My research appears to indicate Ellen Massier may be the person who commtted suicide in the house at that location. I am considering buying the property and am looking for any information available related to this sad event in the property's history. Timothy Hall March 18, 2001.


I am seeking information on the 6/29/1918 auto accident at Larkspur in Douglas County in which my grandmother, Helen (Murray) Niles (Mrs. R.W. Niles) was killed. Helen was a Denver, Colorado resident at the time. I believe Tyler Brandt was driving and the group of friends was planning to attend the grand opening of the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs. My mother, Jane Ruth Niles, was injured in the accident. The event was written up in the local papers. If possible I would like to learn the names of others in the car at the time.

Jonathan Radcliffe TYSON and his wife Mary Stocking Tyson share a common death date of 19 May 1864 in Castle Rock, Colorado. Jonathan was about 30 years old at the time.
