I am looking for the family or grandfather
of my mother, Renee Ansell, born in northern Colorado on
her grandfather's ranch in 1904. It was quite a large ranch, which
may have extended into Laramie County, Wyoming.She often described
life on it.
My mother's father died and her mother married again and had 5
more children. Her grandfather sent my mother to St. Louis to
board at Madames of the Sacred Heart for her education, because
of bad feelings with her step-father. She never went back to stay
permanently, instead going to Chicago, then to New York where
she met my father, a journalist. I would so like to find out about
the family, especially her grandfather, She said she was French,
Scotch Irish and Penna. Dutch. After her death I heard from someone
in my father's family that she was also part Indian.
If you have knowledge of a large, early Colorado ranch, any information
would be greatly appreciated. (I thought I remember her saying
that Owen Wister's " The Virginian " was about the family's

I am trying to locate information
about William H. FLINT, and/or any children he may have
had. He was the son of Homer P. FLINT (born in Rockport,
Illinois, Dec. 1, 1893, died at 53 in Colorado Springs, CO. August
18, 1947, buried in Evergreen Cemetery). William's mother was
either Helen H. FLINT (married to Homer February 22, 1928)
or Bertha E. FLINT (which was a subsequent marriage), so
William would have been born between 1928 and sometime prior to
his father's death in 1947.
Homer's sister was Oclah FLINT MEYERS, who would have been
William's aunt. Homer's mother and father, William H. FLINT'S
Grandmother and Grandfather, were William M. FLINT(1873-1940)and
Mary Jane FLINT (1872-1932), who are both buried in Evergreen
Cemetery, lot #232. Homer's uncle and aunt, Porter FLINT
(1872-1955) and his wife Edith FLINT (1875-1962) are also
buried in Evergreen Cemetery, lot #234. They had a daughter, Myrtle,
who would have been Homer's cousin and Myrtle may have had a son
named Jack FLINT of Denver (at least he is listed as Porter's
grandson in his obituary).
Homer P. Flint was my father's birth father, who left the family
when my father was 6 years old (in 1923). My father was Jack William
FLINT (born October 22, 1917), and he is now 82...and in
very good health. His mother, my grandmother, Alice Wright FLINT,
remarried William NYSTROM, a wonderful man, who legally
adopted my father and his brother, Garth W. FLINT (1921-1985),
so they became Jack & Garth NYSTROM, which is my maiden name,
and William NYSTROM is the only grandfather I ever knew.
The six children of Garth (3) and Jack (3) are very interested
in knowing about WILLIAM H. FLINT, as he is our father's
half-brother and if he had children, they are our half-cousins.
He would be between the ages of late 50's to 70, depending upon
when he was born.
I have discovered this information through Evergreen Cemetery
records on-line and through a wonderful librarian, Marilyn Chang,
at Denver Public Library, as well as with the assistance of a
researcher in Colorado named Linda Vixie, who has been really
helpful. Could you please advise me of any suggestions you have
to proceed further in my search for WILLIAM H. FLINT. Many

Frank immigrated from Sweden in 1888 and was then known as Frans
Ludvig Flinta. Upon arrival in the US he continually used
the last name Fogel. However, he changed his first name
from Frank to Ludwig on occassion without any real reason. He
would have been in Colorado sometime between 1908 and 1918. This
is when he disappeared from the Cleveland City Directory and my

Frank's birth date was June 21, 1858 according to an article that

that immigrated to the US. Can you provide me with some guidance
as to how to determine whether or not he passed away in Colorado

Mary Unknown SLAUGHTER moved
to CO in 1860 after her husband, John, died there in the summer
of that year. She brought with her her infant son, Joseph Russell,
b. 5 Feb 1860 in Albany, Athens, OH.
According to Joseph's obituary in the Glenrock Independent, Glenrock,
WY, 22 Jan 1948, he was survived by a half-brother, Charles CRAWFORD.
Also, it says that a nephew, Walter SMITH of Longmont,
CO, had died only 7 hours earlier than his own death on 14 Jan
1948. Another bit of info says that Joseph grew up in CO and didn't
leave there until he was about 18.
Mary is my gggrandmother. From the info in the obit, it would
seem that she married a CRAWFORD in CO and had at least
one more child.
From the 1910 census that Joseph filled out, Mary was born in
I would like any information on Mary and Charles. Information
on Charles' ancestry and descendants would be a nice bonus.

To whom this may concern,
I am looking for the parents of my great-grandfather, Henry Strecker.
He was born on December 13, 1906 somewhere in Colorado. Henry's
parents emigrated from Germany/Russia. My great-aunt believes
that their names were Heinrich (Henry) Strecker and Eva
(Anna?) Ring. But I'd like to know that these names are
correct for sure. I know that this query goes against what your
guidelines say to go by, but I'm hoping that with his name and
exact birthday you may be able to help. Thank you for your help.

I have a letter from my great aunt,
who claims that her real father, THORNTON, first name unknown,
lost his wife shortly after she was born and left her with my
great grandfather in Minnesota, then THORNTON proceeded
to California but became sick and died someplace in Colorado.
My great aunt was born in 1868 somewhere between Ohio and Minnesota.
She was told that her mother's name was Agnes Kent, but
have been unable to find any information on her, even though I
have Kents in my family background.
In some graveyard I hope someone has seen the name of Thornton
on a marker.

Betty Lou was born in Colorado 10
April 1921, the only child of elderly parents. She was of Dutch
descent, & Protestant religion. She lived in California from
the time she was a small child. Her mother died when she was 10
of a heart problem. She then went to live with an aunt. Her father
remarried after the death of her mother. She probably lived in
the San Francisco, California area around 1950. Father's name
may have been Robert or Paul. I would love to know her parents
names and their history, and about her father's remarriage. Thank
you so much for your help.

Hi, Sorry to bother you with this
question - but I was told my husband's great grandmother, that
we thought has died, moved to Colorado, don't know where and don't
know how to find out. Her name was Hallie (Mahala) Whitehead,
she was born about 1868 in Jackson County, Tennessee. She had
married a Ben Chism in TN and had a daughter Mary and then
there wasn't any sign of her, so we assumed she had died, her
granddaughter died last year at the age of 96, she left a note
saying her grandmother moved to Colorado and her name was Hallie
Whitehead. We do not have access to the 1900 Colorado Census,
can you tell me how or who I might contact that could help us.
Thank you for your time.
