|Bio and Links|
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 25 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 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."

|Sharon Welch||RE: Thomas Gardner|
Thanks so very much for all you are doing. We don't know much about Thomas. He was the brother to Alfred Gardner. Don't worry about spending too much time on finding info on him if you are busy. He was a brother in law to my distant 1st cousin, Liberty Belle Rains. I would love to know more about him for our family records so if you are still inclinded to find more information about him it will be greatly appreciated.
I am so surprised Thomas does not have a stone. So Sad!

|Janice Peay||RE: Baby Thieman and Albert Thiejman|
Yep, I'm related to the Thieman family, and I am positive Baby Thieman and Albert Thieman are the same child. The headstone was done within the last ten or so years by another cousin. She didn't have dates, just approximated the year, and knew that Albert died at six months of age. The Hygiene Cemetery records are quite a mess :-)
Information from Funeral Home Records; Howe Mortuary, Boulder, Colorado. Burial date 26 Sep 1893. I viewed the records personally.
Longmont Ledger, Boulder Co., Colorado, http://www.rootsweb.com/~colgs/ledgerindex.htm, Hygiene column, dated 29 Sep 1893.
Albert was six months old, so I think you can safely say he was born in February 1893.

I'm having problems with my computer - sorry!
Thank you so much for the photo. I am an Adler by birth in Washington, and I have been rounding up relatives and ancestors for a long time. I really appreciate the time it takes for trips to a cemetery, but Colorado isn't exactly in my backyard. Thank you again...Judi

|Sally Darby Sauer||Benta & Nelse Olsen|
I was wondering if either you or your husband are related to Benta and/or Nelse Olsen who are interred at Mountain View Cemetery, Longmont, Colorado? I noticed they're not on your list of ancesters. Their names are similar to the names of my great, great grandparents. I have been unable to find any information on them since they came to the U.S. from Denmark in 1873.
|Eva Pippin Flowers||George Ruggles|
Thanks so much for all the work you are putting into finding the rest of the story for George. Hope you are feeling better!
|Eva Pippin Flowers||Ruggles and Jordan site photos|
So sorry that you aren't feeling well. Hope you are able to get over that quickly!
Thanks for the pictures of George Ruggles, Phoebe Ruggles, Emma Jordan's tombstones! Does make one wonder the rest of the story!
So appreciate all you do! Hope you have a great day!
|Tracy Howard||Frank George Ballinger|
Thank you again, B.J., for the work you do in Longmont. I keep meaning to get up there, but always something keeps me from going -- weather, other commitments, etc. I appreciate you adding the photo for Frank and Mary.
