Bio and Links
I've always been fascinated with history and with genealogy. I'm currently trying to update the records of graves in Hillside Cemetery near my home in Saguache, Colorado. This includes adding historical and biographical information that I may locate. The town is one of many small, dying towns in the country, but it has a fascinating early history.

I will gladly transfer memorials to immediate family members, following the guidelines of Find-a-Grave.com. Just click on "Edit" on the memorial page, then click where it says to suggest a correction to the memorial.

RE: Middle and maiden names for Sarah Cornish
Bill,

First I should make a correction to the info I gave ... Abraham Loami Cornish was John Jay's brother ... not Jacob's brother. I got carried away with all those "J's".
As for the Hazard's in my tree ... I have John Hazard married to Lydia Blackwell, daughter of Col Jacob Blackwell (1717-1780) and Lydia Hallett (1731-1812). I am trying to find John's parents.
Next is Nathaniel Hazard born 1765, married Elizabeth Drummond. Their daughter Elizabeth (1743-1814) married Joseph Hallett III (1731-1799).
Then there is William Hazard who married Lucretia Holmes.
I am definitely curious of the Hazard Clan as they seem to have married into (or their descendants married into) the Hallett family. WIlliam Hallett and Elizabeth Fones Winthrop Feake Hallett were my 8x great grandparents.

Cheers!

RE: Middle and maiden names for Sarah Cornish
Hi Bill,

Thank you for your reply. All I can cite is our Cornish family history which cites the following:

Sarah Jane Bowne (1824-1899) was the daughter of William F Bowne (1798-?) and Martia (mnu) (1796-1871).

Sarah's brother was Walter S Bowne (1821-1900) married to Phebe Avery.

Sarah married John Jay Cornish Jun 13 1827.

John Jay was the son of Jacob Miller Cornish (1791-1852) and Susan Williams Patrick (1796-1862).

Jacob and Susan were my paternal great, great, great grandparents.

Jacob's brother, Abraham Loami Cornish (1835-1904)married Ellen Sophia Bailey (1839-1899) ... and they were my great great grandparents.

I have Jay's brothers' and sisters' information as well, if you would be interested.

P.S. I have a couple 'Hazard folks' in my tree as well.

Kind Regards,

Trish

I just deleted my memorial for Nick. Sorry for the duplicate, and then asking for a transfer. God bless you.

RE: Collins
He was such a neat youngster when I knew him around 10 or 11 years old. You were very lucky to have known him as a young man. Thank you, and I will see if I can figure a way to transfer the memorial to you.

Bill,I just now saw that Nick had passed away, and without looking I entered his obituary on Find A Grave. I knew his mom and his grandparents were my neighbors in Salida. Nick was just a youngster then. I am sorry that I entered a memorial for him. My question is would you please transfer his memorial to me. Thank you.

Thanks for the info. My family has a ranch on the Cochetopa, Harold Kreuger was my dad. I remember him talking about the Hazard family just wondered it you are from the same family?

RE: Photo request for James Curtis
Did you not have luck getting the memorial holder to change the location? I see it is still the same... If I can help, let me know. Thanks for all your help! Vonna

Thank you very much, Bill. I appreciate your efforts.
I added information and photos of the family plot in Creede as well, and mentioned the connection with those relatives in Saguache.
Thank you again.
