Bio Photo Some info on current cemetery projects I'm working on or have recently completed.

Researching Historic Riverside Cemetery Denver - adding plot info to exisiting memorials and adding missing memorials with photos if and when available.

My Nebo - Aurora, CO - All sections walked and memorials added as of Dec 2014

I am Robin Brilz and I currently reside in Aurora, CO. I am a Records and Archives Manager for a large engineering firm. I volunteer my time to help complete and document the histories and information of our cemeteries and graveyards. In my many walkings and wanderings... I have noticed the many missing records and photos from the Find A Grave site. I will be working to help correct those missing memorials

View list of Memorials with NO GRAVESTONE - working to complete those photos within Mt Nebo.

As I've continued to search out my Russian German ancestry, I'll be adding those missing records and photos of grave stone markers to Find A Grave as well. Should you have a request..please don't hesitate to ask, I'll certainly try to help you out as best I can.

I have always been drawn to our cemeteries and often wonder about the people and their stories. I have been interested in gravestone rubbings as well.(keep in mind that I do not use items that leave behind marks) first thought in working with gravestones and markers of all DO NO HARM!
I found that the term is "taphophile" or "lover of tombstones", never knew there was such a thing!

I will transfer memorials as requested to family members, so please don't hesitate to ask for any transfers.

If I mess up or do something incorrectly, please remind me gently, so I can make any corrections and I learn from my mistakes!

Should a family member wish to have a grave stone photo removed or a memorial removed for privacy concerns, please, please...let me know. I do not want to offend or cause any issues for anyone.
Thank to all volunteers on F.A.G....this is how I was able to locate "missing" family members...some that I never had the honor to meet.

Strawson family
Thanks again for the photo, Robin! I am going to see if I can figure out the Richard Strawson issue. I do have a feeling he might be buried with his mother and brother and sister-in-law in Chicago.

RE: E Mallory Photo request agt Riverside
Thank you Robin for the very quick response.
Iím sorry to hear there is no stone.
Yes I would appreciate a photo of his grave site with maybe a land mark reference, like a tree or building.
Thank you again, I really appreciate the work you do.
I hope one day to be able to visit the sight.
Yours Truly,

Ollie Myrtle Henderson and the Strawson family
Hi Robin - Well, thank you so much for your offer to try to find the obit! That would be great! (If you find it, maybe you could send it to my e-mail on my contributor page). I really appreciate that! So while I was checking back last night on Riverside Cemetery, I did find a few more distant relatives there - the Strawson family - Fred Strawson and his wife Luella and his brother, Richard Strawson. They are all in Block 19, Lot 151, so I'll do a photo request for them. I figured that if you were going, I might as well ask now ; ) It is very interesting on the cemetery notes for Richard G. Strawson (1883-1906). It says in the notes - delivered to Sullivan Mort. on Sept 5 1926. Not sure what that means. Do you think he might have been moved? Would love your opinion on that. Thanks again so much for all your help!!

Ollie Myrtle Henderson in Riverside Cemetery
Hello and thank you so much for your quick reply on the photo request for O. Myrtle Henderson! If you have the time or energy to do an area photo, I would really appreciate that. Maybe that way others can see that she has no headstone and maybe someday someone will put one there for her. I am also going to see if I can find someone who can help me find her obit that appeared in the Rocky Mountain News on Oct. 5, 1945 and see if I can find her maiden name in there. I am related (through marriage) to the Henderson family and the nephew of Grover Cleveland Henderson told me that none of the family ever knew what happened to Grover. He worked for the WPA buidling project in Denver and I can't find him after 1940. Your information has already helped me a great deal, so thank you!

RE: Harld Lee Trasnsfer request

I would be happy to send information for you to put through. Since Harold is my grandfather I would still like a transfer if you are comfortable with that.
