I would appreciate any help on connecting families in my cemetery study.

I am doing a cemetery study on Bear Canon Cemetery in Sedalia, Colorado.  I have about 550 profiles started of the 1500 buried here. Many are not connected. Any help is appreciated.

Do you want me to start adding profiles of those not here yet? Where are you at on here?  Is there a certain letter I should start at?
I have completed a thru c and am working on Dakan family now. But, when I find a maiden name higher up, I usually complete that one as well. After the Connect-aThon I should be around 550 entered of the 1500 that exist. I am also working through the Douglas County Libraries website to add pictures of headstones as they have given me permission to publish them on WikiTree.  (As long as I give due credit to their website as the source.)
Hi Gurney,

I would also recommend that you edit your post and add the "Colorado" tag to it as well. That way others in the state will see this.
well, I am almost done with the Pony Express Rider's  SPACE.  And I have done the Indian Park cemetery. So glad to help.  Should I start at the bottom and work up?
I'm starting at the N's
Just got back from Louviers and Sedalia. Had lunch at Bud’s Bar where only one thing is on the menu. Place was packed. Visiting Louviers is like going back to Mayberry RFD. But it was fun. Visited Jarre Market which family has a few graves there. Also visited the old Manhart Mansion known locally as Gabriel’s Restaurant. That being said both Rhonda and Carole please start where you suggested. I am continuing with connecting those families that I already have in there and uploading headstone pictures as well. Your help is very appreciated.
Rhonda you might want to start with m’s. One of the Manhart’s was a three star general in WWII.
Carole. Please put a link to Indian Park cemetery. I would love to take a look.
Category: Indian Park Cemetery, Douglas County, Colorado  only 12 people there.  My DAR goes up to clean it up yearly.  it is set back behind the school.  Beautiful place.
You created his profile already in April - Ashton Herbert Manhart
