    When I signed up for the free book it sent me here. How do I download? I didn’t find anywhere to click.

    • Hi Betherny1960. I’m not sure which free book you mean. Please shoot me an email. jdrhawkins@gmail.com

        The link to the Evergreen Cemtery in Leadville no longer works. We seek info on a Confederate Solider; Charles Milburn – might there be any info available on his date of death, next of kin? Thinking he and James R. Milburn were brothers? Thank you. Michelle

      • Hi Michelle. Thank you for your comment. This link might help: https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/57260/evergreen-cemetery

        Thank you. I saw Charles W. Milburn listed being buried at the cemetery but he hasn’t a headstone so doesnt appear at this link. So I was curious to know how his burial there is known. Charles and his brother James R. Milburn were Surveyors for Lake County CO. Both from State of Maryland. Michelle

      • I’m not sure either. You might try contacting the city of Leadville and see if they can lead you in the right direction.

        I found an old newspaper reference to Decoration Day, wherein they cited who was buried & in which location within Evergreen. And in that article, among others, I read the names of both Charles W. Milburn, and his brother James R. Milburn buried there as Confederate Soldiers. Too, in another online newspaper article I found Charles’ date of death in a VERY short notice – his wife was 5 months pregnant when he died, their only child! Sad. So am all set. Thank you though! Michelle

      • Interesting! Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful.
