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."

Ella Dedman
Thanks you so very much for the photo of this old headstone for Ella. I am working on getting all her family attached to her memorial. I just found where her husband is buried & I will get a photo of his small marker.
I am doing this for a friend & she will be thrilled to see the photo of her husband's grandmother's headstone.

RE: Benjamin Gott
the daughter in law said that several years ago the parents of Benjamin made a special trip to Colo. to buy a stone for Benjamin. So there must have been a stone at one time. Hope you can find it. Thank you for the work you do.

RE: Del Franz
I guess Del is alive and living in Loveland, CO. Sorry for the inconvenience.

He had a major heart attack 5 years ago and I "assumed" he had passed. He was the husband of an ex-sister-in-law.

Thanks for all your help!! It is really appreciated!

Wm Baker
Thanks for the photo for William. I have requested one for Pamelia Baker as well. Is she on the back side of William's stone or on a separate stone? Thanks again.

Slay stones - Mountain View Cemetery
I'd also like to thank you for the photo of Washington & Emma Slay's gravestone. I'm more than grateful for all of your extra efforts. They do not go un-noticed or un-noted. Thank you for being a wonderfully generous person.

Schoolcraft & Eggleston gravestones - Mountain View Cemetery
I wish to say "Thank You" for taking the time & effort to search for and photograph the gravestones of LaVerne & Mary Schoolcraft and also William & Florence Eggleston. I sincerely appreciate your help in documenting them for historical & genealogical preservation and not only locating their final resting places, but photographing despite there being no headstone in some cases. I really appreciate the overview shot so I can determine visually the overall placement of his burial. Thank You.
