Bio and Links
Bio Photo "Grandchildren are the dots that connect the lines from generation to generation." Lois Wyse (20th century)

"Life is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset. What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others." S Pierce in memorial of "Woody" and Wilda Woodward.

I am a grandmother picking up the genealogy work started by my father, mother and uncle. Now, I am combining and elaborating on this work, linking my family genealogy (ancestors and descendents) and adding memorials for family and friends.

I assisted with the Centennial Chapter NSDAR project of photographing the headstones in Weld County Colorado.

If you have family whose memorials I manage, I will be glad to transfer these to you. If you want to copy any of the photos I have posted, feel free to as long is it is not used for commercial purposes.

"Upon my death I authorize any of my memorials to be transferred to any FAG contributor as they are requested."

RE: Charles Pennock
Thanks for the info.I know where the flour mill was, since there is a fish hatchery building there now, at the south end of Watson Lake. It was a stone building that was jointly constructed by Jacob and Theo Kutcher. The mill that I'm curious about is the sawmill in Bellvue. I don't know if the flouring mill was ever used as a sawmill, though it might have been. I have several photos of sawmills in Colorado in my grandfather's photo collection. One of them is probably the one in Bellvue, but they are not labeled.I live in Idaho, so I don't get to Fort Collins very often.

RE: Odelia Peterson
And with my newly grown beard, I even have the fuzz! :-) Whilst photographing another stone this am, I also photographed the marker for James Brinks in which you showed interest with your flower contribution. It may only be a temporary marker but will suffice for now.

RE: Charles Pennock
Do you know the location of Jacob's sawmill? I couldn't tell exactly where it was, though he and Kutcher built a grist mill down river from James Obenchain's sawmill on the Poudre.

RE: Charles Pennock
Yes, Jacob is my great-grandfather. I'm doing a book about him and his family. It's just about finished, but I keep finding more and more to add! It's so interesting. Jeanne

Thank you for the additional information for Marjorie, it has been uploaded. If you are a family member or a close friend of Marjorie, I would be more then happy to "Transfer" the record to you. I did remove the names of the children and just left the first letter due to privacy concerns. Have a nice day.

RE: Walter Foss # 82194280
Walter Foss Jr. is my 5th great grandfather.

This is what I received from a curator who is doing the Foss line:
"Walter, b. 1708, had only one wife and she was Sarah Babb. They were married in Greenland, NH, 13 Sept 1726 when he was 18 and she only 15. Walter didn't die in 1791 -- that was his oldest son Walter Jr. (1727-1791). Walter Sr. died in Saco on 4 July 1784, age 76. Also, Sarah (Babb) Foss didn't die in 1755; rather, she died in Saco on 14 April 1776."

I believe You should have Walter Foss Sr, and not Jr.

Also, can you make a scan or photograph of the bible so there some validation that your date is correct, and also it would be nice to add to our family tree. :)

RE: George Stearly
Okay, I've transferred photo and flowers (although my photo doesn't add much except maybe true color of stone). You may now delete your duplicate memorial (only creator may delete).

Photo in old Bible
I recently received an old Bible from a niece. It was originally presented to Barbara Rae Fritz by the Second Presbyterian Sunday School, Fort Collins, Colorado on 5 Jun 1938. There is a photo of a young woman in it which I believe is Barbara. I added it to Find A Grave Memorial# 64940234.
By your profile and memorials, you seem to be the family genealogist and her cousin. If it is not her let me know and I will remove it. If a family member would like to have this Bible, I can send it to them.

triplicate - George Stearly
re: George Stierly/Stearly, born 1849 in Wurtemburg Germany to Barbara Kraft. There appear to be THREE memorials of the same grave in Fort Collins CO.

A) 43608189, created 2009 by "Derald Johnson" 46855913. Headstone, years from headstone, and nothing else.

B) 102167496, created 2012 by "Judson Rhoads" 47089591. Headstone, headstone context(!), portrait(!), full dates for birth and death.

C) 174111247, created 2016 by "KET" 47292223. Headstone (detached?), birth/death dates and places(!), spouse link(!), family bio(!), two flowers(!).

Usually I prefer to keep the oldest, but this time I would rather roll everything into C to keep its flowers, spouse, and family background. Then again, I'm not the creator of any of them.

I'm posting this same message to all three of you. Please work it out amongst yourselves.
