1998 Queries For Baca County bar

Elaine Goodner 5/7/1998 WALLING -- I am looking for information on the ancestors of Norma Goldie WALLING, born in Stonington, Baca Co, CO, 5 June 1926. She married Daniel W. Johnson.

Donna Hunter 5/7/1998 WILLIAMS -- Would like to correspond with others who had ancestors who homesteaded in Baca Co, Colorado in the early 1900s. My grandparents were Clyde Williams and Ada (Gold) Williams.

Anita Allee 8/7/1998 BUTLER -- My great grandfather, JOHN HENRY BUTLER, homesteaded in Baca County from 1889-1899. He came that summer/fall and built a two-story home with his 2 sons. Later some of the women and children came. Do you have him listed in the Veterans' Census? He was a Confederate from MO. We did find the 1/2 section of land they settled on last October and greatly enjoyed walking over it. We later found pictures of  the house, buildings and stone fences. It was eery to walk over the land where they walked 100 years ago and have the sun go down and feel how they might have felt living there. Later we read some letters describing their loneliness, conditions and work. My grandmother told many tales of their "homesteading" days. She was 8 yrs. Old at the time they went and 18 when they went back home. She drove a covered wagon back to MO with some of their possesions when they returned after realizing they were not to be dryland farmers. Thanks, Anita Allee.

Plus I have considerable information on the "Chenoweth" surname of Baca County, Colorado. Even though I live in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, I am willing to be a contact person for these two surnames from Baca County, Colorado.
