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: Older photos at Riverside Cemetery Denver
Hi Robin,
The picture was taken Aug 1984, the little girls are my daughters the oldest Renee Anne and the youngest was Dorothy Lee. Jane Vance Wamsley daughter Georgia Wamsley Mason was my wife Dorothy Ann Mason Parker grandmother. I will look through my pictures and see if I have anymore pictures of Riverside Cemetery. The other picture I posted earlier was for Clarence Wamsley (Jane's husband).
Thank you for your letter.

RE: duplicate cemetery
I've found the easiest way to check for an existing cemetery before creating a new one is to do a search by county from the Find A Grave home page. There's not too many pages of cemeteries in Cass County to scan through.

duplicate cemetery
You have duplicated a cemetery that already existed in Findagrave, which I photographed in 2008, at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&GRid=28162055&CRid=101770&

That's not necessary. I believe the memorials are in better care with you.

I also saw that you created memorials for his wife and daughter. I went ahead and linked them, if that's ok.

Many thanks for the photograph. Amazing that you were able to find his grave in all that snow!

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!
