Bio and Links
Born and raised in Black Hills of South Dakota, currently performing inventory of Whitewood Cemetery, a personal project to preserve local history.

Please advise me by e-mail if you find an error or have additional information regarding my listings. I am always interested in new information and sincerely regret any errors I may have made.

My occupation is indexing historic newspapers for the City of Deadwood, S.D., in which the settlement of most of Lawrence County is chronicled. This allows me access to obituaries and stories associated with the death of those buried at Whitewood. I am a member of the Whitewood Cemetery Assoc., and have implemented plat book records into this database.

Entries of the Whitewood Cemetery are being made in chronological order. I am beginning with family members originally buried at the Crook City Cemetery and moved to Whitewood for various reasons when it was established as a railroad town in 1888, primarily the family's move to Whitewood from Crook City.

My intention is to enter burials up to 50 prior to the present date. I preserve the right for family members to make the choice of more recent burials being added. I do invite inquiries for more recent burials to my e-mail address.

Hi T. Fox,

May Elizabeth's birth ate is 19 Feb 1913. She is the sister to my father-in-law. I found her birth record on the SD Health Department website for birth records over 100 years.

Margaret Dunn
hello, thank you for doing what you're doing. Margaret Dunn buried in Whitewood is my great-grandmother. My father and his family have always wondered if her and Walter her husband were buried here. I was wondering if you would know where to find this grave if we were to make a trip down to Whitewood. Thank you very much.

Lester Derby
Memorial Number: 42852729

This memorial is incorrect. Lester Samuel Derby was the husband of Marie Antoinette Paklin. Marie was my cousin. Lester Samuel Derby was born in Nebraska.

The Lester Derby and Mary referred to in the Charles Klufa obituary resided in Minnesota. That Lester Derby was born December 16, 1905, in Minnesota and died April 1975.

I see that his record was transferred to you and I am wondering if you are related? Because I have a pretty postcard addressed to him in 1911, shortly after he got married apparently. I would like to mail it to a family member. I found it in a little antique shop in Gig Harbor, Washington. There is no charge. I just wanted to do something nice. I am Alice V. Nelson of Herron Island, Washington and my email address is I am also a findagrave member and am on Someone once did this for me and I want to pay it forward. Best wishes.
