We arrived in Denver Thursday afternoon under cloudy overcast skies. Tim picked us up at the airport and drove us to his and Teah's house on Hooker St. Friday morning we got up and Tim, Ellen & I headed to the cemeteries to locate my relatives. Anthony Keogh, my great grandfather and his family came west from Windsor Locks, CT. in 1887. They took the train from Hartford, changing in Chicago and then getting off in Denver. There were three cemeteries that I was interested in going to. However we found out that Mount Calvary cemetery had been closed and turned into a park. The Americans were re-intured in Mt. Olvivet and the Chinese were returned to China. This was around 1910.
The Cemetery we went to was the Olinger Crown Hill Cemetery where I knew that Anthony was buried. We stopped in the office and were given a map and directions. A short time later we found the tombstone pictured above. Anthony Keogh, his Wife Margaret E. (Ryan) Keogh and 2 of their children Edward C. Keogh and Elizabeth A. Keogh. We also found Edward's wife Ellen Ida,( I do not have her surname) and a baby that died at birth.
Cemetery research is always good when you find everyone you are looking for. I have spent lots of time wandering around and not finding anyone. So we said hello to all.
