|Bio and Links|
My primary interest is offering biography for attachment to memorials of folks buried in Cheyenne and Laramie, WY, or, to those who left a footprint there and are buried elsewhere. |
Often my interest extends to families who left footprints in Wyoming.
Wyoming is an extraordinary community and the kinship is very special for all who have ever called it home.
Please DO NOT TRANSFER MEMORIALS TO ME.

|LABG||William B. Branson|
I spent 2 + hours researching this Branson & his very accomplished wife. Her story is very interesting. Her grandpa was the Gov. of Illinois; her mother married a Baron. Her name was "Kuhne Beveridge"; she studied in Paris & NY & did lots of famous sculptures that is still sold in galleries today. She & William lived between London & Johannesburg. Unfortunately, they aren't family of my ancestors. But, thank you for sending me the info!

|Nancy Kirschner Shaw||James M Ingersoll|
I have read the wyoming newspapers on line and found several articles on James. He was a very colorful character in our family history and was loved by all. One of my fifth cousins sent me a copy of his will. He had several pieces of land in Idaho too and in the early 1950 the city of Pocatello took the family to court and declared eminent domain on his lots in town, where their city hospital stands today. I had found the information in the Pocatello newspaper. I don't know what they paid the family for it though, my great aunt went to Idaho to represent her mother. He had provided for all his nieces and nephews at the time of his death. I did post a portrait of him on ancestry, it came from my Great Grandmother Baird. Most of James' siblings lived in Kansas, several of his sisters were teachers and two of brothers were lawyers. Their mother died in Kansas early on during the Civil War and their father didn't find out until he came home from the war in 1865.

Thank-you for the info, are you also related to the Ingersoll family. I actually went to Laramine just to photograph the grave markers for James and his family a couple of years ago. In August we are planning to stop again in Laramine so I can go to the library to look for more info on James. His sister Isabella was my Great Great Grandmother. I have an old pic of him on his horse but haven't put it on ancestry.com yet. Did you know he was friends with Teddy Roosevelt and visited him before Teddy died in Cove Neck, Oyster Bay, NY. At one time the Ingersoll family had also lived in that area. I see Charles Courant had mentioned James (page 619 & 620) in his first book, it's sad the other two books never got published. I knew James worked for the government in the transportation department and left in 1871, but he was not a soldier so doesn't show up in the military records. I wish we were stoping in Cheyenne instead of Laramine so I could see the Coutant Collection but I'm hoping to find more info on him in Laramine.

|Anna||Martha at Carl's grave|
I am so glad you motivated me to find that photo (I had a cousin send it to me). I should think anyone who's interested in Greenhill cemetery would like to see what it was like, circa 1930-1932. If I'm lucky enough to keep the memorial, I'm going to request another photo, taken from the same spot so as to compare then and now.

|Anna||Noah and Stella's grave|
I found the photo of Martha Wardrup visiting her son's grave. I'm going to post it on Carl's grave.
And I see my memorials are dupes. I'm going to beg the original person to delete and let me keep mine-never done that before and dont know how it'll go over.

Hi again, Clint! Yes, I would like a list of the unpublished biographies. That would be great to add to my resources. Thanks! Betty
There was also a border around the whole plot. I'll see if I can find the photo of his mother visiting the grave. It looks like she's out on the treeless plains somewhere standing behind this stone, probably taken not long before her death in 1936.

Noah and Stella are buried in Greenhill, with his parents (no stones) and siblings. There is no guarantee that the stone exists anymore. If you look at the photo of it taken before 1936-it may not have survived. Looks like a homemade stone to me.
They've been dead nearly a hundred years, and the memories of them are long gone. I had a hard time identifying them in their pbotos and if it hadnt been for a miraculous bit of luck I never would have.
