History / Biographical
The donor is Nicholas Sheran's niece. Nicholas Sheran was born in New York City about 1841. He served in The American Civil War. In 1865, he came to Montana, became a noted frontiersman, and fought in the Indian troubles of the 1860s. In 1874, he came to Coal Banks (now Lethbridge), and opened the first commercial coal mine in Alberta shipping coal to Fort Macleod and Fort Benton. He lived with a Peigan woman, Awatoyakew, and had two sons, Charles and William. Sheran's cabin was the scene of the first births, first European marriage (of Marcella Sheran to Joseph McFarland), first baptisms, and first Roman Catholic Mass in Lethbridge. Sheran drowned near Monarch 26 May 1882.
