Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you to those who take pictures and contribute.
I really appreciate those who can and do. It is so helpful to make sure the research we do is actually correct.

I found this site in 2008 and will be using it more often along with Trees. Perhaps we can get some of these families connected. Finding their final resting place can often be a great source of information. It's also really helpful to know if that cemetery is active and has office, email address and phone number.

I have just added my step "Dad", Neil Kelly, as he passed 05 March 2008. Strangely, by "Father" also passed just three weeks prior, isn't that some strange celestial joke? We'll see... they were 74 and 75. Just coming up on their five year anniversaries today and next month. This year makes twelve (12th) for my brother Paul.

Thank you to everyone who visits my friends and family as it brings gladness to my heart and believe it to be a form of prayer to help their souls advance. They say none of us leave this life without experiencing death, so I find it's an important social issue. Different cultures sometimes have different rites, rituals and practices.

Of course, should you find any corrections needed please send them to me with sources included so that I know I am adding correct information for all future seekers.

Thank You and Bless you all for gracefully continuing this important work. We are making history here for future generations.

Let's roll in 2013.

Lillie Bridgman
Hi Beth,

Thank you for the information about Lillie's parents. I've linked them and I moved her to St. Mary's Cemetery, which by the way, I'm writing a book about it.

What a surprise about her being at St. Mary's.

I'll talk to Paul about what he has uncovered. By the way the location from the photo, Section 1, Row 21, Area 4, Plot 3 location is impossible at St. Mary's. The location must be in Section, Row, Plot, Grave form for this area.

Could you ask RobMinteer to take down #88730952? He is someone I don't want to deal with. If you notice his posting, it copies my work from the newspapers using my format with giving me credit for the work or posting. He has copied other work too without proper credit. It is too unethical for me.

Thank you.

Al Janske

RE: Lillie Bridgman photo
Please feel free to use the photo as you wish. I will check the cemetery register to see what facts I can gather about Lillie and those buried with her

Phot for grave of Gladys M. Blote done
Hello, I attached several photos to her Find A Grave memorial. It's a very different kind of cemetery in my experience. Anyway, there is another person (I took the picture in case you wanted it or knew who it was) buried right above her. The manager of the cemetery thought it was a relative of hers. The name is Amelia G. Rajs b. 1901-d. 1984. Anything you need? Let me know. Darlene Scott Kerr Find A Grave # 47198525.

The note on the other one indicated that he didn't know where she was buried, so I think the cemetery list was probably correct.

I get most of my
obits from the Mortuary not from the Rapid City Journal and they are not user friendly! So I don't think the URL is helpful.

I am a volunteer and have no personal direct info concerning the family. I have never been to the cemetery and do not know about the markers. You may wish to ask a volunteer in the area to photograph the grave markers for you.

Good luck!
