Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born at Faulkton and raised in the village of Wecota, both in Faulk County, SD. I have lived in Minneapolis,MN for some time. My parents still are in Wecota and when I visit them I check for requests in that area.

I am particularly interested in two small abandoned territorial-era cemeteries there; the Myron Congregational and Sod Church (a/k/a Myron Baptist)cemeteries.

The Millard cemetery is another one that dates from pioneer days that I have surveyed and added, and continue to work on with my research buddy Dennise Harmon.

Anyone has permission to copy my photographs only for non-commercial purposes, with attribution, in a manner and context that is not offensive. This permission does NOT include adding my photos to other record entries or locations. Please ask first.

One of my pet peeves is when I provide updates and the creator of the Find A Grave memorial turns over the management to me without adding the info or me asking to manage it. I am finally realizing I need to save the info I send- most times in the past I have not.

Have added the info you forwarded - thank you for sharing.

If Mr. Ellis is a relative, please forward a transfer request (I am not related). I had found him listed in old newspaper and provided info and he was transferred to my care.

Mary & Elmer Sturdevant
I think the "original" memorials are in the wrong cemetery. I think they should be in McCook County Immanuel Lutheran Church.

However, I have deleted both of my Sturdevant memorials.

Best wishes,
High Plains :)

RE: Law
Hi Kent,
It is possible, I believe that I photographed all the visible headstones in the cemetery but it's also possible that it could have been missed. I looked through all of my photos and on a couple of other websites that I know and didn't see their names. I've noted the names/cemetery and will have a look again the next time I'm in that area (I live about 4 hours from the location). Thanks for doing all that you are doing!

Regarding Ole and Sarah Beim, yes, the photo of their names and dates were on the back of the stone. I'm happy I could help.
