*Obit stated she taught in Spink Co., but I believe it was in Hand Co., as they lived and farmed in Burdette Twp., Hand Co., all their married lives. "Burdette-addressed mail" was at one time given a "postal address" of "Tulare, SD", and delivered out of the Tulare, Spink Co. post office. Later, those same residents were given a "postal address" of "St. Lawrence, SD" and delivered from the St. Lawrence, Hand Co. post office. --csr
