RESEARCHING PIONEERS OF CROOK COUNTY, WYOMING including surrounding areas in Northeast Wyoming and Western South Dakota---the BLACK HILLS.

Working on Hulett Cemetery, Hulett, WY, Moore Hill Cemetery, Hulett, WY; Alva Cemetery, Alva, WY; Tower Cemetery, Devil's Tower, WY; Rose Hill Cemetery, Spearfish, SD and Pine Slope Cemetery in Belle Fourche, SD and Green Lawn Cemetery, Rich Hill, MO.

I have the book "Pioneers of Crook County" published in 1981 for Crook Co. Wyoming and I have "Hulett Area Past and Present" published in 1985 for Hulett, Wyoming. I also have "Cowboys and Sodbusters" on the pioneers of Butte county, South Dakota. I will be glad to check these books for your research.

Except for family memorials and the memorials in the "Cowboy Brigade Project", I am willing to transfer memorials to anyone.

If something happens where I am unable to maintain my memorials, findagrave administrators have my permission to transfer all my memorials to Crook County Library #48178214 except for the memorials in the virtual cemeteries MY FAMILY and the COWBOY BRIGADE PROJECT. Transfer those memorials to my brother Alex Steiger #48246645

RE: Shankland
Hi, Carl - thanks so much for following up on this. I'll get busy and try to figure out which Springfield cemetery these stones are in; I'm in California but I still have friends and family back home that I will enlist for the search. My late parents took those pictures years ago and didn't write on the back of the photos what cemetery they were in. But for sure they're not in Rich Hill, that much I know for certain. Will be in touch when I have the info, so we can correct the FAGrave record.

Again, many thanks for all you do!

Thanks again Carl and wife for taking another pic of the Rathbuns (George). I copied it to my computer to straighten it out and then tried to repost, but it still came out, sideways. Regards, Mark

Thanks so much for posting this photo. It is an oldie for sure, and someone has cleverly framed it to hold it together. He was my 3rd great grandfather. Regards Eleanor Gibson

RE: Shankland
Well, this is interesting. All these years I thought my great-aunt and great-uncle were b. in Springfield, Illinois. I've loaded the pix of their two stones up to Wm's FAGrave entry, so you can see them there. I guess someone will need to create a separate entry for Mame? Her full name is Uldene Mayme 'Mame' (Mudd) Shankland, b. 11 Dec 1893 in Rich Hill, d. 18 July 1968, I THOUGHT in Springfield. But now I don't know where either one of them died! I'll have to dig around for that info. I'd sure like someone to confirm that they're buried there in Rich Hill. Thanks for all your help!

RE: Verna Tomlinson
I noticed on Find A Grave in the Hulett Cemetery for Verna, also has one for Millar, this is her son correct?

She lived in California at one time with her husband Leonard Tomlinson, but I don't know where he is buried.

I have Verna Shafer being married to Shelby Benson Thomas, do you happen to know anything about him?
Then she married ? Lawver, any idea who this could be?
Then she married Leonard Tomlinson.

I show Verna's chilren as Melvin Thomas and Millard Thomas
