This article announces the wedding of Kenneth Allen Kolster of Roseville and Cindy E. Lucas of Sacramento. Cindy's parents are listed as Mr. and Mrs. Earl L. Lucas of Sacramento, having moved from Modesto 5 years previously. Deneece and Susan Lucas are mentioned as Cindy's sisters. The wedding took place on the wedding anniversary of the bride's parents.

Joseph Coffman Byers and Mary Catherine Lynn

The following post is located at this link:

GDKskills Mon, 19 Jan 1998 13:32
I'm seeking information on my wife's ggg-grandmother, Hannah SUVER b. abt 1814-1828. Born and reared in OH. Married Morgan LYNN. They had a daughter, Mary Catherine LYNN who married Joseph Coffman BYERS. (His parents were John BYERS and Priscella PENDLETON, daughter of _______ PENDLETON, who is said to have served under Geo. Washington in the Revolutionary War.) In turn, Joseph and Mary Catheine had a daughter, Sallie Alice BYERS, b. 25 July 1864 near Kalamazoo MI. Hannah had several siblings, one of which was Joseph W. SUVER. He went on the California Gold Rush in 1848-49. Soon after, he went to OR where he had a family, lived part of the time near Corvallis OR (there is a town named Suver near Corvallis). In 1861, he still had relatives in OH to whom he wrote. The SUVER family is thought to be of Dutch descent. Interested in hearing from anyone researching these surnames.

The post was made by Gary D. Kline. I really wish we had got together while he was still alive. He passed away in 2002. I must try to get ahold of his wife, or children, again.

Gary provides names for the parents of Joseph and Mary in this post.

Gordon Herring on

Newpapers clipping images from memorial for Gordon Herring.

The name of Gordon's wife is listed as Lee Herring. Hageman's morturary in Arvada, Colorado should also have more information.

I found the following using Google maps:

Hageman's Mortuary Transfer
5385 Newland Street, Arvada, CO 80002-3934
(303) 422-4768‎

I found the following at a Jefferson, County website:

Clear Creek Valley Baptist Church
Address: 10555 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge, 80033

The name is descriptive of the location. The church was originally Clear Creek Valley Church organized in 1890. In 1892 the name was changed to Alathe Church. In 1905 the faltering congregation became a mission of Galilee Baptist, Denver, and was named Fruitdale Baptist, adopting the name of the neighborhood. In 1990 the centennial observance research led to the name change back to Clear Creek Valley Baptist Church. This is a conservative Baptist denomination and is the site of the Rocky Mountain Conservative Baptist Association headquarters.

I think the 6730 Indiana is Gordon's home address.
