Peaceful Valley is located west of Boulder, Colorado, in the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest \ Boulder Ranger District.
*Amanda's sister Mercy Ann Darling married her first husband Abner Webb in 1856.
**In the 1910 U.S. Census, George and Amanda were living on a farm on a country road with no name in the Valmont precinct of Boulder County. By 1920 they had moved to a rented house in Niwot. Since I don't know when they left the farm it's not clear where "home" was on that day 97 years ago.
