Jeannie,
Great pictures! I believe I have one showing their two sons, Marshall H. and George W. in one of my family pictures. My gr-grandmother Eugenia Arnold was apparently Marshalls first wife. They married in Pennington County South Dakota. After about 6 years or so he went to Boulder to find work and according to family history was to send for them. They say he died as they supposably never heard from him again. He does show up on the 1910 census having remarried and having a daughter.

Coons Family History

I'd like to know more about this family. I have started a family tree on Ancestry.com, something about them seems "familiar" from a genealogist's standpoint. A number of my ancestors resided in the same towns they did around the same time. Thank you
