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.

Henry Yost grave site photo
Thank you for taking the time to search out the grave site of this little one. Along the way, I hope to find his parents to link him with and his 'story.'

Your help is very much appreciated.

RE: Doris Leinwebber
There is a spot of George Leinweber's headstone that looks like it is made to add the information for his wife when she passes away. Did you notice if they added Doris's birth and death information to that headstone? The plot that you took a picture of looks like you have the edge of George's headstone in the picture. I am just wondering if they did that. If not that is ok and I will add that she does not have a headstone. But I just want to make sure that she is not on her husband's headstone first.
Thanks for all that you do in researching this for me. I really appreciate it.
