Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy and cemeteries! I've been visiting cemeteries since I was a young girl and am intrigued by the history behind every stone. Two of my ancestors were actual caretakers of cemeteries. I have a vast collection of genealogical data that I'm constantly updating. Surnames I am searching are Bessire, Berryman, Boley, Bourne, Cahoon, Durfee, Durnbaugh, Horne, Mecham, Menser, Rhodes, and Woodhouse.

Hattie Bessire 1857-1941
Found the wonderful pic. How are you related? Her sister, Iva, married Jerome Henley, who is part of my tree. Do you have info on them? Thanks for the work you do.

Emma Bohning / Medicine Hill Cemetery
Hi -
I didn't see a headstone for Emma Bohning at the Medicine Hill Cemetery, but I haven't been through the entire cemetery. I stopped in there to get a requested photo one time, and transcribed a few other headstones. If you are related to the Bohning family, I would be happy to transfer their listings to you.

Re: Medicine Hill Cemetery
John Bohning, for which you have posted a memorial in the Medcine Hill Cemetery, Hughes Co., South Dakota, has a wife named Emma Thressie Bessire Bohning. Did you find her there by chance? It is not posted. Born 1877. Died 1939.

Names in Stone
RE: Bessire stones in Mount Eaton Lutheran Cemetery

We went to the cemetery, but unfortunately could not locate any of the stones that you were interested in. We did take more photos and I have posted them.
I am sorry, but there are so many missing and in poor shape, it is very hard to read most of the ones that are still standing.
