RE: Photo - Headstone of Elizabeth Alkire
Absolutely, yes! Your ancestor made contributions that helped build the wonderful community I call home. Feel free to use any image.

RE: Elwin Slater headstone
Linda, I'm glad you did that because after I read about him I thought some information ought to be added. I also wondered if there isn't an organization that might put a marker on his grave site. Kay

RE: Elwin Slater headstone
Yes, I am surprised that there was no head stone either. When I got the plot card from the office it said that he was a policeman and he was shot, in very small writing. And Silas Marts was on the plot card also and said he was shot by Dr. Rice. So I did some checking and found more information about the incident. Sorry that I didn't find a head stone. Kay

RE: Thank you!
Alkire-Dudgeon Cemetery
Latitude: 38.677
Longitude: -91.7514999

Cemetery is on the edge of a bluff on the old Stonner farm and accessed by permission. Hidden in a grove of trees, the burial ground overlooks the quarry to the west, the old coal-fired power plant to the north and it is accessed by private drive at the end of First Street in Chamois. If you find Chamois in Google Maps, you will see it is divided by railroad tracks east-west. Just south of the tracks is First Street. Follow it east to the end and see the road curve around the bluff covered by trees. It's among the trees atop the bluff. NOTE: GPS measurements recorded with pictures by iPhone 4.

RE: Thank you!
You're very welcome. My apologies for taking so long to provide the images ...there were no records of the cemetery's exact location. As it turned out, it's on the old Stonner farm, private property at the point of a bluff behind my house! No one has been up there for decades. It is very overgrown with irises and jonquils, yet peaceful and lovely. The view is breathtaking.

I fixed the Date of birth. I was clicking on accept and hit the decline before I realized it. Sorry about that.

RE: Hi Cousin
Thanks for the info cousin. I have a few questions for you....
Did James A. Trotter die at an early age so that his son had to be raised by a step-parent?
Did you know your grand-parents or your great grand parents?
Did the Trotter families continue to live in Colorado?
