Bio and Links
Bio Photo You have my permission to use my photos of Headstones in your own genealogy. It would be nice if you'd give me a little credit, but, let's get real, how am I to know? "Photo of headstone courtesy of Findagrave Contributor Beth in Colorado (#47321605)" works for me!
Oh, yes, I have kept the original photos, so if you want a larger picture, just e-mail me and I'll get it to you. I went and bought an external hard drive just to save them all, and am currently in the process of organizing everything. (7/11/2012)

I just got back from vacation in Missouri, July of 2014. It is just beautiful country with all kinds of "Weeeeeeee" Hills. Amish Folks trotting around in their carriages. "Why would anyone leave here?" I ask myself. And then 100 degrees that feels like 115 in the shade. With humidity. I am very, very happy to be back in Colorado. I didn't finish the Masonic Cemetery. I'll try to get back there in a year or so. With something for snakes. I hate snakes.

I love looking for family, no matter how far removed. It's just flat fun! My main interest, however, are Geer's, Hodge's, Hampton's, Cargo's, Walker's, Simmons', Sala's, Snyder's, and any attachments of said families.

I've recently become a little hooked on taking pictures out in Union Highland Cemetery in Florence, Colorado. I do so love UHC. One day I'll have photos of every Headstone out there up on Findagrave, and will have connected my peeps buried out there to each other. It was the Little Ones who got me hooked. "Where's your Momma, Baby? Where's your Papa?" Drove me nuts, so I started trying to find Momma's and Daddy's. I'm now a lost cause.

How on Earth other contributors input 100,000+ Memorials into Findagrave's data base is beyond me. I'm not a big fan of data input; however, Courtney B. (Contributor # 47335873) and I created Memorials for the approximately 15,000 Folks buried out in Lakeside Cemetery in Canon City. It took from October 2012 'til the end of July 2013. This is no piece of cake.

All of this with a full-time job that I'm on-call for 24/7, bowling on Thursdays (which I really suck at, but somebody's got to be the Team Handicap), gardening (both flowers & veggies), and riding bikes with my husband, John, in the mountains on my beloved Harley, Pookah.

Enjoy! And I hope I've helped you in your own searching.


So, this is how I get started on tracking and linking the Folks in Union Highland Cemetery.

1. I notice the Vahldick's and Cowperthwaite's are buried in the same Lot. Gee, why is that?

2. There's only one other Vahldick in the Cemetery, Miss Sadie, and, why lookie there!, her grave is right next to Edward & Mary Ann Cowperthwaite. Two separate Vahldick's by two separate Cowperthwaite's. Bet that means something.

3. Harold's father was born in Illinois; his mother was born in England. Sadie Vahldick was born in England IF she is a Cowperthwaite.

3. In the 1910, 1920 & 1930 census', Mr. Harold Vahldick is living with Mr. David R. Davis. Harold is David's nephew. Oh, gee! Mr. David R. Davis's Lot is right behind Mr. Harold R. Vahldick's plot. Nephew, huh? That means Mr. David R. Davis is married to Harold's mother's sister.

4. Mr. David R. Davis is married to Miss Joan. I'll bet Miss Joan is a Cowperthwaite, etc. etc.

Thank you very much for the information you gathered. The family had lost this history long ago. We are appreciative of your research.

She was the daughter of John Henry McCall (1876 - 1930) and Mary Elizabeth White (1874 - 1943).
