I have been involved in genealogy for better than 35 years which started because of a bundle of letters that were written mostly by my mother's grandmother to my mother's parents which my mother had kept as keepsakes. These were letters from one part of the family still living in North Carolina to other family members who, at the conclusion of the Civil War, had migrated to Texas, Indian Territory and Idaho Territory. The bundle of letters dating from the early 1880's was discovered in Mother's cedar chest after she died. Over the years I've branched out to include my wife's parents, my half-sister's father and my Swedish grandparents.

Following retirement from the US Army I spent a number of years in retail management and information technology for a major insurance company. Fully retired now, I try to assist others looking for information on their ancestors who once lived in Morgan County, Colorado.

Key family names are: For my wife: Leavitt, McDaniel, Mendenhall and James. For my half-sister: Beauchamp and Jones. For myself: Senter, West, Schönström and Pedersson (Peterson).

CORRECTIONS/ADDITIONS: Use the edit feature within the memorial to let me know of any corrections or additions to my listings so that I can make the changes.

MEMORIAL MANAGEMENT: Unless they are part of my own genealogical research, I will transfer ownership of a memorial to you if you fall within the Find A Grave guidelines. Again, use the edit feature to make your request.

Thank you.
