Shelley----Friday 18 September 1998

Searching these names in and around Eagle county: CARTEEN, BROGAN, DOVER, WILLIAMS, MAXSON Looking for information on the CARTEEN family. Most of the family is in the 1880 census for Custer Co. Peter and Melissa CARTEEN had several children. John, William, Minnie, Martha, Alice, Josephine, Peter and Lars. The last info I can find is of Hattie. I found an obituary in the Eagle county Blade 1907, where she was married to a Robert BROGAN and having a young child from a previous marriage called little Arthur DOVER. She was living in Red Cliff at the time. I see no mention of her father, and brother Lars. Also I see her mother, Melissa, must have remarried as her name was listed as Mrs. T. F. WILLIAMS. I do know about Alice as she is great grandmother of my husband and married Orelnzer Stephen MAXSON, but the rest of the family kind of disappeared. I would appreciate any information.

Thanks, Shelley
