Elsie Cartwright born bet 1850 and 1880 would never tell me, or her granddaughter, Rita Mae Dotts, her age or date of birth.Elsie married Clarence Oliver Dotts, the grandson of Thomas Benton Dotts, on 8 Jun 1898 in Fort Collins CO.Elsie and Clarence Oliver Dotts hadfive children:Marvel (died in his youth),Clair Clarence (born 1900), Rita (NMI) (who married Earl Nichols), Avis(NMI) , and Anita Jean.I need infomation on Avis and Anita Jean, dates, names of spouses, children, etc.Also info on the whereabouts and names of spouses and families of Norma Lee Nichols and Barbara Ann Nichols, children of Earl Nichols and Rita Dotts .Also dates of birth and death and place of death for Elsie Cartwright -- or where I should start to look.
Clarence Oliver Dotts died 22 Jun 1936, in Delta CO, I think.Elsie, his widow, married a "Bill" Williams, perhaps about 1950. He may have died circa 1965.He and Elsie were living at the time in either Grand Junction or Delta Colorado.Need info on Bill Williams as well.I do know that Bill was a "pioneer" of sorts in western Colorado -- perhaps Gunnison County -- and worked for some of the early railroads there, perhaps as an engineer. He talked much about the Denver and Rio Grand, the Silverton, and other early lines in Colorado.
