I see that Lori has sent you some information already... I am the Phillip Auth she refered to in her post.Agnes Auth was my great Aunt, I remember visiting here in California when I was a child.She was a widow living with here sister Rose Auth Howard at that time.Acording to my notes, Howard Lander died 23 Apr 1967 in Torrance, California.Agnes died 16 Sept 1971.They had no children.
Her sister had 7 children and my files are not current but I think one or two daughters may still be living, I can double check with my father. If you would like to track down these nieces of Howard Lander, let me know.
PS... How long have you been in Cripple Creek... I lived in Denver, Boulder and Westminster from 1988 to 1998 when I moved to Austin, Texas where I live now!
