Lorie I am not related to Mary. I just took a random picture and created her memorial from it

Would you like me to transfer the memorial to you?

RE: Russell Johnson's gravestone
So glad you contacted Mike. (He is a dear1)

Can you scan in the draft cards and anything else would be appreciated...Wow! Having that bible is something.

Can you contact me via email?, please?

When you access that Greeley paper, double click and then use the icon to zoom in. You can not copy but I got it good enough to see. Maybe we can get a copy the Greeley library.

I have a DAR friend in the genealogy section that might help. Her name is Donna Hoffman.

RE: Russell Johnson's gravestone
Here is a message I received from the museum...

Hi Kathy,

I am the Collections Curator at FCMoD, and Lesley Drayton forwarded your message about a collection donated by T.R. Johnson to me. I found several artifacts in our archaeology collection which were collected by T.R. Johnson; it appears from the record that they were first given to Roy Coffin, of CSU and then transferred to the Fort Collins Museum along with his extensive collections in 1976.

One of the artifacts, a bone awl, happens to be on exhibit in our First Peoples area. The rest still in the process of moving from our former building. I would be happy to arrange an appointment to show these artifacts to anyone interested in them.

Thank you for getting in touch, and please let me know if you have any further questions.

Linda Moore

Curator of Collections

Fort Collins Museum of Discovery

See if you can open this. It was a photo in the Greeley paper of T. Russell Johnson in July 25 1936 (?) at a site where "Campsite of ancient Americans found in Colorado..."

Amazing that you are in that field. Do you teach, too?

RE: Russell Johnson's gravestone
Vera and Bob talked about his (Maybe hobby) in archaeology. He (and my dad) scoured the foothills and prairie finding native American tp rings and artifacts (that would be illegal to even search for now.)

Vera said they took most of his collection (?) to the Fort Collins museum. That facility recently re-opened in a new location just off of Mason and Vine. It is a bigger facility and they have some of their material listed online.

I have taken some of my family things there recently, too.

It might be worth a call to see what was donated. Russell's death was when I was in Jr. Hi. I do not remember much besides what Vera has told me. I heard of Bill's having a girl friend elsewhere long ago, but that source is now gone so I can not find out anything. Mother said he may have just had a crush on someone, but I remember hearing he was heartbroken about her.

Mike is younger than I. He may remember or have heard more than I did. Mike was born in 1955.

Have you contacted him yet?

RE: Connection
I loved visiting at the houses on Taft Hill. The last time we were there was about the time Vera and Bob's daughter, Diana Lee was married there in the yard. It was so beautiful.

Vera and Bob had 4 kids; Diana, Mike, Jim and Gail. Diana had 2; Emily (in Loveland and 2 sons) and Albert Lee. Mike had son, Jamie (in Windsor and has 2 sons) with his first wife and the two girls Kim and Kelley and son, Mike Jr (2 children)

Jim died a couple of years ago but had 2 sons, now in the FC area with a child each.

Gail lives near Vera and had 4 children (all in the Loveland area) with a grandchild on the way.

We are almost all on facebook if you are on that site.

Wonderful wood work! Mother has a lamp and I think a few other things. Carl got my dad to working with wood but dad could not do anything like Carl.

I was wrong...Carl was at the cement plant with my grandfather Tuttle and dad worked there with Carl for a time.

My cousin is Vera. She stayed with my mother and dad when her mom and dad moved to California (high school years). Vera married Bob Sharp just before she graduated. We share a grandmother and our mothers were sisters.

Bob was an only child so was close to Uncle Bill (house next door and same age). Bob and Vera's kids were just a bit younger than me. Since I was an 'only', we did a lot of family things together.

Vera is more like my aunt than cousin. She lives in Loveland with her second husband, Terry Selland. Her son, Mike is in Fort Collins and is taking care of the details of Bill's affairs.

White pages have Mikes number wrong but the second number I gave should work this pm. If not, let me know
