|As the oldest cousin, I seem to be the designated researcher for the Ball and Rich ancestors, and related families. I am the CT and CO representative for the Rich Family Association. I truly appreciate all the volunteers who fulfill photo requests. It really makes a "connection" with my ancestors.|

So sorry, Pam - I am now back home about 1800 miles from Wisconsin. Will keep your request in mind if I get up that way again though! My sister Roz was the photographer.
|MixedStock||RE: Mary Eliza Culver Tooker|
You are welcome. I also poste a photo of the grave of Harriet O. Culver who is buried next to her.
|Richard Bailey||RE: Emily Wells|
If you want to correct her name, you should use the edit button on her memorial. Only the person who manages the memorial can actually make changes.

|Caitlin W.||RE: George Leon Bond|
My pleasure! Let me know if there is anyone else you are looking for in this area.
|BloodShot ForSure||RE: Lillis M. Young Rich|
Unfortunately, I'm positive the gravestone is missing. I matched up the names on the gravestones to the left and right of where Lillis' gravestone was supposed to be with the index located there. It weighs on my conscience knowing the gravestone was missing. I hope it gets replaced in the future.

It appears Lillie and Alonzo Young are the parents of Forrest Young based on information extracted from the book, “They Gazed on the Beartooths”.
Mrs. Caleb Rich
One of our early western pioneer women who shared in making western history was Mrs. Caleb Rich. She was born in 1832 in New York State.
At Fredonia, New York, she married Alonzo Young. They had moved West and were located at Hastings, Minnesota, when the Civil War broke out. Their travels took them down the Mississippi River in 1871 via houseboat to St. Louis. From there to Colorado and then on to Bozeman, Montana returning to Young’s Point in 1877, where they located. Here Mr. Young established a stagecoach center.
Mrs. (Young) Rich divorced Mr. Young and married Caleb Rich in 1881 at Coulson, Montnan.
At the Danford Ranch they kept a hotel and stage station. She had a letter from Henry Plummer that told her of hidden gold. She and her brother, Dan, found and re-cached it. Dan returned to Colorado. Mrs. Rich sent for her son, Forrest Young and together they went to Sun River, got the gold, but lost it.
She lived almost a century, reaching the age of 94. She died at the Soldiers Home in Columbia Falls, Montana on August 11, 1925. She was buried in the Soldiers Home Cemetery = J. W. 1964.
Apparently Forrest Young’s ashes were stored at Acacia Park Cemetery and Mausoleum until they were later scattered over the Young’s Point by airplane. See Memorial #176804208 for additional information. You may use this information however you choose. Perhaps it will assist in linking family.
