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.

RE: Do you know
The ashes of Allen Carroll (Mac) McDonald and his wife Gertrude Phoebe (Sallie) Smeenk McDonald will be scattered together out on the ranch.

RE: Edits
I sent you several edits for that little cemetery. You are the local expert so any you feel are wrong, feel free to deny. I did some quick research on Ancestry, but that is all. Susan

RE: carl W Nordin
I'll leave it to you to figure out the Charles & Carl Nordin mystery. My husband was visiting in the area and very quickly took the pix in the rain for me so some are better than others. But glad to add what he found since there weren't any uploaded for that that little cemetery. We are in West Virginia so no do-overs, LOL! Susan

RE: Oh that did not work out well
Oh, too bad. Will have to see if I can find that unfamiliar name anywhere. Maybe that was the original spelling of Tsiska.
Thanks so much for checking on it.

RE: thanks for the
I live in the Vetal area. Back in the 1930's my parents rented a house from Anton. One of the houses he built was for my grandparents, Ed & Martha Livermont. One of my goals is to get to the Old Vetal cemetery, but it is out in pasture land and hard to get to.

RE: thanks for the obit
There is a Frank Tiska (sp) 1864-1917 buried in the same county as this family. I'm quite sure it is his father, but don't know how to find out. The grave is in the "Old Vetal Cemetery" in Bennett Co. and you recorded it.
I doubt if they had a census back then.
