|Nancy||Ouray's burial location|
What do you make of this article:
Ouray died in August 24, 1880 near Los Pinos Indian Agency in Colorado. His people secretly buried him near Ignacio, Colorado. Forty-five years later, in 1925, his bones were re-interred in a full ceremony led by Chief Buckskin Charley and Chief John McCook at the Ignacio cemetery.
A 1928 article in the Denver Post reads, "He saw the shadow of doom on his people" and a 2012 article writes, " He sought peace among tribes and whites, and a fair shake for his people, though Ouray was dealt a sad task of liquidating a once-mighty force that ruled nearly 23 million acres of the Rocky Mountains."

Didn't mean to be impatient! I just learned about this myself. :-)
Thanks for all your work!
Hi , I wasn't sure if you knew you had pending edits on FindAGrave. Someone had to let me know - they don't notify you, you just have to check once in awhile on your 'Contributor' page.
Over to the right there should be a tab called 'edits' and then you just approve them. I have been adding information to a bunch of my relatives and many contributors are not aware yet that they have to approve them.
Thanks for all your time!

Hi Eric -
I sent you some edits for Anna Pietenpool (11111485). There is a duplicate memorial for her as Anna Pientenpol (93603474). The birth month on that one is different from the burial index, but it has the last name spelled the same as the headstone and index. I added my new photos to both and will let you and the other contributor sort it out. -Amy

Hi Eric -
You have Mary Jane Gain (11104484) and Miles Javis (11107495). In the burial index, they are Mary Jane and Miles Jain. There are now "duplicates" for these 2, Mary Jane Case Jain (72949260) and Jules Francois Emil "Miles" Jain (87063750). I went ahead and added my new photos to those ones. I assume they were completely innocent duplicates. (-: Let me know if you have questions, Amy

You transferred this memorial to me but I do not remember requesting it. Perhaps you meant to put in a different member number? I will transfer her back to you. Thank you! Karen

Oh, I know, the old burial ledger books can be hard to read/transcribe. The burial index has a number of errors, too, no doubt for the same reasons. We just don't know for sure if it's "Berger" or "Bergen", for example, until we've laid eyes on the actual headstone. (-: Slowly but surely, it gets sorted out. All the work you did to create the memorials for GM is much appreciate by many people, I'm sure. Thanks, Amy

Thank you for the transfer. Your kindness is greatly appreciated!

It must be Cora May Clayton Harter buried next to Rose Coleman, her daughter. That family did have a habit of switching names around. She died of the flu. Quite a news article was posted on Find A Grave about her death.

Thank you, I looked at the Western States marriages and Laramie Co. nothing jumped right out. Do they have an office at Lakeview Cemetery, where Rose is buried. Those news articles can be so wrong, they also said her mother was living in Cheyenne. She had died 10 yrs before. Said Rose buried next to her daughter. Will have to do more research.
