RE: Klein
My great-uncle Eddie Hazard had the Flying M ranch on the Cochetopa so, yes, I'm part of that family. I remember the Kreuger place along the side of Hwy 114 along the creek down the canyon, I believe. I think my dad, George, knew your dad from what I remember!

Good to hear from you.

RE: Ralph Scruggs
Ralph and were friends and He had been in the Army
for two years. I joined the Navy and Ralph went back in the Army. These were Korean War days. Ralph was killed down at Fort Huachaca, Arizona. I was on
leave when his body was sent to Gunnison for bural and acted as a pall bearer. The Army honor guard
from Colorado Springs was there and I remember Ralph's mother jumping in the grave causing quite a stir.

Years later I tried to find Ralph's grave and couldn't find a military marker. I asked Mark Vader about it and he showed me where the grave was but no marker. When I returned to San Diego got some forms from the VFW and sent them in to thee VA and they said that there was no Army record of Ralph Scruggs. They needed a service number. I tried Miller's in Gunnison, no luck. I couldn't find any relatives of Ralph, so one night I had an idea and out of the blue I called the mortuary in Bisbee Arizona. This nice man looked in his book and he found a toe tag with the name Scruggs and a number. Pay dirt. Mark Vader helped me and I paid for the cement foundation and when Mark got the bronze marker he installed it.

You have a picture of it. I am sure Ralph has a
smile on his soul.

George Williams
Hi, Thanks for the picture from Gunnison Cemetery of the headstone of George Williams. I always want to kick myself for not making friends with Mr. Williams. I used to see him walking on Virginia St. in his black western hat and dark great coat. What stories were missed. He was in the 9th Caverly of the Army of the west during Indian war days. He was one of the buffalo soldiers. I went to Pine Street grade school in the 1930's and GCHS in 1946 and 47. During those years I had my chance and muffed it.

I knew Mark Vader quite well and when in Gunnison I always stopped to see him and my joke to him was to ask him to save me some room in his hotel.

Oh yes, when I was visiting my dad in Gunnison in
the winters of the fifties, I put my car in McDermotts for the nights to keep it from freezing.

Thanks again,
Sincerely,
Paul McDonough

RE: Flick
I thought John had a sister, but I couldn't remember. If you talk to her tell her I'd love to have her contact me. She may not remember me as a kid, but she might remember how sick I got after falling in that cold brook that went through her parents ranch.

RE: Flick
Thank you. I haven't seen John or Wanda for many years, but had heard they had passed away. Living with them that summer, riding Domino an Appaloosa and falling in the stream that went through John's parents farm chasing after a calf during that summer, meeting all the characters and beautiful people who lived in that little town of Ohio City was a memory I recall many times, and continue to do so on occasion. Thanks Again.

Charlotte Gertrude Walker (
A look at her stone indicates she is the wife of Walker Burnett. His stone is in the plot next to hers. I think her entry should read: Charlotte Gertrude Burnett....,,

What do you think? Thanks for the correction, I'm working on the 10 years of newspapers from 1889 thru 1899, and happened to run onto the above.

Stone shows: "age 4 years".

Thanks for adding this, Rita.

Thank YOU
Rita, I can't tell you how much I appreciated your assistance in helping find the young Josie Scott and finding her beautiful obituary that linked her to her parents. I will speak for all of Josie's ancestors and tell you how much we appreciate your work. Also, thank you for the transfer.
Blessings,

Need your help
Hi Rita, I read in your bio that you have access to old newspapers, etc for genealogy research. I'm searching for the daughter of Rev. James Harvey Scott who I believe could be your Josie Scott #79556133. I'm going to copy information that I have on her father where it notes when and where his daughter died. Can you check to see if this is his daughter buried in Gunnison?
Thanks
Janice Dyer Doran

Rev. AMES HARVEY SCOTT pastored in Gunnison, 1880. Here he secured and moved into a tent on Saturday night, and preached the next day in the unfinished land-office building. During the evening services the people had to raise their umbrellas and put on their hats to shield them from the falling rain. When Presiding Elder Cranston came to hold his first quarterly-meeting, they used an unfinished store building without windows. A heavy snow fell the night before. The people sat in the windows to get the sun and keep warm, changing off occasionally with one another. He built a house here to shelter his family, and also a church to provide for his congregation. Had a good revival. Here the greatest sorrow of his life came to him, in the death of his only daughter, Jessie. She was a devout Christian, an accomplished organist, and a great help to her father in his work, though less than fourteen year of age.

RE: Hazel Wright
As to the date. When I find that for a memorial I care for. I put the date of the stone on the memorial, and then add notes to the bio. As to Cass County, Missouri. That one I am not sure as to what you are referring to. As per there is a cass county, Missouri

Louise Whinnery
I will keep her since you don't mind. My husband's grandmother was a Whinnery and compiled The Whinnery Family Record in 1910. Louise is related by marriage as she married Webster Whinnery's son (can't remember his name). If I can locate obituaries for the rest of the family buried in "your" cemetery, I will ask for their memorials to be transferred.
Thanks so much!

RE: David Wolfe-Gunnison Cemetery
Are there two David Wolfe's? It was just a little marker next to or close to the Wolfe/Sanford stone. I'm confused. The dates are the same as your memorial? Please advise. Thanks Rita!

John Pennington
An obit for John Pennington (1901)is something I never expected!!! Thank you so much. I was not able to access anything other than the public message site so hope you get this.

I have been using Interlibrary Loan from the PA State Library and found a message in the Lancaster (PA) paper where Delilah's sister-in-law gave notice of Delilah's death and made mention of family relationship.

Thank you so very much, Rita....I'll look forward to receiving John's 1901 obit.

Webster Whinery
Just had another thought. Are you familiar with the Whinnery Farms outside of Gunnison. I think Webster or his father probably started it and it is still in the family. I am thinking of contacting the family but didn't know if you know them and if they are approachable.

Webster Whinnery
Thanks for looking, Rita! I contacted the library in Gunnison and they said they have the obit in the "Whinnery Family file". They are going to send it to me. I appreciate you looking.

Webster Whinnery
Thanks so much for the transfer. I have added the obit from his birth home paper. I do believe that the date of burial on his memorial has to be wrong. Would you be able to look for his obit from Gunnison and email it to me? The Salem, Ohio paper said he died 18 July 1967.

Thanks

Minnie E. Davis
Her obituary states that she was born 15 Feb 1866 in Caro, Iowa and died in Gunnison 22 Jan 1927. Her parents were John Smith Marshall and Ruth J. Marshall. Married Theodore Davis 19 Dec. 1889 here in Gunnison County. If you enlarge the picture of her stone, I think you will see 1866 rather than 1868. Thanks for adding this information. Loline Sammons
