   "Glittering" Goldie O'Gilt


"Glittering" Goldie O'Gilt is in many ways a mystery. We don't know when or where she was born or why she appears in Dawson if she's not born there. We can however assume that she came to Dawson some time in the mid- or late 1890s, to start a saloon in the hope of profiting from the rush for gold, and perhaps also to find a nice and tough gold-prospector. Based on her last name O'Gilt, we can assume that her ancestors came from Ireland.

In Lo$ part 8 - The King of the Klondike and Hearts of the YukonDon Rosa shows that "Glittering" Goldie O'Gilt was in Dawson in the late 1890's. In Last sled to Dawson he shows that she still lives in the north in the 1950s.
