Spaulding family - Fountain, SD
Valerie, I noticed you manage the Spaulding grave memorial in the Fountain Cemetery. I wondered if perhaps this Spaulding is also related -- #50424398 ?

Initially his gravestone was transcribed wrong, so it was spelled Spauldine, rather than Spaulding.

If you are related, do you wish to have this memorial transferred so you can link the child to his relatives?

Fountain Cemetery, SD
Hello Valerie,

I'm contacting you as one of those managing a memorial for a Fountain Cemetery grave.

I live 5 miles from Fountain Cemetery, which I have volunteered to care for as part of our local Brookings County Genealogical Society project.

I'm contacting those managing graves right now so as to inquire if they have any special needs for photos ect as spring approaches... I will be heading out to the cemetery to mow, repair animal damage and fence repairs, etc at the almost abandoned cemetery. Its off the beaten path, that requires some hardy driving over rutted and washed out trails. But each spring I try to make it to the cemetery.

This spring, its my goal to try to identify more of the cemetery graves & to get SOME Form of marker on a percentage of those currently unmarked.

Larry Cool has provided me a Google Document that lists the entire list of those inturned at the cemetery. I hope to get that up soon.

Anyhow, if you have relatives there that you would like to have graves given flowers to, please let me know. I'm looking to landscape a bit once we get the debris cleared & stones back upright, etc.
A local sculptor has volunteered to make a new steel sign to replace the broken wooden one. So hopefully the cemetery will see "new life".

Sincerely Anisah D

Thank you!
Thank you for photographing and posting the head stone of my Great Grandmother Ambjor Hagen in the Bethesda Cemetery at Beresford, South Daakota. I never thought I would ever have the chance to see it. What a treasure it is to have in my family records.

Rev.Monteville Clingman Aleridge #93070879 was the husband of Rachel Elizabeth Cooper #66796732. They had about 9 living children. He was under his car,working on it and it fell on him and killed him. His Grandson told me that. He also told me his grandfather changed the spelling from Aldridge to Aleridge. All the info is private except his wife,she was my Gr Aunt.

I have prettier photos of the footstones taken in 1990. Major Woodard and Anna Eliza Woodard, I could send them to your email or copy them if you are on as I say you may copy them to post. These dark dirty stones are due to being lower than the sod level which we had to remove the sod to find them!! Also the last too wet years probably has mold on them???

Cannot seem to sign into Find a grave even tho they verified my password!!
