I am searching for information regarding my grandmother Jessie Thayer
Cook. Last known alive in Steamboat Springs, June 18, 1900.... She was
the wife of Frank H. Cook. Frank and his brother Willard had a ranch at
Sidney.... On the Census 1900 it is listed as Sidney Precinct of Steamboat
Springs. The state has no record of her death, and this was information

I am searching for information on the family of John Mingee (1893-1968) of
Flat Lick, Kentucky, who moved to Phippsburg, Colorado in about 1913. As far
as I know he spent the rest of his life there. He was married to a woman
named Mimie Bray, and
was missing his left leg. John was my grandfather Ben Mingee's brother. Their
mother Dora Townsley (also known as Rose) and sister Ruby Alice Mingee also
moved to Colorado, we think, but aren't sure where. Dora and Ruby may have
had their names changed to McLister or McAllister. The family split up about
1906, and we are trying to connect with this branch that moved west. We have
pictures of these individuals and are anxious to share information.

is buried somewhere in the Hayden area. Any help at all would be more

My father, CLIFFORD D. PARMER, was born Dec 27, 1910 in Steamboat Springs.
His father, JOHN WESLEY PARMER, b. Stone Co. MO and his mother MYRTLE
(MATTOCKS) PARMER, b. Des Moines, IA. and brother, MILTON PARMER may have
lived in town, but John's occupation was listed as "farmer". Myrtle died about
1920 (date and place unknown). If anyone knows anything about this family, I
would appreciate hearing from you. The Parmer surname was also spelled Palmer
at some times. The hand-drawn map of "Steamboat Springs in 1910" which hangs
in their museum shows a "Palmer" house just down the street. It is now a
boutique (or was about 10 years ago when I was there).
