I live in Colorado and love to travel in the east, MA, CT and NY as many of my ancestors lived there. I have a habit of taking cemetery pictures where ever I travel just for fun. Maybe some day I'll get a few more pictures added to this fine site. Our genealogical society, Foothills Genealogical Society of Colorado, has done many cemeteries in our 4 county area of interest and put many of them on our web page.
RE: Rod Tillman I have access to the new burial locations for person's at Memorial Park and enter them when available in hopes that family will find them. When I read your brother's obit, I found the family links and made them. Seeing the flower you had left on your parent's pages, I knew you were related and transferred your brother's page to you. Red
RE: JB Whitbeck You're very welcome. I also tried to add pictures and add captions to previous photos I had taken at that lot...and added photos to a few other memorials there.
There is a memorial that was created by Butterfly~Kisses for a supposed son of JB Whitbeck, having the same name (Memorial #76730242) which I think is likely from an entry in the Mt Hope Interment Records for "Jeremiah B Whitbecks Inft" and is probably really for their daughter Mary Alida, as the details seem to correspond. I wrote an edit to Butterfly~Kisses suggesting this.
Given you have been researching the family, what do you think?
RE: Your interesting Ault Cem, material Hi, It is fine to quote me, giving credit where possible. We also have a copy of my wife's great uncle's book "From Ox-Carts to Jet Planes" by Perry Ault. Perry lived to 102, and though he moved to the area near Eagle around 1900, he describes many of the people who lived near Turkey Creek from 1872 to ~1900 and later. I also found a number of items in a Golden, CO, newspaper which had historical editions available through Genealogy Bank (an inexpensive online resource).

RE: Ault Cemetery - Jeff Co CO Hi, My wife is an Ault. She is great-granddaughter of Frank Ault, who is in the Ault Cemetery. Her parents (Ralph & Mildred Ault) are memorialized at the cemetery. (Her grandparents are at the big cemetery in Littleton). Liz is related in some way or another to about half of the people in the cemetery. Aults married into the Biggars, Freemans, Maples, Crows, Wilsons and more. Andrew Ault came from Ohio and lived in Wisconsin and Nebraska before moving to the Turkey Creek area in 1882. (Tressa Ault had moved there one or two years earlier with her husband, Jacob Freeman). Several years later they invited Andrew's brother, Frank, and his 10 surviving children to join them. In the winter before Frank built his own cabin and before some of the older ones married, they all lived in Andy's cabin, about 20 Aults under one roof. Two even had the exact same name (Cora Edna Ault)! At one point the old Medlen school (which still stands) had 12 students, 10 of whom were related to the Aults. It was a longstanding tradition to spend memorial day having a big group for cleanup and picnic at the cemetery and we have a few of the very old pictures. My wife did this the years that she lived in Colorado. My wife and I will be visiting the cemetery next week to see our son, Scott, who is buried there.
RE: Ault Cemetery - Jeff Co CO Hi, Mary F. Ault was the daughter of Andrew and Elizabeth Ault, born July 21, 1872. I think she was born when Andrew & family lived in Nebraska but it may have been Wisconsin. She was one of the sisters of Frederick Ault, who donated the land for the cemetery from his land claim. She married a Mr. Hennessey - I don't have his Christian name at hand - and is buried as Mary F. Hennessey, 1872 - 1942. I have a copy of her burial permit but not her death certificate. She died March 11, 1942 of cerebral hemorrhage, in Denver. Gerald Hawkins, Santa Clara, CA
RE: Laura Pauline (Tillman) Rowland Hello Liz: I figured you might want your Aunt and Uncle so I updated their memorial and linked them to their parents based on the names that you gave me. AND ... transferred them to you.
It is always good to see family go home with family.
