Hello Andrea, thank you for the work you have done here. I am still learning how it all works.
I recieved an e-mail with this message from you..."fyi this is a duplicate of 93945255
if you would like since i'm assuming you are family I'll transfer mine to you and you can do what you wish"
Yes he was my Grandfather and it would be fine to transfer your info if you think that is the best thing to do?
Thanks again , Miles Flansburg

I help my husband with teaching history classes out here in the Black Hills. I also love genealogy. One class he teaches is on the history of Fort Meade in Sturgis, SD. Recently while conducting research at the Old Fort Meade Cemetery in Sturgis, South Dakota, I noticed several people have listed family members or friends at the cemetery who passed after 1943. The Fort Meade Cemetery has been a closed cemetery since 1943. No internments can take place nor have taken place since Black Hills National Cemetery opened with the first burials in 1948.

Be sure to check with the “Black Hills National Cemetery” (a few miles away from Fort Meade Cemetery) and your relative or friend may be buried there or possibly at one of the other cemeteries in Sturgis: Bear Butte Cemetery or St. Aloysius Cemetery.

Another possibility is they could be buried in the similarly named “Fort Meade Post Cemetery” located in Maryland

Good Luck in your searches.

Sgt William Bush
The memorial number is 94151980, I believe this is a distant relative and would like you to add his birth date and death date. He was born March 9, 1841 in Hanover, Germany and died May 29, 1915. His wife was Louise Dora Benn - I believe she is Louisa D. Bush in findagrave and they had the following children: Guy born Dec of 1884, John born Oct of 1886, Martha Evelyn born Oct of 1888, Julius born Nov of 1889, and William Jr born June of 1892 - those births are from the 1900 Census. Per that census they also had another child but it didn't survive. Thank you so much.
