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."

You have my permission to use headstone photos that I have posted for your genealogy record.

RE: Julia Chacon
Thank you!! I did the search on Find a Grave and found the one other person with the middle name of Chacon, but I didn't know if all of the names in the cemetery had been indexed or not or if there were any other clues around her grave site. I would appreciate anything you can help with! Thanks so much!

Twin Baby Girls Shacklett
Thank you so much for the gravestone photo. Was there a headstone for the baby girls or just the large family name gravestone?
