Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native of Longmont, CO. I'm been interested in genealogy for almost 50 years but I did take time off to raise a family. Research is much easier now then it was 30 years ago. The Denver Library and Federal Archives are not far away and that has been a help.

When I started taking photos my husband didn't come but after a visit to a cemetery that was on a one lane road on the side of a mountain he was hooked. The markers were very old and very interesting, so now he willing walks around a cemetery with me as we locate the markers that were requested. He trims the grass and pulls the weeds around the markers to be sure I get a good photo. We also stop and visit relatives and friends and look at interesting markers. The two remarks on markers I have really liked are "This is the only stone she left unturned." and "I told you I was sick."

RE: Charles Jesse Rightsell Photo Request
I really do appreciate your help!! I believe his father was Robert H. Robert H is as far back in my family tree as I have been able to go. If this is the correct Charles J, one of his sons is Robert Ezra, and a grandson named Robert Dean "Bert". I really do appreciate you looking for me!
Thanks Again,
Julie

RE: Charles Jesse Rightsell Photo Request
Hi! Thanks so much for responding!! Please don't trouble yourself with taking a picture of the place where he is buried. Was really hoping for more family information. I've made it back to his father's name, Robert H, but cannot seem to go any further than that. I know Robert H was born around 1822 in Tennessee but that's about it. Thanks for the offer though!!

Thomas Gorsuch 116683161
Thomas Gorsuch #116683161 is a brother of my great great grandmother, Rebecca Gorsuch Clark #11223743, so that would make him a third great uncle of mine. I would be happy to transfer him over to you. I have put in a request for a picture of his memorial stone, but so far have not heard back. Happy hunting. Doris
