IN THE HIGH COUNTRY
Settlers On The Land At Golden Gate Canyon State Park
by Malcolm G. Stevenson, 2005
Compiled by Opal Longino
for Foothills Genealogical Society, Inc., 2006
 
Mr. Stevenson, park historian and author of IN THE HIGH COUNTRY, has been a technical writer who was very interested in history. His research, oral history interviews, collection of photos, gathering of the homestead papers from the National Archives and enthusiasm over the last ten years has produced a very interesting book. It is about the hardships and successes of the original sixty one families who settled the Golden Gate Canyon State Park area. This collaborative effort of many volunteers of the park will allow 100% of the proceeds from sale of the book to benefit the trails and programs of the park. The book is available at the visitors center in the Park.
 
Starting in 1859 the early settlers included individuals and families with various reasons for homesteading.  Some of the 61 settlers were Charles D. Hicks, a civil war soldier who fought with Chinvington, an African American homesteader by the name of Samuel Parker, an Englishman, Henry Short, a Dane, Jacob Bruerson/Brotherson, the Green family from Las Animas CO, Sarah Jane Nichols, a civil war widow, Hugh C. McCammon from TN who became a territorial legislator, the Welsh Belchers and many more very interesting folks.
 
This is true Colorado history with very interesting genealogy through out its pages.
