CORMACKs in Elizabeth, CO from 1893-1929

Surnames: CORMACK, WATERS
I'm researching my grandmother's family-perhaps this post will have some names familiar to another Elbert county researcher. The CORMACKs came from Wick, Caithness, Scotland to Denver in 1888-89, then to Elizabeth about 1893. Francis CORMACK was a watchmaker. I have a copy of an obituary from the Elbert County Banner from 17 February 1905 detailing his and his daughter Janet's deaths. Dora, the widow, left with the children to Butte, Montana. She died there in about 1910. The grown children went to Colorado, Idaho, and Colorado. Dora's sister Mary WATERS probably stayed in Elizabeth. She died in 1929 and is buried in Elizabeth in the same plot as Francis and Janet. I have a photograph of the tombstone on the Website linked below.. A family listing is at the end of this message.
