Bio Photo We are heading back to the far North. I will most likely be offline for most of the time gone. Will try to check on edits if I can, otherwise until we get back the other things will have to be put on hold for now.

Thank you to all who have visited my family. Your memorial flowers and tokens have touched my heart. I will try to visit your family as much as can find the time to do so.

Purple for Payton

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 Dellamater / 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.

I see your post on Abigail's findagrave and wanted to touch bases with you in regards to Abigail's Law Family.
I am also a Law genealogy researcher for our Law Family thru Abigail's father Ivory Orlan Law. Ivory Orlan Law's father Washington McKendree Law is my 2nd great grandfather. I would love to correspond with you and share what I have for our Law family.

Thank you a million times over for taking this picture for me. She was the one great aunt that I could not find. She passed away and was living in South Dakota, but I didn't think earlier to look in Minnesota. This is a family treasure for us, and so greatly appreciated. David Bjorkman

Thank you very much for taking the time to get the pic of the McCabe headstone for me. It will be a welcome addition to the family tree project for my wife's family. I really appreciate it.
