Bio

I was born and raised part of my life in Boulder, Colorado, and call Boulder home. I still have many relatives and friends living in the Boulder area. I have been doing research for many years on my family. It started when my grandfather was always telling me about his mother Marie and how much the Statue of Liberty meant to him. Then I branched out wanting to know more about my mothers side of the family. Since then I have made many research trips to various states searching out many areas of my research for different family members. I have met many relatives along the way and made many friends. One of my biggest thrills is when I have hit a brick wall and then out of the blue a little more of the puzzle comes together. I am featured here with my G G Grandfather Willis West who fought in the Civil War. He was in Co. F, 46 Illinois Infantry, enlisted in 1861 , mustered out 24 Dec 1862 due to severe injuries when he was in the Battle Shiloh (Pittsburg Landing by the Tennessee river) Prev fought in Fort Donaldson without receiving injuries. After recouping from his injuries he was mustered out due to disabilities and returned home to his wife and family. I carry a special place in my heart for all those that fought in the Civil War. Recently I ran across a relative that fought in the Civil War that really touched me. He fought for the Union in Mo. Was in the 2nd light Artillery Unit and was deaf.

When requesting a transfer and it is granted, please do not delete transferred person and make your own.

Anyone is welcome to post any picture I have, as long as it is on Ancestry and not for any promotional of any sort.

We are all here for the same reason, to find our relatives and hopefully help you find some of yours. Please show respect when posting messages to me or any other find a graver. This is not the place to post negative comments. Find A Grave is a place to remember those that have gone on before.
