Thank you for the follow-up on Daniel O' Neal Hammonds wife, Margaret Ripple Murray. I am glad her linage has been established.

Thank you for all of your contributions to Find A Grave.

Mary Papini
Hi! Mick, thanks for contacting me about my listing for Mary Papini. You are correct! She isn't buried in Longmont, but in Boulder and someone else has already made a listing for her so I've deleted mine. I think I probably assumed that she would have been buried in Longmont since the obituary was in the Longmont paper . . . I'm glad you caught the error so I could correct it! Ann Koch.

By the way, some of my ancestors are buried at Longmont . . . does the surname Cantonwine ring a bell for you? My two sisters and I visited your cemetery some years ago and chatted with several staff members there. At the time, all of the cemetery records were kept on 3x5 (for maybe larger) cards (does that tell you how LONG AGO that was???. The office person was very helpful, letting us look at all the information that was on those cards for Cantonwines interred there. We took photos of all the headstones connected to our family. I still have a few questions but don't have time right now to go look up what those questions were. If I remember I'll get back to you in that regard. Ann Koch

Genealogy of the family DE VISSCHER

I am living in Belgium.
I am building since a few years the family tree for the family DE VISSCHER.

The family is mainly centralized in Flanders, Belgium.
But some members did immigrate to the USA between 1910 and 1920.
I found some informations on those who leaved Belgium in 1912 on the boot LUSITANIA. It seems those persons are established in Longmont and I found some photos of their grave on your site (Lucille, Andrew,...).

Could you confirm if more informations are available (detailled family tree, addresses, ...) ?
My grand-parents said that more members of our family also immigrated.
Could you give me some indication on where I could find those information ?
- list of passengers who immigrated from Belgium (place, date, boot name,...)
- detailled lists of immigration from Belgium

Thanks a lot,

It seems that you have decided not to correct your entry. I will contact Find a Grave and have them delete your erroneous listing.

RE: Tim Hess
I got the drift when he refused to make changes to my wife's ancestors without proof. I sent him the published obituary for William Franklin Noftsger but have not seen any changes movement so far. I had anticipated he would delete his entry when I noted that it duplicated yours. He emphatically informed me that YOUR entry was the duplicate. I noted that he had the middle initial wrong and simply assumed it would be easiest for all if he would delete his entry with the erroneous information.

This is not the uncooperative attitude we contributors need or expect.

BTW, I have been most impressed by your rapid response even on weekend evenings. Your entries have encouraged me to contribute suggested changes to records you have added. I took pictures of my wife's ancestors memorials some time ago but had not, as yet, gotten around to putting entries for them on Find A Grave. It has not been very long ago that I found out about Find A Grave and started making contributions and responding to photo requests in our local area.

Many of my wife's (CYNTHIA (FRANTZ) MITCHELL) relatives (parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) are from Longmont and are buried at Mountain View so I have quite an interest in interments there. Cindy's father (CARROLL LENFORD FRANTZ) and grandfather (ROY WYMAN FRANTZ) were athletic stars at Longmont High. Surnames of my wife's ancestors include FRANTZ, NOFTSGER, MCKNIGHT, GOLDEN, LEGGE, & BECK. We have the family Bible that ELIZABETH (FRONK) NOFTSGER gave to her son, WILLIAM FRANKLIN NOFTSGER, when he married. I have traced the family migration from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Iowa to Colorado.
