Bio and Links
Bio Photo A 'family historian' for 30+ years I only recently began taking cemetery photographs as time became available...I'm more than happy to fill requests, including those for 2 areas we visit several times each year: Clarksville, TN and Decatur, Illinois. My deepest thanks to all of the incredible volunteers at Find-A-Grave who have advanced my genealogy research tremendously, but even more important, have touched my heart with their many kindnesses and personal letters. You make this site a great one, and I salute you all!

Forsyth children.
I see that Willie E. & Robert M. Forsyth are already linked to their parents John T. and Mary (Crisman) Forsyth. That only leaves Edmond Quincy & William J. Forsyth that have not been linked at this time. I will let you know when they have been linked as well.

RE: Please remove list of children from bio. area.
I am sure they will get linked since Find A Grave will do them if the creators/managers of the children's memorials are not able to do the links. It may take a few weeks but all the edits I have sent are always done in 21 days or less. It is up to you so I'll understand if you would prefer to wait. Have a nice day,

After the 3 georges, it goes down to Judith Hand, to Margarette Cresse down to the Stuarts. What's yours?

RE: Means'
Wow! I'm sorry we missed Dave also. We did take pictures and will have to send you some. The old houses are gone, but the ranch buildings remain. The new owner has a spread near the beginning of the ranch. Entrance sign at highway 50 says cross bar ranch since 1892.

RE: George & Ida Solwig Means
I haven't heard about the Indian connection. Social Security says they died in Sargents, but they must have been in a hospital in Gunnison?

We did visit George and Ida today and my Uncle Dave Oberwager at Blue Mesa Lake (ashes again). The ranch looks great. Did they sell out to the Cross Bar Ranch?
The weather is perfect! 34/79 all week. We drove to Saguache, St Elmo by Mt Princeton and Blue Mesa Lake. On the way home we will see the Great Sand Dunes and go down to Taos and Santa Fe.

RE: Checking In
Hi, Karen!

Are you still around? I am in Salida right now checking out the Means connections. Met my 3rd cousin, Bill Hazard in Saguache. I am wondering if you know where George E Sr and Ida are buried. There isn't much on them on Ancestry besides the census and SS death records. Gunnison?

Thank you very much for the beautiful photos of the Doctor's grave and that of his infant daughter. Fall is a great time of year for visiting cemeteries I have found. The colors are great.
