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

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

Hello,
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)...my first thought in working with gravestones and markers of all kinds...is 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.

RE: Edward Jackson @ Riverside
Wow, that was quick! Less than 30 seconds....
You were obviously sitting at your PC. And I am in Europe, time here 5.35 a.m.
But my PC is updating after ONE year, so it is taking longer than intended....
If you need to check dates, names, etc. use Familysearch.org, which is similar to ancestry.com, but free.
Via ancestry.com I am checking all persons born before 1810 and died after 1910.... HUNDREDS!
But most are typos, like 1784 should be 1874, sometimes even on tombstones.
However, some people were 115 or over, even noted on the tombstones. VERY interesting!
Bedtime here... really.
Good night.

RE: Edward Jackson @ Riverside
I did some research. From Familysearch.org (free)
(sorry, I am using a Spanish versión):
Nombre: Edward Jackson
Tipo de evento: Census
Año del evento: 1900
Lugar del evento: Precincts 2-3 Denver city Ward 1, Arapahoe, Colorado, United States
Sexo: Male
Edad: 29
Estado civil: Married
Raza: White
Raza (original): w
Relación con el jefe de familia: Head
Relación con el jefe de familia (original): Head
Años de matrimonio: 6
Fecha de nacimiento: Mar 1871
Lugar de nacimiento: Florida
Año de matrimonio (aproximado): 1894
Lugar de nacimiento del padre: Florida
Lugar de nacimiento de la madre: Florida

So, he was born in Florida in March 1871, which indeed makes his age 56.
Have a nice day!

RE: Riverside Cemetery - Denver
Hi Robin:

I'm not an official volunteer at Riverside. My interest in block 14 stems from my Grandparents and one aunt are buried there. On one of my visits to Riverside Cemetery I acquired a copy of the page out of one of the books in their office. It was a list of all those buried in that section including my grandparents. Knowing what I've gone through finding information about my relatives, made me think that maybe I could list those on that page in Find A Grave, for others to find them. At the time I didn't stop to think that the dates listed for each person was probably the internment date and not the death date. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. As you come across a needed change I will be more than happy to change the date accordingly.
Thanks
Howard Martin, Tucson, AZ

RE: Florence M Oliver
Thank you! We searched and searched for a stone and were quite disappointed. At least we got a lot of exercise. Thanks for letting us know.

Thanks for your suggestion. I don't post obits. I added some information. If you want more than that, I can transfer the memorial to your care and you can add what you want. Just let me know. Thanks. Debbie J.
