Bio and Links
I was raised near Howard, Miner Co, SD. The last few years I have been spending a lot of time doing genealogy work. It has evolved beyond working with genealogy groups into photographing gravestones and building a database of burials, particularly in Codington and Miner counties and surrounding cemeteries in South Dakota. I am a stickler for accuracy, so don't be surprised if I suggest changes for cemeteries in the area I am familiar with. However, I also make my share of mistakes, so don't be afraid to point them out to me too. The next worse thing to not having info on burials is to have misleading or incorrect info.

RE: Levi Sheckler relatives
Yes and I did, do you know what family was in Harding county, I found the census as far as it went I found Ancestry Tree that has parents, don't know if they are correct of course, found the VA Home place in CA he was. Do you find him in the 1910 census somewhere I missed.

I sure can't
find him in the 1910 census anywhere in SD, Harding county had just been formed in 1909 but the census covered that area, there are some Lei but not him.

RE: Levi Sheckler
I don't know why someone had the wrong date of birth for him, I don't know if the man who took the picture of it knows or not.

RE: Helga Torvanger
Bill, I will make the changes you requested. I prefer the edit process and I don't always get emails saying I have a comment left for me and I more frequently check my edits. It is more timely.

My daughter and I visited the cemetery while on Bainbridge Island for my nephew's wedding. The data I found for parents name was from death information found on the Washington State Archives list when I returned home to and uploaded the pictures. Thus it is entirely possible it is not correct. I just try to add information as best I can when I can.

The vast majority of edit's can be done on the Edit tab - including maiden name additions/change, parent links, DOB and DOD information, marker transcription additions/changes, etc.
