Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Jerauld County-Buffalo County area of South Dakota.

Cemeteries have always been beautiful places for me, and I enjoy looking at the monuments, the views, and the lovely epitaphs. The variety reminds me very much of the differences of people.

I'm a history nerd, and love genealogy. Being a graver correlates nicely into my hobbies. When I add a memorial for a cemetery, I want it to be as accurate as possible.

If there's anything I can do to help, just shoot me a message. Woonsocket and Plankinton are just a short drive away. Have camera, will travel!

Also: Any photo I take of grave markers are meant to enrich others' lives. Please feel free to use the image, or if you want an original file (larger), I can email it to you.

Lucinda and Frank Weeks
Hello, Kate -

I noticed that you had posted a photograph for Lucinda Weeks's gravestone (119708533) in the Hope Cemetery in Wessington Springs. I was wondering if you had a photo of her husband's grave. His name is Frank Weeks (119883346). Also, it is extremely hard to read the birth dates and death dates on the gravestones. Can you help me out with these dates? Thanks so much for all that you do!

Tornado through Wessington Springs
Hello -

I thought of you when the tornado hit Wessington Springs. I hope you and your family are all fine. I was also wondering how the cemeteries fared through the storm.

RE: Aalbu, Martin Sverre
When I search on memorial #81642898 I reach Violet M "Vi" Madsen Mebius. My obit memorial # 130251987 just show his name as being Sverre Aalbu. But according to the obit for 81642898 his 1st name must have been Martin Middle name Sverre last name Aalbu.

If I search on just the last name Aalbu the only one that comes up is the one I created.

Maybe I am missing something.

Sverre Aalbu is not a relative of mine. If you would like I would transfer it too you.

Thanks for posting James T Ferguson's grave. His wife Letitia Corbett Ferguson was my greatgrandmother's older half-sister. My greatgrandparents had a ranch in Woonsocket a hundred years ago.

I see I did a typo with her maiden name on the subject line. Also her husband was Myron Alveson.
