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.

Change of name
Yes I changed from L Davenport. I thought about it for quite a long time and decided it was time to do it. Scott is my oldest child and it took me years to put a memorial on findagrave. I still have not added a bio. Someday I might be ready.

RE: fyi
I can do edits if I manage the memorial. If someone else magages the memorial I can not edited anything.

RE: Foster Jonas Walker
I found a way to get Find A Grave to delete the duplicate record. As for the cemeteries there are two with similar names in two different counties...Akicita means "soldier". The cemetery in Shannon county is Akicita Owicahe Lakota Freedom Veterans Cemetery. The cemetery in Mellette county is Sicangu Akicita Owicahe. Thank you for your confidence that I can figure out where the individual's belong. It's very tough on all of the reservations in South Dakota, however Pineridge and Rosebud being so close together is more difficult. Good luck in your endeavors. Suki Davey

Ellen, Mr. Walker is already in the correct cemetery, Akicita Owicahe Lakota Freedom Veterans in Kyle, Shannon County, South Dakota, entered by Brent. The record you transferred to me is not the correct Akicita Owicahe because it is in Mellette there is a duplicate of Mr. Walker and I don't think I can delete it because you created it. You'll have to get Find A Grave to delete it. I know you like to create memorials so individuals are not lost, but please don't transfer them to me....I've left South Dakota and have no way to get them to their proper cemetery. Regards, Suki Davey

Dale Haselhorst
Asking you to please remove your photo on Dale Haselhorst is a duplicate of one that I entered when I created the memorial and yours was added the next day. Thank you.

Meant to answer your message.

I do still do some, not as many since I really got burned out for awhile. Plus some truly rude messages before I blocked my e=mail. Now I'm back when I'm not doing grandma stuff with the younger grandkids. The older ones are not in need of a hands-on grandma very often.

You are one of the
only people who have been at this longer than I have, and I see your name a lot, so glad you were doing memorials and I guess you still do some but not as many as you once did?

Please remove your photo from this memorial--Norma Cammack #80877257. It is a duplicate of one that someone placed before you did. Thank you.
