RE: Backes Cemetery in Meade County
So sorry but I'm still confused. As far as I can determine Faith and Opal are both towns about an hour apart in Meade Co SD. Is the county nicknamed Faith County?

Backes Cemetery in Meade County
Thank you for listing this cemetery. I am working on connecting some cousins buried in Jeffers Cemetery here in Cottonwood County MN.
It would help me to have more information on some of these individuals. You refer to a book called Faith Heritage. Could you give me a fuller title and author.
Also could you tell me how to get an obituary for this man?
Name: John B Backes
Certificate Number: 124609
Death Day: 9
Death Month: Nov
Death Year: 1928
County: Meade
Page Number: 37

Knut k Knutson father of Knut Johnson
Hi Ellen.

Knut Johnson 1881-was "I think" son of Knut K Knutson Holte (but may have been step father) 1844-1924, buried in South Dakota.

When the family lived in Blair, he was known as Knut Knutson Holte (census 1895, 1900, 1905) in Blair/Preston, WI

I'm still working on researching the family, but his father/step father is buried in South Dakota as well.

I'm not sure why Knut Johnson took last name Johnson, but perhaps it's because his father was John? Let me keep looking and I will get back to you.

I knew Knut Johnson was half brother of my Ebert Knutson, but was assuming Knut K Holte was his father, that may not be correct!

Levi Sheckler relatives
Some mystery solved....
Jennie Treaster(probably a niece of Amelia) married Clarence Osborne. Jennie (living in Miner Co, SD, was the nearest relative of Levi when he went to Soldiers Home. Jennie & Clarence apparently moved to Harding Co. Levi was probably with them when he died. I presume Levi Osborne was named after Levi Sheckler. ...The Osbornes are buried at Wakeman Cem, also.

Levi Sheckler
Regarding Levi Sheckler...Reading your memorial for him, I see there is mystery. Solving them is one of the things we enjoy.
Levi and Amelia lived in Miner Co, SD in 1900. She died in 1901. Thus you have her linked correctly. Here is a link to SDGravestones. . If you search that site for Levi, you will see that Levi's birth and military info were added to the same stone......In 1910, it looks like Levi was in a Soldiers Home in IL. The biggest mystery is yet unsolved. Why did he get buried at Wakeman Cem? No obvious relatives there. According to the 1900 census, they had no children. Also, why did someone glue on a plate that gave him the wrong birthdate?

I'm having trouble getting back into the page, I talked with my Mom she said there is a Rita Wood buried at the family cemetery. She was the first one ever buried there. Can you edit it by going into the Wood Family cemetery or by James Louis Wood, my grandfather?

There is also an unmarked grave from the small pox epidemic where five to seven children from surrounding farms are buried.

Thank you

Hello again
I have used obits. but not most of the time. They are good for some things but can be wrong so many of the times. Like with Norma Jeans. Her mother's name was Sabra not Sable so who ever put the obit in the paper didn't know her well or at least not the family history. My own son's obit I put on but left out a lot of stuff. I work for a local cemetery and know that death certificates and obits
are wrong many of the times. When my son passed away I had put into the obit he was to be buried at such and such cemetery. That was my thought at the time. I later changed my mind and he is elsewhere. What I truly disapprove of is putting death certificates on findagrave but AJ said it was ok. I have had relatives that I have put on and someone else came along and but their death certificate on. One person in particular died in a manner that I would prefer not to be out there and how she died is no ones business. Oh well we can't change it so I am sure we will continue going on doing what we do. Thanks for putting Norma on. Joyce was unable
to attend her Mothers service due to bad health.
Its to bad you got into trouble over it as there are two women in my local community that put entire
obits on the sites they make and it seems to be fine. I guess just not putting them on at all is the best solution.

Again, thanks

Again, thanks
