please add the following to Memorial# 9312544
section 26C site 360. He was a great man. thank you k
In my research of a Cheyenne WY Pioneer, I came across the 1866 History of Denver by Wharton. There-in lies an account of Larimer's construction of his home and his influence in naming Denver. I've appended the reference to the "flowers" section of the profile you have registered. Very good biography, Fred.
|David Wend||RE: Robert Merrill|
Thanks for your reply. I found it is difficult to make a memorial famous. I have two - Jean Francaix and Paul Paray that I keep changing to famous.
|David Wend||Robert Merrill|
I like your memorial for Robert Merrill but could you change the birthdate to June 4?
Thanks so much for the memorial for David Hackworth.
He will always be my hero and I was soo lucky to have been able to tell him so before he left us.

Hi I thought maybe you could help me with this, I figured since you did a great job on Dick Martin and he was married to her once, you would be the right person to help me on this..Thanks in Advance..
|Patricia||Gen. William Larimer|
Hi. There seems to be some confusion as to where General William Larimer, Jr. (1908-1875) is buried. You have him in the Leavenworth National Cemetery and someone else has him and his wife (Rachel) in a cemetery in Pennsylvania with a photo of the headstone. Any chance the two of you could figure out which is correct? Thank you. - Patricia
