Acknowledgements: Arapahoe County Marriages

The Columbine Genealogical and Historical Society extends a big “Thank you!” to the staff in the, Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder’s office, and staff for their courtesy and cooperation while we pursued this project. Without local access to records, this project would have been considerably more difficult to accomplish.

The Society applauds Jean Wilson, Special Projects Coordinator, for her outstanding leadership regarding the transcription, computerization, and publication of Arapahoe County, Colorado, Marriages: 1940—1959, in two volumes. Members of the Committee who assisted with the design and development of this publication are listed below:

John Cook Mary Lou King John Mossman
Donald R. Elliott Spence Kline Judith Phelps
Ray Harrell Joyce Lohse Tom Shupert
Bob Huegel Joan McGrane Connie Strandberg


The Society also extends a heartfelt thanks to all the volunteer Columbine Genealogical and Historical Society members who met the challenge to help make this publication possible. Without their faith, dedication, and hard work extracting records, entering data into the computer, and proofreading copy, these two volumes of 27,706 names would not have been a reality. Volunteers who contributed their time and talents are listed below:

Gloria Bauer Shirley Jenkins Mary Lou Scott
Paula Davis Mary Lou King C. R. Dick Spielman
Donald R. Elliott Sue McMullin Connie Strandberg
Rose Gaffney Judity Phelps Edith Trosper
Agnes Harlan Joan Richmond Janice Wilson
Bob Hunt Claire Rogers Larry Wilson


A special thanks goes to Don Elliott, President of the Society, for his support, patience, and talent. He merged individual computer files, formatted this information in its final presentation form, and generated the surname index. The Society also thanks Judith Phelps, Special Projects Committee Member, who prepared the front matter for this compilation.
