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.

Wendy (Deverman) Freauff
June Ann Banks & Thank You...

Thank you so much for transferring my Mother's memorial to my care, I am excited to update it a bit! (No corrections were necessary; I thank you for the simple memorial you created and am grateful you did not post her obituary).

Also, thank you for your service! I am grateful for the many people like you who choose to spend some of their free time locating burial records and adding memorials.

Best wishes,

Wendy :-)

Iversons Ladner, South Dakota
I need to talk with you about three Iversons who are buried in Ladner Cemetery, Harding County, SD. The memorials were created by Ron Penn (now owned by Deb Gunderson). There are grave marker photos he took that are on the memorials. This Iverson family farmed near Ladner for many years (census records confirm this). I believe these are correct. You have memorials for them in a cemetery in Meade County. These Iversons never lived in Meade County.

Ladner memorials which I believe are correct.
Mikal Iverson 90993193
Anna Marie "Mary" Moe Iverson (his wife) 90993083
Arnt Martin Iverson (Mikal's brother) 90993238

Below are your memorials in Brewer Cemetery, Meade County, SD that I believe are the wrong cemetery.

Mikal Iverson 30044403
Mary Iverson 30044368
Arnt Martin Iverson 30044311

I appreciate all the work you have done on Find A Grave and just want to get this sorted out.

Thank you

Kem Wefer

RE: I do not at this time Hulda Marie
Her memorial by you is no longer listed in Lyman Cemetery so that part is done. Thank you, but now there are two memorials for her. Your memorial has the obit but the other has a headstone photo. I don't know how to combine memorials so I'll let you take it from here. Thanks for your help and sorry for causing more work for you. Have a good one-Marsha

RE: I do not at this time Hulda Marie
I did some checking and found there is another memorial for her #78821475 that has a headstone photo and a cemetery listed. Maybe the two memorials can be combined?? Thanks for the quick response-Marsha
