Bio and Links
Bio Photo My journey through my family history began as a project in 7th grade. At that point I had some names, and some locations. Through the years I have come to know so much more about these people that allowed me to be here today, and I'm passing those bits of information on to my own children.

When I'm not traipsing through cemeteries taking pictures or looking for my ancestors, I am an elementary school teacher and administrator. One of my favorite field trips is one where we take the 2nd graders to a local cemetery to find the "famous" people we've learned about in Fort Collins history. For many of the students, it is their first trip to a cemetery.

This is all about connecting families, and documenting history for future generations. If you have information you'd like me to add to a memorial, just let me know. If you'd like to take over management of any of the people I'm not related to, I'd be glad to transfer management over to you.

**If you notice that some of my pictures are sideways or upside down, I'm guessing you're viewing them on an Apple product. I sometimes will use my iPhone if I don't have my camera with me, and for some reason it rotates pictures even if I rotate and save them correctly.

Thank you for the photo of the headstone of my Grandparents Perry Hamilton Farrens & Iola Fay Porterfield Farrens. Guess who I'm named after! I married Faye Wong 1 Apr 1971. I want our headstone to look like theirs. Again, thanks.

I added a photo of the gravestone of Stanley Ward McBirney (122181211) and his wife Elise Conner McBirney (122181177).

Stanley is my 2nd cousin twice removed. I tend their grave at least twice a year.

I certainly appreciate your time and effort in attempting to fill my request for a photo of Don's grave marker. Just sorry it wasn't marked. However, thank you for the location, and have a nice 2014. Shirley
