How nice to hear from you.I had about given up that anyone would ever see that message.I had posted it so long ago!
Are you interested in family history, genealogy and all that or were you just surfing the web.I would dearly love to fill in some gaps and holes in my records.
Yes, Roy and Lucille were my parents.I even have you in my data base - probably from a letter to my folks written by your mother. Dad died, aged 99, in 1996 - both still living at home at the time.Mom died Jan. 1999, aged 91.
I haven't been to Ft. Collins.My folks met your Dad, Mom and Grandfather back in the 70's or 80's at a family reunion, of which I have some pictures.I don't remember your folks being at Mom & Dad's 50th anniversary. In fact I have a picture of my Mom & Dad standing in front of a house with probably your g-g-grandfather, Adam, and a woman (couldn't be his wife Mary) taken about 1930 when they stopped on their way to the Chicago World's Fair.I have another big picture that was probably his son Adam that is very 1930-40ish - informal studio shot in a nice suit - thin, white hair & nice moustache.
I've pieced your family together from letters from various relatives, pictures and also things on the web.Have also tried on the web with Scottish records and have things pushed back to a George Michie & Christian Bennet in the middle-late 1700's.
Obviously I've taken over the family history project (never ending) from my mother.
I know your Dad was on the county commission during the Johnson Canyon flood.The old farm has been sold, keeping the house, and you're now farming in Rifle.Also, your sister, Carol, works/worked at Colorado State.And that you have (at least) two children: Michelle and Adam.
I'm in Manhattan, Kansas, on faculty at KSU.I'm an anthropologist but now am Director of Study Abroad in International Programs.
