Currently researching Historic Riverside Cemetery Denver - adding plot info to exisiting memorials and adding missing memorials with photos if and when available. I am also a volunteer with Fairmount and Riverside cemeteries in Denver.

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

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

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 , as we all make mistakes...I am very happy to make those corrections as well

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.

RE: Austin Middlemist - Riverside Cemetery
I have no proof but have never heard of an Auston and feel confident neither Walter or Ruia had an earlier child. My grandfather Walter talked about his little brother Allen and his early death. He is also shown on the 1880 census and would have been 4 1/2 at internment. I know this is not "proof" and I am not sure how to get proof.

RE: Eugene M. Niblo
I am planning on going to Riverside. There are Niblo's there and I believe Eugene M Niblo was single?? and a "sign Painter" so he was not well to do. But I wonder who, if anyone is buried in that big open space in our Niblo-Puntenney plot?
I heard from Olinger's and they did not take care of him.. I live in Elizabeth, CO so am close too.

RE: William Lewis Hay
Thank you so much for the transfer. I'm really curious about them. They were only married 17 months when William died. Then Anna had John shortly after. She died and 9 days later the baby died. I'm disappointed that the family didn't even give them a marker!! I've tried to find an obituary but come up blank. Can't imagine what happened to them. If you find any information about them, please let me know!! Thanks for what you do!!

William Lewis Hay
Thank you for the grave information. You said that it is unmarked. Do you know if his wife and child are there also? Her name was Anna May Doran Hay and the baby was John L. Hay. Thank you for sending me any information you can find.

Catherine Vander Weyden in Riverside?
Could you determine whether Catherine (van Dorpen) Vander Weyden is buried with her husband William (1851-1932) Find A Grave # 34069095.

Catherine van Dorpen was born 1854 in Holland, married William van der Weyden about 1874, and evidently died sometime after 1930. She's listed in 1930 Census of San Antonio, Los Angeles, CA with her daughter and son-in-law: Charles and Eunice Pierce. I've been unable to find Catherine in the 1940 Federal Census but that could be a spelling problem.

Thank You for your assistance.
