Henry Brunton from PA (1858-1928)

I am seeking information on my great-great grandfather Henry Brunton, born in Pennsylvania in 1858. According to my grandmother Loretta (Daehn) Tomky, Henry Brunton was Pennsylvania Dutch. He married Isabel Todd and at one time lived in the gold mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado. He was the town blacksmith and built the first Cripple Creek firewagon. He later moved to Rocky Ford, Colorado, and became one of the first farmers in the region. Henry Brunton died in 1928, and he and Isabel are buried in the Rocky Ford Cemetary. I'd appreciate any information relating to this line. Thank you.
