Phyllis Cooper My goal in being a contributor is sincere and quite simple... To offer another the same comfort I have received in viewing postings of my own family members, as well as, to reward future generations with historical preservation and record keeping.
If at any time you have a question, concern or find an inaccuracy in a posting. Or if I have entered any of your family or friends and you would like me to add additional information to their Bio's, Click on edit in the top right corner. Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial (the person you are writing about) to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row, Would you be proud of them? Or don't you really know? Strange discoveries are often made, In climbing the family tree. Sometimes one is found in line Who shocks the progeny.
If you could see your ancestors All standing in a row, Perhaps there might be one or two You wouldn't care to know.
Now turn the question right about And take another view. When you shall meet your ancestors Will they be proud of you?
To forget one's ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root.
RE: Photo request There are five or six newer, tended graves with no headstones, so I am waiting to hear about those graves. Perhaps Mr. Lawrence doesn't have a headstone. Today was the first day everything was dry, so I went looking again. No luck. I will find out; it will just take me a little longer. I'll keep you posted. Best regards, Lisa Bentz
Photo request You requested a grave photo of James Thornton Lawrence, which I accepted. I've been through the Elizabeth Cemetery twice now and have not seen his marker. Are you sure he was interred here? I have a call into a local contact who supposedly keeps records but have not received a call back yet. I also found an online site for Colorado graveyards, but they only go up to 2012. It has been wet and mucky at the cemetery for several days now so once it dries up enough to go back, I will try one more time to find James's grave site and get a photo.
