Bio and Links
Retired in Durango, Colorado. On a volunteer basis, helping folks research La Plata County pioneers .Since I did not know any of these people, I rely on secondary sources. If I have made any mistakes, please let me know and I will correct them. If I cannot confirm who the person is, but I believe I have enough evidence to hazard a guesss, I will begin with "My guess is that..." in the hopes this may help someone someday. Happy to transfer memorial ownership to family members.

RE: Ben Byrd
Sorry It's been one of those days. The Ben I'm interested in is 6051144. My computer is old and I can't see your picture very well What I'm asking is, if his middle initial is a W and it appears there is someone with him, a wife? Can you tell me her name.
Family history said he died in Durango but he might not have been and this might be the Ben I'm looking for.

Ben Byrd
My computer is horrid, and I can't see the picture you posted to well. Could you tell me if it says Ben W ? I am looking for a Benjamin W. Byrd who was born in 1897 and died in 1973.
Thanks so much

Thank you very much for the transfer, of Martha Brown.

But instead of John M. Brown #27837068, you transfer #27837057, J. W. Brown, which he is the son of John M. Brown and Martha Brown.
But I went ahead and but the information there I hope that is ok.
