I am preparing to do a process of elimination in a effort to determine my Grandfathers parents.  It may be a long project.  But with the information I know I will be searching the Census records for Trinidad, Las Animas, Colorado and surrounding areas.  Based on what is known I hope to narrow down families that will be potential canidatesfor john's parents by a process of elimination.  Other than going through the  state records which will cost  fair amount as I have to get my fathers birth certificate then go to where records for the Orphanage are maintained to prove my lineage.  Living on disability does not allow for this route at this time in my budget.

Please if you have an  female Anderson from this area that has remmarried from 1903  to 1910 I would like to know.

Any help or ideas will be appreciated.

Sorry, can't help with specific Anderson's from Southern Colorado. I'm working on Anderson's who lived in Northern Colorado in Larimer and Jackson Counties primarily. Best of luck if you need any help or suggestion let me know. Also, welcome to WikiTree...

Hi Dwan,

Southern Colorado is where my branch appears.  From there it went to Northeastern Colorado and then spread west from there.  There are two Andersons somewhere that may be my Grandfathers family.  They came to farmin Holoke, Colorado after my grandfather died.  They offered my grandmother to take the three youngest boys to help her out.  She told them no and to leave her land.  Only one possible name was mentioned  and it Was Arthur.  Also Johns mom came to visit from time to time.  My aunts recall calling her Grandma Whitsteen.
