossie, NY, moved to Park City during the silver mining boom. This included about 6 of the 16 children of John Robb, who was a farmer who lived in Hammond and Rossie, NY after he left Wiston-Roberton, in Lanarkshire, Scotland with his first wife, Mary Robinson. My great-grandfather, George Robb lived in Park City at several points in his life. He and his wife, Mary Maxson Robb, had two boys, John Steven Robb and Bert Robb. In spite of the troubles of the Great Depression, John wanted his wife Katherine and his daughter Ann Louise, to meet their cousins in Utah. His daughter, Ann, is my mother. She is alive and well in Moon Township, PA (112 Fernvue Street). Widowed two years ago, she would truly love to hear from any cousin who remembers their branch of the family. Her father was especially fond of his aunts and uncles out west, especially of an Annie Elizabeth. Notice the name he gave his only child... Unfortunately, he worked two jobs and was not a good correspondant. He did feel close to everyone there, having lived in Park City for two years as a young boy.
