I grew up in South Dakota but no longer live there. My roots in SD go back furthest to the Sparling family who settled the area when it was still the Dakota Territory. Many of my ancestors initially settled and/or were born in Spink County, although some moved to other parts of the state or further west. My paternal ancestral lines include: Anderson, Huebner, Long, Scriven/Scrivens, and Sundback. My maternal ancestral lines include: Bartholomew, Baum, Fuller, Meehan, Smith, Sparling, Spencer, Trelford and Weidman.
With the recent changes at FindAGrave, I have acquired many memorials of my extended family tree as well as memorials in Spink County, South Dakota. I am updating these memorials to add additional information and to remove living individuals and copyrighted obituaries. Facts from obituaries are verified and posted in abstract form no matter what the date of the obit. (Please note that not all my memorials have been updated). It is against FindAGrave policy to post copyrighted obituaries and to show living individuals.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME EDITS FOR BIRTH DATES FROM THE CENSUS RECORDS, THEY VARY FROM CENSUS TO CENSUS AND ARE NOTORIOUSLY UNRELIABLE!!
