RE: Mariner Cook & Esther # 106306981
Hello Cara, are living in Grand Junction, CO. I grew up there and return often. I spent 3 hours photographing markers with my sister last January. Thank you for the help.
E. E. Cook stands for Esther Elizabeth Cook. She was married to Mariner Cook -no middle name. It is his real name. Their youngest son, Harry, is buried beside his mother. I walked the plot and blocks a couple of years ago with 2 service workers , who found the graves..... at least 2 feet beneath the surface now. No markers that we know of. As for Mariner, there are several articles in the Grand Junction Daily News and The Daily Sentinel from 1901 when Mariner died. The Flume from Leadville, near Como in Park county carried an article about his death and 'presumed' burial plans, etc. etc. No one in any of the cemeteries in the Grand Valley have any records of his burial. There is a strange and poorly written entry in on of the cemeteries near Golden. They lived there and were active members of the community for several years. I hope this closes come loop holes for you. I appreciate all your time and effort. Please be in contact again if or when you have any other ideas. Thank you , Karen Terrill McGuirk.

Thank you so much for sending me her obituary to add to her grave entry on Find-A-Grave. One of her grandchildren is my niece. I've done extensive research on her family and her husband's family.

Would it be okay with you for me to add your photo of her headstone to our family tree on Thank you for adding it to her entry.

Thanks for writing! I'm glad this is useful. According to state records, he worked as a peddler and died at the Richmond City Jail of "Acute Alcoholism".

I called the Vets Memorial Cemetery for plot information.
I was told that she is in Sec 8 Row A Space 3 near her husband Charles Bradshaw. I should have done that before.
Thank you for your effort.

It says American Legion around the edge.
It would signify some sort of military service, however I am have no idea what his service dates might have been.

RE: RE:Stella Love
I am completely aware that there is already a photo. I requested an image since the one that was posted by the person who created the memorial is atrotious. I requested it a few months back and you took the pictures, yet it is now on Bert J Loves Memorial but not Stella Malia Loves. I would like the photo YOUR photo on hers as well please. I have no clue who Stella Loveland is.

Added by JGBC on Jan 20, 2016 6:12 PM

Virginia Ong Wallaceat the Orchard Mesa Cemetery in Grand Junction Colorado is my husband's grandmother and I am trying to find her husband William Wallace. He is in Grand Junction for a while and then I can find no further record of him.

John Neumeister
Received your notes. Thanks. I stayed up late last night going thru everything and found on the 1940 census that he was not living with his wife Goldie. It was just John sr. and John jr. Then on the next information I found him living with Minnie. Never found divorce or marriage records. I did know that him and Goldie divorced as it showed up on John jr Obit that I found in Pueblo, Colorado some months back, but found out about the many different types of jobs he worked. So now I filled in his bio. Next I'm going to try and tie his children in, that's going to be a large task. I've tried over a long period of time finding info on them.

I will call tomorrow the number you gave me. Thank you. If I can find out plot# site# and grave# I'll let you know. I had a guy do that for me on his mother and one brother that are in a unmarked grave at Riverside Cemetery in Denver.

Are you not going to post the obit as a picture on the Memorial?? Let me know.

I'll also email and thank the person that gave you the information. Its so nice when people can work together.

Thank you for your rapid response. I had already checked cemeteries where others are buried in Pueblo, and he wasn't their. And being he was advanced in age and was divorced, he had no one around. Sad that his son had no contact. He passed a few years ago. I contacted his grandson and he didn't know anything about where his grandfather was. I just read your second email. Thanks for ALL your effort. You can mail it to me at My computer doesn't do PDF's. Too old, wouldn't it be better to just post it on Find A Grave giving you the credit. You deserve something for your work. Because of people like you people are able to find their loved ones. Thanks again.

RE: John Neumeister
Thank you for your effort, it is much appreciated. My last record showed him in a nursing home in Mesa, Palasade at a very old age. I would appreciate any effort you continue to furnish should you find out any more information. Most of his relatives are buried in Pueblo Colorado. I suspect that he was cremated. I tried contacting other family members with out any knowledge either. Yes he is a relative of mine, I'll also call the number you gave me. Many thanks again.

Best Regards

Denis Sheils, P.S.
Cara, I think I got the answer. I magnified the second photo that shows the DURKIN's, black-granite headstone. In the lower left corner it says "65-30-7/8" which should be read as Section 65, Plot 30, Graves 7 & 8. So there are two graves side by side. This large, black-granite headstone is the "real" one, the one that indicates who are buried in those two graves, Denis Sheils being one of them. The white, small stone it's a stone tablet with Denis Sheils' WWII military credentials, rather than a regular headstone.

Added by Marcial on Dec 04, 2015 6:22 PM

Denis Sheils
Cara, thanks for your words. Looking at the second photo, probably the one you like best, I see that there are two headstones with the name "Denis Sheils" engraved on them, and both died on April 21, 1940, which means that it is the same person. Why two headstones?

Added by Marcial on Dec 04, 2015 5:22 PM

Thank you for adding the headstone photo to Orvilla Kelley Ward's memorial.
