I am trying to confirm a birthplace, birthname and date. The
'family lore' says Caroline Belle
, born 27 June
1909, Cimarron, NM. BUT the 1910 and 1920 census [in Trinidad,
CO] give Colorado as birthstate.
There was possibly another name given for recording which was
later changed to Caroline Belle 'which suited better' [hearsay
has the first one starting with a J or G]. Her parents were Herbert
Lyman 'Bert' and Anna Laura [or Laura Anna] Sheets Doil PRATT.
Will appreciate any help with this sticky one!
Thank you, Elaine.

I am searching for information on Patrick H.
wife Mary Elizabeth (
, or any of their
descendants. They both were born and married in IL. Under doctors
orders to move Mary to a "healthier climate" they moved
to Colorado, where Mary died in 1903 from consumption.
I have the names eight children,
but I believe they may have had 12 chiildren. The names that
I have are: Mary Ann, Johanna Harriet, James, John Archibald,
William Richard, Henry, and Patrick Everett.
All of the above children were
born before 1903, probably in IL, a slight possibility one or
two could have been born in Nebraska, as I have found a mention
of them having lived in Hamilton County, Nebraska before moving
to Colorado. I doubt they lived in Nebraska for a long time.
