"Colorado Resident Seeks Relatives In Monroe County---'I am hunting for a relative with whom I may correspond,' Mrs. Joyce B. Benson, 3635 Terry Ridge Road, Ft. Collins, CO 80521, said in a letter to The Observer today.
The remainder of the letter follows:
'I hope one of your readers might be that relative. In tracing back my family tree, I find many roots from both my father and mother are dug deep in Monroe County.
'If there are any descendants of Serepta or David Baker, Thomas Barnett, Susannah and William Davis, Mary and William Hawkins or Mary and Jesse Ward, I would most welcome correspondence. I am enclosing a family tree chart as there are so many names and it does get involved.
'Surely there is someone related who stayed home, instead of "headin' west." I am hoping there will be one reader with a "family feeling" who will answer my plea.
'I will be waiting anxiously to hear from someone.'
