Genealogy of the States: Colorado

The next state in my Genealogy of the States list is Colorado. There are also not very many connections to Colorado, but it does show up.

The only main connection is that my wife’s great-great grandfather, George W SHANNON, passed away in Limon, Lincoln Co., Colorado in about 1930, though there isn’t a lot of evidence for it. After his wife died in 1904, we kind of lose him.

I’ve searched through records and can’t seem to track him, though I did find a 1905 Wisconsin Census record that is more than likely him, but he is still in Wisconsin and it is only one year after his wife’s death. The Colorado connection may just be a red herring.

 

About Brian Zalewski

I started genealogy research about mid-1999. My grandfather had passed away in April of that year. Since then I’ve done a lot of research not only for myself, but for friends and other relatives. In 2006, I married the love of my life, Darcy, and welcomed the birth of our daughter, Aerissa Jean, in 2010 and our son, Xander Lee, in 2012. I can’t wait to tell them stories about all of their ancestors.
