"I have it from a good source, his daughter, that Joseph F. Durand
commited suicide. He was a sporting goods store owner in Denver. I just confirmed last night that his wife Frances' maiden name was Swett. Her mother's (Emma May LaBrie) first husband was named Howard Swett. They were divorced when Frances was 3 years old. Emma May later married Jack Probert. Frances was never adopted by Jack, even though her name is somtimes listed as Probert."

Another email from John, 10 Jul 2001, includes a newspaper article from a CO newspaper:

"The flies were made by the 12-year-old daughter of Joseph F. Durand, administrative officer of the Office of Defense Transportation in Denver - and by the way he is a brother-in-law of Bert Cruse. But the skill of this young girl in making good trout flies is admired by fishermen throughout the state.
...
I still will be of the belief that Mr. Durand's young daughter can tie flies better now than I can ever hope to accomplish..."

This refers to dau JoAnn (qv).

"My mother, JoAnn Durand, had an interesting childhood. When she was in high school she had a fly tying business. I'm sure it was set up by her father who owned a sporting goods store in Denver. She hired women that worked in her in the basement while she was at school, piano or dance lessons, to tie her name branded flys- then she came home and designed and tied some more. The company was called "Durand Sure Strike Fllies". She had customers from all over the NA
contenent. She was featured in a full color (3-5 pages) Saturday Evening Post article trying out her flies in Colorado rivers. Additionaly, Ripley's Belive It Or Not featured her as "Kid Capitalist", the youngest female buisness owner or something like that. When she left for Colorado State the business shut down.

She married John Arthur Nelson Sr, in Colorado - A Forester, who's father was also a forester. We lived all over the South-East. Their Children:

John A. Nelson Jr. (Me!) b 01 Jun 1952 in Denver - Computer Systems Analyst
James Gregory Nelson - b Louisanna - Outside Sales Person
Nancy Nelson - b Arkansas - Expert Dog Groomer"

John's email of 10 Jul 2001 contains a newspaper article about his mother:

" 'Youngest Manufacturer' Has Dodge City Link

When a recent issue of the Saturday Evening Post featured an article about the youngest manufacturer in the United States, Jo Ann Durand, 14, of Denver, who makes Sure Strike Flies for trout fishermen, there were few in Dodge City who knew the girl is a granddaughter of Mary LaBrie, who attended schools in Dodge City 40 years ago and was a student at the old Soule college.

The grandmother was a relative of the Strange family in Dodge City, of whom Ben and Henry Strange are members still living here. During a visit to Colorado last year Mr. and Mrs. Ben Strange were told of the business their distant cousin, then 13 years old, had established in the manufacture of trout lures that were much in demand.
...

Her father, Joseph F. Durand of Denver, is quite a fisherman and he likes to tie his own trout flies. As a small girl his daughter began helping him, and soon was turning out a professional job ..."

     Elizabeth Durand (Du1204) I am making a leap here that Elizabeth D married to Albert F Cruse is Elizabeth Durand because her gravestone photo appears in John Nelson's collection along with Joseph Durand's.

Note added 16 Nov 2001 (Alvy Ray Smith III): On a recent visit to the Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, I found the Probert tombstone next to the Cruse tombstone. The Proberts adopted the wife, Frances Leon Swett, of Joseph Franklin Durand, Elizabeth's brother. See Frances Leon Swett for further information. Here is the transcription of the Cruse tombstone:

Block 34, Fairmount Cemetery, Denver:

"CRUSE
Albert F. Eliabeth D.
1899-1984 1902-1955"

On reverse of this stone:

"CRUSE
Esther H.
1900-1983"

who, judging by the name and dates, is probably Albert Cruse's sister. Elizabeth was born at Denver, Denver, Colorado, USA, in 1902. I am guessing that Elizabeth D is Elizabeth Durand because of proximity to other Durands, apparently in Fairmount Cemetery, Denver, in the email which contains the data..2,3,4 She married Albert F "Bert" Cruse.2,5,3 Elizabeth died in 1955 at Denver, Denver, Colorado, USA. D 1954 according to Darline (Durand) Wilson.2,3,4 Her body was interred at Denver, Denver, Colorado, USA, at Fairmount Cemetery.2,3

"45. Peter RUTAN Jr was born about 1720. Died about 1754 in of New Jersey.

SOURCES: (Meacham, 1873 p?); New Jersey Wills

He married Sarah about 1741 in of New Jersey. Sarah was born about 1721. Died in of New Jersey."

Morris Co, NJ Freeholders, 63:

Morris Twp:

"Daniel Rattan
Peter Rattan"

There is a good chance that Sarah is Sarah Thompson, dau of John Thompson (cf First Settlers 57, 382, 414). Estimates for her dates are 1720-1800 (based on 1712-1803 for her older brother Thomas and c1729-1794 for her younger sister Elizabeth). We know she married Mr Rutan as her second husband (and that he had a son Peter of Albany), and that her other two husbands were both of Long Hill, near where our RUTANS of New Providence area lived. Peter Rutan Jr's dates are c1720-c1754, which means Sarah would have had time to marry a third time, as we know she did. However, the son Peter of Albany (sounds like he was already grown) doesn't fit this picture.

NO! The theory above doesn't work. The will of Abraham Sickle (see text for ELIZABETH //, wife of PETER RUTAN) is dated and proved in 1759, so his wife Sarah Thompson could not have married Peter Rutan Jr in 1741, especially since Peter died in 1754!
