Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm helping to further put Mt Nebo Memorial Gardens In Aurora, CO online.

April 2013- 2104 - Continuing to re-walking areas that have temporary markers or newly placed stones and providing photos.

I have photographed the following Sections:
**** I have completed most photos of the sections and will be uploading missing photos and records over the next several weeks and months.****


N18 - Reviewing and Adding

177 MT NEBO - COMPLETED 7/2014

Completed photos in Comstock Luthern Cemetery, Comstock, MN (Clay County)- Anything after June 2012 has not been photographed or added.

Photos have been completed for Horace Cemetery Cass County, Horace ND - will work to add those photos to the memorials. Fall/Winter 2012

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.

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.

I am fairly new to this site, so 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.

Emma Amdursky and Samuel Gardner
Dear Robin,

Thank you so much for transferring Emma Amdursky and her husband Samuel Gardner to my care. I will get back in touch with you about other family as I work.

Genealogy has taken me on the most amazing journey and I thank you for being part of it.

Thank you for doing all that you do to remember those who have passed.

God Bless,

RE: Ellsworth Payton/Charles Lewis Payton

Do you happen to remember how close Charles L Paytons graveside was to Mary Ann Beasley Hoyt Payton or Ellsworth Payton. I came across another relative who had a misprinted birth date on her gravestone and I am wondering if its possible Charles L Payton could be the same Charles Lewis Payton I am looking for. If you don't remember, no worries.

Frank Teats' grave #37774041
Sorry, I got that backwards before. Frank Teats appears to be buried in Littleton, not Denver, now that you have confirmed that.

Frank Teats' grave #37774041
Thanks for looking for this grave marker. I think Frank Teats is buried in Denver. Just wanted to make sure he was not in Littleton, since someone had created this memorial, #37774041.

RE: Ellsworth Payton/Charles Lewis Payton
I thank you from my heart for going out of your way to try and locate my great great grandfather. I will continue to search for him. Thank you so much for photographing his son (my great grandfather)Ellsworth Payton. I am glad to have that picture.

You truly are an angel. Thank you so much for all you do for so many people. May God bless you!

RE: Ellsworth Payton/Charles Lewis Payton
Thank you so much for your efforts in obtaining the headstone for Ellsworth. Even though there seems to be no headstone. That is so interesting that it is not there and explains why he was never added on to Find A Grace until I did it myself. I also appreciate you trying to locate his father Charles Lewis Payton. I am very baffled as to where Charles is. His daughter told me a letter dated in 1969 that he and his wife and two sons were in the Riverside cemetery and everyone except Charles has been found.

I thank you so much for the work you have done. I don't know that Charles Lewis Payton will be found. I was hopeful that he would be but with what you have found it sure doesn't sound like.

RE: Photo for Erwin's Memorial
There is a stone!! I had one placed there about 15 years ago. The cemetery sent me a picture of it - how can this be??

Could the grass have grown over it? I will find the picture that was sent to us and post it here - I just wanted to check the condition of the marker. It has a lamb on it and reads "precious son and brother."

Where do I go from here? Do I contact the cemetery and ask about the marker? This just beaks my heart.

Thank you for your efforts.

Riverside Cementary
Thank you for your response. I called the cemetery and found out the following:

Erwin Lamont Persons
Block 10 Lot 57 Section 5

They gave me the following suggestions. My brother was a newborn baby when he died so she said that you would want to stop into the office because this is going to be hard to find - she said it's tricky. Now maybe not for you :) but I thought I would just pass on the information. She said the office hours are M-S 10am-3pm. Again - you probably know this but . . .

Thank you again!
