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 are now living in Faulkton and when I visit them I check for requests in that area.

I am particularly pleased to have added to this database 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 Faulk Co. pioneer days that I have surveyed and added, 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 includes adding my photos to other record entries or locations. But please ask first.
Especially if you are a relative I do not yet know!


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.


To get anything added to a page, please use the EDIT tab on the upper right corner and then the top line that says "suggest . ." Also use this method to contact me regarding incorrect information, adding additional information, linking married couples and their children etc. The linking tool is built into the edit tab now, so please use it.

I'm a photo rescuer; I often find old photos- and the occasional Bible- at thrift stores for a dollar or two with information written on the back of them. I try to find a family researcher to give the photo to and I will look for their Findagrave site to add the picture there.

RE: transfer
Perhaps the Maxine White you would know is one that lives in Faulkton. She was a county nurse I think. Never met her but have heard of her.

RE: Wm Grant Rouse
Hi Kent,

Thank you for thinking about our family and the photo's. But the Rouse's married into my Forrest family and I have nothing on their descendants.

I could not find a McConahay family in my database either.
