I would like to introduce Terry Blevins. He is a Lincoln County historian and resident. He has been "researching Lincoln County newspapers that are on microfilm or that I've found in old sheds, basements, etc., digging out local history as well as death and marriage information."

Terry has read everything available between 1890 and 1914. He is transcribing all death and marriage references that he finds, and many other historical facts of interest. He has thousands of files on disk. Terry is also walking the county cemeteries, copying information from tombstones and adding to a database. This project is about 80 percent complete. Terry plans to continue this project comparing death information in his databases to help locate unmarked graves.

Terry, upon request of the Lincoln County Clerk , recently completed and update of the old "brief" county history kept on file at the office for people making inquiries. This is available from the county clerk or from Terry … for the asking.

Terry does not charge for his services at this time, although he gladly accepts donations, and does ask for reimbursement of copy and mailing expenses.

Thank you, Terry, for your generous offer of help!

OTHER SUGGESTED RESOURCES:



MAGAZINE RESOURCE:
Glen R. Durrell's "Homesteading in Colorado" article in The Colorado Magazine Spring 1974 Vol LI Number 2 is most informative and interesting. His article covers 1908-1916 when he was age 6-14, including excellent photographs. Only family names are W. B. DURRELL



BOOK RESOURCE:
Hal Borland's autobiography "High, Wide and Lonesome" describing his family homesteading 1910-1913 is also a wonderful read.



NEWSPAPER RESOURCE:
Colorado's Historic Newspaper Collection - provides "searchable" access (January 1902 - May 1922) to "The Range Ledger" published in Hugo.
