River Portal (East Portal), Colorado

I'm Irish & I'm a Mason...and I have a story to tell.

Sit By The River - Share My Journey

These entries document the stories of the men, women and children who lived at River Portal, Montrose County, Colorado while working on the Gunnison Diversion Tunnel - a historic pioneering project that celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2009.

Please read from the first entry forwards as I tend to have my own writing style that's more like reading a book than an entry that can be read individually. Reading the posts separate from each other doesn't really convey the story properly. :)

Household # 3 - Henry O. Warren

Household # 3 on the River Portal 1910 Census lists the family of Henry O. Warren.  Henry was born in Wisconsin, son of John Warren.  His wife was likely Cora Earl who lived very close in 1880 - shortly before the couple married.  They had two children - Kevin and Myrtle.  Kenneth apparently died sometime between 1900 and 1910.  Myrtle went on to marry an unknown Speckman but was widowed soon after - probably within the first year.  After 1910 I don't know what happened to Myrtle.  I haven't yet found Henry and Cora on the 1930 census.
