Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a local historian in Rapid City SD, I specialize in finding where people are buried, I have many readings of cemeteries in Western South Dakota I hope post them on this site.
I have a vast number of cemetery readings and obituaries that I am putting on site, I also am a volunteer to look up obits for people, please contact me if you need help in the Rapid City area.
I don't go too far to do pictures, I don't go to Fall River County to do pictures too far away, some places in Pennington are too far away.
I consider my self a scribe of the cemeteries, they are waiting for family , friends or who ever knows about the person and can do a bio to take edit control of them from me.
Don't put obits up where pictures should be, ask me to transfer so you can do the memorial the right way, only so many pictures can go up and using an obit that way is wrong!
Please, please just send your number on edit to ask for transfer that is the only way I want to do it, it so much easier that way.
If anyone has memorials in South Dakota they can no longer manage, please consider transferring them to me, I would be glad to have them.
My husband died in Sept and I am finally getting back to work on memorials and anything else that I can do.

RE: Catherine Newcome
Ok, but who has a cemetery map? I would love to have a copy!

RE: Please send
Re: Catherine Newcomer - I can't send it on an edit since it is not one of your memorials.

RE: Please send
It didn't help that I left the "r" off of her name! Check memorial #58307454. Thank you.

My curiosity got the better of me. What does this flower mean: W 1/2 Sec 4-27
- Ellen Bishop?

Is this where she is buried? Do you have a map for this cemetery? That would be extremely helpful! Why is this info in a flower?!

I appreciate your efforts to add the obit verbage. However, I was part of writing the family obit and will be using what we have written.

Hi Ellen,
Ralph is my brother, I'm in Custer attending his funeral, there is no burial. Would you be so kind as to transfer his memorial.

Shirley Bracewell Miller. FAG @ 165532080
Are you related to her? Are you aware that she was married twice. First marriage occurred on 1 Apr. 1943 in Palm Beach County, Florida to a man she met at the Ellsworth Air Force base. He was Wendell Deering Neeley. Approx 6 weeks later, his plane was shot down on 11 June 1943 while on a mission to Wilhelmshaven, Germany. His body was not recovered. He has two Find A Grave memorials, # 11430906 and # 56302220. Wendel was my mother's cousin. Shirley's marriage record to Roland Lee Miller was found in Salt Lake County Utah. On that record she listed her name: Shirley Neeley Bracewell. Thank you for making the memorial for her. I had been searching for her for many years.
