Fred Compton
Fred Compton's memorial # is 96148803

Its hard to make out day of month of his death. The Grass Valley Daily Union of June 26th, 1877 shows DIED At Denver, Colorado, June 24, 1877.
It looks like it could even be the 21st. The upper portion of the 4 is pretty worn if that's what it is.

I would also like to find out what he died of.
Fred was my cousin 5x removed.

I would also like to know if Clara C. Wilson
was buried at the Riverside Cemetery in Denver.

Her maiden name was Coryell. Clara was Fred's mother Elvira's sister.

Clara made out a legal document in 1894, showing 1347 Court Place Denver, Colorado as her place of residence.

FYI I was stationed at Lowry AFB from July of 1954 to August of 1955.

Surname Stevens
Hello I was wondering if you are related to William and Ann (White) Stevens? They are my 3 times Great Grandparents. If you are I would like to maybe speak to you about family history.

Thank you,

WOW, Thank you so much for this information. I have looked off and on for information on him but quite evidently in all the wrong places. May I please add your data to mine? I have written the Gentleman as asked for his transfer to me. I will also request a photo.

the Polkinghorns
Thanks for the e-mail regarding the Polkinghorns. I am not related but photographed the tombstone because it was a unique name. I originally used others' trees to come up with Eliza Polkinghorn's maiden name as Bands. I did a little more digging today and found her Illinois death certificate on and it says her father's name was Bands. I also found her son Edward's death certificate on and it says his mother's name was Eliza Banks. So, there are now three names in the running--Bands, Banks, and Bond. It's going to take someone from the family with direct knowledge to straighten this one out. Thanks for the interesting input, though.

P.S. My Civil War veteran virtual cemeteries are pretty much set up for my contributions to creating or maintaining GAR or CSA memorials. So, while I'd like to add your guy, I've had nothing to do with him. If I can add something down the road, then I'll add him to my virtual cemeteries. It is a shame, though, that his name is wrong on his marker. I'm going to file his name away until I can meet up with a guy who specializes in ordering new GAR replacement markers and I'll see what he has to say on this issue. Continued success with your tree and keep up the good work on
