Born on 15 Iyar 5745, Denver native and lifelong resident, my body headed to Commerce City at the end of my days, אי״ה. I am grateful for Find A Grave facilitating acts of kindness in unique ways, including its photo volunteer program thanks to which I've seen the graves of several distant relatives for the first time. I've also experienced here a real spirit of goodwill, friendship, and collaboration among members. On a site dedicated to the dead, the living help out the living... the unifying power of the internet!

Thank you Thanks for the suggestion for the obscured father's name on Isaac Miller's (109807895) stone. I really appreciate it. I may have to take a trip out there again if I'm over in B'nai Israel cemetery to see if I can get a non-obscured photo.
Louis' older brother Abba Ze'ev brought his large family from NYC to Pueblo as part of the Industrial Removal Office's mission to take Jews out of the NY ghetto and resettle them in small towns across America.
Unfortunately Abba Ze'ev died a few months after arriving in Pueblo. Shortly after, his wife took their eight children back to NYC. Abba Ze'ev is buried in Pueblo.
The importance of the photo that you took lies in Oulis and Alta's son William. We now know that William's Hebrew name was Abba Ze'ev and that he was named for his uncle. William was a 2ns Lt in the 16th Infantry, First Division of the first Army and fought through the campaigns in North Africa, Italy, and the Normandy invasion of DDay. I believe that he died in combat in the Hurtgen Forest near Hamich, Germany.
I've shared this information with an elderly family member of William's and it warmed her heart.
Kyrias Pupa cemetery Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunatly my friend in France who has translated names and dtes for me has not gone further..I would dearly love to know what some of the inscriptions say... If you have time, please translate some for me? email@example.com It has been a labor of love for me.
RE: R' Rosencrantz I am happy I could do this for you. It took 2 visits for me to figure out the reflection and sun position challenges, I am not an expert photographer. (-: Going back right after the sun went behind the Flatirons (mountains in the background) helped a lot. Peter Israel Rosencrantz's polished black granite headstone is so beautiful, it was my pleasure. Take care, Amy
RE: Many thanks you are very welcome! It's good to know that there are people who care about these graves. I wish Mikveh Israel #3 was more accessible, but at least it's not trashed or overgrown like many old cemeteries.
Morrow family F.Y. Thanks so much for taking the photos of Jennie Morrow and her son Harry at Fairmount Cemetery in Denver, Find A Grave Memorial# 31798996. I really appreciate it. Jennie's husband was Matthew. He is buried in Ohio. He was in Co I, 120th OVI in the Civil War. I have been researching the 120th Ohio Volunteer Infantry for the last 11 yrs in order to identify the men. I would like permission to use your photos on my site and on any CD or print copy of my research that I will give to the Wayne County library in Wooster OH. I always give credit for the photos. Thanks for any help. Susie Holderfield
RE: Twerskis Thank you so much for thinking of me. The photos are wonderful and I enjoyed looking at them. I love the black and white images. I shared the link with my friend who helped me with the translations.
