DeWilton Emory Curtis

We finally have a picture of DeWilton's headstone. I added details about his place of burial to the Find-A-Grave website and requested a photo. I've taken pictures of headstones for others who have made similar requests. Cemeteries I've taken pictures at for Find-A-Grave requests include Salt Lake City Cemetery, Sandy City Cemetery, Lake Hills Memorial Park, and Provo City Cemetery.

DeWilton's place of burial is one that I'll likely not ever see in person. He was buried at the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Buena Vista, Chafee Co., Colorado. Someone who lives near that area walked the cemetery, found the headstone, and added it to the Find-A-Grave website. If you have a minute, please add a comment to the photographer's page to tell them thank you for taking the time to take the picture for us. If you'd like to help others by taking pictures of headstone in your local cemetery, be sure to register and sign up to be a volunteer. On his stone it says:

D. E. Curtis
1873 - 1952

Facebook and GenealogyWise

Social networking your family history may be the key to solving those research problems!

Today I noticed there are numerous Facebook groups related to searching for ancestors, so I decided to create one for the Curtis/s surname. Join the Curtis Genealogy Facebook group today and participate in all the networking options, including Discussion Boards, Photos, Videos, Links, and Wall postings.

My great-grandfather William Rushmer Curtis married Ella May Canfield. I volunteered to administrate the social networking site for the Canfield Surname on GenealogyWise. If you are interested in joining that group, I'd love to see you there! The group is new, so there's only two members right now.
