Quintana, Frank
I am interested in the genealogy of Quintana's in the Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico area.
My wife's Father is supposed to come from Colorado (down state I believe) but though misfortune he died back in the 60's while my wife was yet a small child leaving behind little information regarding his family.
This is the best information we have on him
1) His name was Frank Quintana
2) He had a sister Isabella who died quite young
3) He was likely born in the first 6 years of this century
4) His wife believes he mentioned a brother
5) He played Guitar professionally
6) His wife said he had lived on a reservation as a child where his father worked. Cortez area possibly
7) He eventually moved to Chicago
This is obviously a very slim thread of information to go on and I don't expect miracles. If you have family information you are willing to share, I would appreciate it. If I collect enough information to make it worth the effort I would like to create a website so that all interested Quintanna's and their decendants could participate and share in their own history.
Please contact me if you are interested.
Thank you.

My ancestor, Cynthia Ann Woodring Tedrow Ramp Hogan married her second husband, William Ramp in 1865 in Warren Co, IL. They soon moved to Lyon Co, KS. He died in 1881 and mentioned in his will a son, Jeremiah, age 30, who "lived in Colorado". Am looking for his descendants or any other data on him. This is for the unknown county query page.


Posted by W. C. Reed on Mon, 10 Aug 1998, in response to RAMP/TEDROW/WOODRING(RUFF?), posted by Dot Hogan on Sat, 04 Jul 1998

You might want to post on the Woodring Family Forum. It could yield some results. Good luck.

Looking for information on Benjamin RAMSEY. I believe he was born near Brown County, OH but am unsure of the date. Found an obituary of Julia Frances RAMSEY Prickett stating that he was her orphaned nephew and had died in Colorado. The obit was written in 1937 and Ben may have died in 1912. His sister, Lenora RAMSEY BUSHHORN, was my grandmother.
Any information would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

I am seeking any information on a great aunt, Ivor ADAMS REESE. She was born in Johnson County TN, or Watauga County, NC before 1902 to Willett Adams and Alice Norris Adams. She married Carl REESE in Johnson County, TN (I believe) 01-26-1916. Shortly after the married, they left Watauga County, NC and moved to Colorado. They had 2 children, Burl Reese and Glen(n?) Reese. It is my understanding that Ivor was killed in an automobile accident somewhere "north of Denver". Any information on the date, location and circumstances of Ivor's death as is any information on Burl & / or Glen Reese will be appreciated.

I am looking for relatives belonging to my mother's biological family. She was born, Helen Tekoucich, in CO, in 1925 the daughter of Josef Tekoucich and Caroline Skriner (I believe this was a common law marriage). She was the youngest of 10 children. The death of her father & poor health of her mother, required she be placed up for adoption. Adoption occurred in 1928 in Pitkin County CO. Her grandfather signed the adoption papers, his name was Anton J. Skriner or Shriner. Names of her brothers and sisters: Josephine BD 7/20/1901(married name Rande), Francis BD 1903 DD 1917, Joe BD 9/5/1906, Edward BD 1909, Edith BD 7/20/1911 (married name Richards), Celia BD 3/16/1913, Albina BD 1915, DD 1971, Leo BD 3/12/1917, George DB 2/2/1919, Helen BD 7/19/25 DD 9/11/95. My mother's name was changed to Sarah Jane Wernette when she was adopted. I am not sure of the accuracy of the birth and death dates of the siblings.
Internet searches have produced the following:
Military Registration
Tekoucich, Josef 19 Mar 1879 W naturalized citizen

LENA Tekoucich 7 May 1890 Oct 1969 81601 (Glenwood Springs, CO)
MABEL Tekoucich 2 Apr 1911 Jan 1983 81650 (Rifle, Garfield, CO)
EDWARD Tekoucich 1 Jan 1910 18 Dec 1991 (No Location Given)

I located an article from a past edition of the Aspen Times:

Vol 117 Num 27 8/3 & 4/96 paragraph about George & Pepper Tekoucich 50th wedding anniversary.
I also found reference to Leo and Edward Tekoucich in an excerpt from a book titled "Aspen: The Quiet Year".
I have tried to find telephone listings for Leo and George, without any success.
I would appreciate any help.
Thank You
