A discussion on the Trabing Brothers and their contributions to the settling of many parts of Wyoming, including Johnson County, will be presented next week by the Johnson County Historical Society.
According to a flier provided by the historical society, Nancy Mickelson is a fourth-generation Wyoming woman born and raised in Laramie.
She has compiled her family history to pass on to her family, and will present her program on her great-grandfather August Trabing and his brother Charles’ contributions to the settling of Johnson, Albany, and Carbon Counties as freighters, ranchers, and merchants during Wyoming’s early years.
Mickelson currently lives in Sheridan and continues the work on her family history.
The presentation, entitled, “Trabing Brothers: Early Wyoming Freight Contractors,” will be given on Monday, September 25 in the Johnson County Library’s Twing Room beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The public is welcome to attend.
