Found: Thomas Perryman Burial Location
Success! Using the information on Thomas Perryman's Death Certificate, I was able to track his body from the State Hospital, where he died, through the mortician that took possession of his body, to the cemetery where he was buried. He is buried in St. Michael's cemetery in Sioux Falls, SD. The cemetery director found him in the interment book, when I visited the cemetery yesterday. He is buried in the north side of the cemetery, but the interment book did not list the plot number or the grave number. In the interment book, there is a column labeled "Date of Death". The entry under that is December 27, 1915. I believe that is incorrect, and December 27 is actually the date of interment. So I believe the mystery of your great grandfather's resting place has been solved. I hope this pleases you. It has been a pleasure for me, and has given me many hours of brain stimulating activity. I am in possession of a copy of his death certificate, and would be happy to mail it to you. Please feel free to contact me any time. Best Regards, Les Smith

Thomas Perrymn Death Certificate

I am in Pierre South Dakoa today, so I went to the Department of Vital Records and obtined an informational copy of your great grandfather's death certificate. There is much vauable information on it, that I think you will want to see.

The top item on your list, I think, would be that he was transferred to Sioux Falls for burial. I will continue searching for info. from the various cemeteries to see if we can find him. In the meantime, would you like me to mail a copy of his death certificate to you?

Best Regards,

Les Smith

Hi! Would you mind deleting one of your duplicate photos of the Albee monument to allow room to upload another photograph of the site? There are two identical images of the monument posted by you on this memorial page. Thank you.

South Dakota Death Records
Quenby: I just found out that since 1912, the state of South Dakota has required that all county death certificates be sent to Pierre for archival. You may want to get that for your great-grandfather, if you haven't already. It might help you find his grave. The form is on the South Dakota Vital Records page.
Best Regards,

RE: Thank you!
My Pleasure, Quenby. She is buried in a solo grave site, about 50 feet from Raymond and Jesse. I also took a picture of their headstone, in case you would like one.

Best Regards,

Cato Cemetery, Cayuga Co., NY]
Have been told this Cemetery has been completely photographed, perhaps not all are on yet. I am quite a way from Cato, will try to check with the man who told me this. It was over a year ago I was told that so will need to go back over another request when the man who told me said he would take care of that request and he did almost immediately.
