I have been interested in genealogy since around 1998. I enjoy finding new information on family members. There seems to be be always another branch to research. I enjoy walking in the peaceful cemeteries as we seek for a long lost relative. If I have put a memorial on this website, I probably have photographed that cemetery. It is hard trying to find enough time in the day to put them all on here. So please request them and I will work on those names first. Currently I am working on Hamlin and Deuel Counties in South Dakota, but also have done a few in Brookings, Codington and Kingsbury Counties.

If I have any errors please let me know and I will correct it. For corrections, family links and transfers please use the edit button, because then it sends me a link to the page. I am willing to transfer family members upon request, if that such person is not related to any of my family.

The family names that I am researching are:
Brooks, Whitlock, Walker, Paulson, Lien, Baxter, Schaefer, Roeder, Papcke, Polzin, Nystrom, Norgaard, Simonson, Richards, Long, Burrows, Walsh and Delamater / Delemarter, Kreger, Lenning, Buchholz.

A thank you for those family members who have helped me take photos of memorials. My Sister-in-law Marceen who did all of Lakewood Cemetery in Waubay, Bergen Cemetery in Codington County, and Mazeppa Cemetery in Grant County. She also helped with Lakeview in Clear Lake. A Huge Thank you to my Sister, Lynne Shada who has helped with many of the cemeteries, You traveled with me to many states, walked cemeteries with me, photographed stones, researched at many locations with me, also you were my typist. You typed so many family stories, obituaries and such. Lynne, you are in our thoughts and hearts, we miss you greatly. Please stop and leave her a flower if you get the time.

I try to leave memorial flowers on all my family members and others for the date of birth and death. It seems to leave a personal touch to each individual. If you visit any of my relatives please leave a flower for them.

Multhauf Family
Are you in anyway related to the John & Mary Multhauf family? If you are, I have a photo of Mary, Maggie and Lizzie. They were school teachers in Vienna, SD at the same time as my grandmother.

Below info is taken from the A HISTORY OF SOUTHERN CLARK COUNTY AND SPIRIT LAKE 1976 The book is not copyrighted.

" The John Multhauf Family

John Multhauf was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 24, 1859. He came to South Dakota in 1882 and took up a homestead in Pleasant Township and lived on it a year. In 1885 he went back to Chicago and married Mary Egan, a girl from Ireland. They returned to the homestead and lived there until he moved to town. Mary died on February 2, 1906 and she was buried at Bryant, leaving five children—Margaret, Philip. Marv, Elizabeth and William.

In 1907 John Multhauf was injured in an accident and spent the rest of his life in a wheel chair, passing away April 17, 1926.

Lizzie and Maggie Multhauf were teachers in rural schools in Clark County and Vienna. Maggie taught 40 years until she passed away in February 1960. Lizzie, who was married to James Gavin in 1924, passed away in March 1962. William started farming in 1915 and in 1918 he married Aura Lizer, whose parents operated a hotel in Vienna at that time. They continued to farm the home place. They had two children, a son, Elwood, and a daughter, Kathleen (Steele), now living in Colorado. William Multhaufpassed away in 1948. The son, Elwood, continued with the farming operations until he and his mother moved to Clark in 1965.

The farm was rented to Donald Carlson for a time and is presently being farmed by Mr. and Mrs. Alan Gustafson.

The farm is still in the Multhauf family and Elwood has the deed from the Government signed in 1890 by President Grover Cleveland.

Other members of the family were Phillip who ran an oil station in Newton, Iowa: William who farmed in Clark County; Mary who took care of John for many years a0 also worked in Lunstads store on Saturday, Mary was married on June 23 to Edwin Gillis, who served I year and 3 months in World War I. When living on the farm they drove to Bryant by horse and buggy to church. Edwin Gillis passed away July 27, 1974 and he lived and worked in Ivanhoe, Minnesota for 57 years."
