Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native of Longmont, CO. I'm been interested in genealogy for almost 50 years but I did take time off to raise a family. Research is much easier now then it was 30 years ago. The Denver Library and Federal Archives are not far away and that has been a help.

When I started taking photos my husband didn't come but after a visit to a cemetery that was on a one lane road on the side of a mountain he was hooked. The markers were very old and very interesting, so now he willing walks around a cemetery with me as we locate the markers that were requested. He trims the grass and pulls the weeds around the markers to be sure I get a good photo. We also stop and visit relatives and friends and look at interesting markers. The two remarks on markers I have really liked are "This is the only stone she left unturned." and "I told you I was sick."

You have my permission to use headstone photos that I have posted for your genealogy record.

Thank you so much for being willing to do this for me. I think that it would be better to wait until spring to take the pictures. You are wonderful to go and get so many of these photos for me.

No I have not been able to locate what cemetery they are buried at. If I locate will let you know.

RE: Ruggles in Mtn. View Cemetery, Longmont
I don't understand about the library. Do they have a good Genealogy section there?

Hi. I didn't think that you were related to these Ruggles. I know about taking pic's of graves, especially if a family member asks you to. I'm thinking that somewhere along the line, I am related to them. Actually, I live in Dacono & have visited the graves.

Hello B.J.~
As you can see from my name, I am a Ruggles. Do you have any information on this family or have you been in any kind of contact with them? I would really love to be able to connect with them.
Thank you so much,
Michelle Ruggles
