|Bio and Links|
I love looking for family, no matter how far removed. It's just flat fun! My main interest, however, are Geer's, Hodge's, Hampton's, Cargo's, Walker's, Simmons', Sala's, Snyder's, and any attachments of said families.|
I've recently become a little hooked on taking pictures out in Union Highland Cemetery in Florence, Colorado. I do so love UHC. One day I'll have photos of every Headstone out there up on Findagrave, and will have connected my peeps buried out there to each other. It was the Little Ones who got me hooked. "Where's your Momma, Baby? Where's your Papa?" Drove me nuts, so I started trying to find Momma's and Daddy's. I'm now a lost cause.
You have my permission to use my photos of Headstones in your own genealogy. It would be nice if you'd give me a little credit, but, let's get real, how am I to know? Oh, yes, I have kept the original photos, so if you want a larger picture, just e-mail me and I'll get it to you. I went and bought an external hard drive just to save them all, and am currently in the process of organizing everything. (7/11/2012)
How on Earth other contributors input 100,000+ Memorials into Findagrave's data base is beyond me. I'm not a big fan of data input; however, Courtney B. (Contributor # 47335873) and I created Memorials for the approximately 15,000 Folks buried out in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. It took from October 2012 'til the end of July 2013. This is no piece of cake.
All of this with a full-time job that I'm on-call for 24/7, bowling on Thursdays (which I really suck at, but somebody's got to be the Team Handicap), gardening (both flowers & veggies), and riding bikes with my husband, John, in the mountains on my beloved Harley, Pookah.
Enjoy! And I hope I've helped you in your own searching.
So, this is how I get started on tracking and linking the Folks in Union Highland Cemetery.
1. I notice the Vahldick's and Cowperthwaite's are buried in the same Lot. Gee, why is that?
2. There's only one other Vahldick in the Cemetery, Miss Sadie, and, why lookie there!, her grave is right next to Edward & Mary Ann Cowperthwaite. Two separate Vahldick's by two separate Cowperthwaite's. Bet that means something.
3. Harold's father was born in Illinois; his mother was born in England. Sadie Vahldick was born in England IF she is a Cowperthwaite.
3. In the 1910, 1920 & 1930 census', Mr. Harold Vahldick is living with Mr. David R. Davis. Harold is David's nephew. Oh, gee! Mr. David R. Davis's Lot is right behind Mr. Harold R. Vahldick's plot. Nephew, huh? That means Mr. David R. Davis is married to Harold's mother's sister.
4. Mr. David R. Davis is married to Miss Joan. I'll bet Miss Joan is a Cowperthwaite.

Thank you so much, Beth!!
I transferred Francis and Elizabeth to Carol Williams-Frager. I see they have already added the info you just provided and I know they will greatly appreciate it. Carol shared that one of Francis and Elizabeth's daughters, Mayme, married a Frager and that she had married into the Frager's and that they did not know where they were buried. With the obit you provided on Francis, I was able to locate most of their children and contacted Carol.
You have the best Bio on Find A Grave
Keep up the wonderful attitude and work, you are appreciated.

God Bless, Carol
