A little late in posting. :-). I went to the Denver Public Library in October of 2010. As hoped, I found a published genealogical history of the Rarick Family (by Dr Alden J. Rarick, 1979). No problems finding the volume. The Denver Library staff was extremely helpful.
Although chock full of information, the book had little I had not already discovered with two exceptions 1) a transcription of the will of Conrad Rarick, and 2) reference to an article in the Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey.
The library also had the New Jersey genealogy magazine. It had a great listing of graves and inscriptions from the grave yard where Conrad was buried! What find!
A successful trip and, gain, the Denver Public Library staff is great!
