Add Child Link & Sibling
Can you please link my sister, Linda Jane Krystek [Find-a-Grave Memorial #:138730218] to James P. Krystek, Sr. who is my father and hers. She passed away in Oct. 29, 2014 and she was cremated. He had a brother Stanley Richard Krystek, Sr. who passed away on April 9, 2016. I will contact you again with a memorial number on him when I get one.

RE: I do not know what
Can you add the following information on his page

Basil Leo Rogers is son to Shepard "Shep" Shurman Rogers... he is listed in the 1910 US census.

He is my great grandfather born in 1898 and died in 1951.

for some reason there is no page on their gravesite...

His spouse Verna Maria Peters lived from 1900 to 1990 and died in Huron SD.

She is also not listed on

White Eyes Memorial Cemetery
I think he is suppose to be in this cemetery from what I read Holy Fellowship Cemetery

Charles Mix County
South Dakota USA

I think that is where his memorial is - what am I missing Ellen. Be glad to correct it.

RE: I do not know what to do
I went and checked the Saint Margaret's for the other Mateickas pictures and they were all there except Roberts- so I added that picture. So I think it is all good! The mystery of the missing Mateickas in Kimball is solved! Thank you for being a fellow volunteer-- your work is much appreciated.

RE: Ernest Roberg #31211582
Hi Ellen,
I believe you when you said it's gets confusing with all the paperwork involved in genealogy. My initial question to you was the heading which says John Ernest Roberg. I asked where you got the John. You mentioned obit in one of our previous emails listed below. His Birth, and Death records say Ernest Eugene Roberg.
I got to digging in some of the paperwork I have in my notebooks and found an entry for John Ernest Roberg in the BLACK HILLS NUGGETS for the Gustave Cemetery dated November 1985. Now I have to wonder where BLACK HILLS NUGGETS got their information. The certified copy of Ernest's birth record and his death certificate say Ernest Eugene Roberg. Confusing for someone that only lived a year.
Thank you for all your help.

RE: Ernest Roberg #31211582
Hi Ellen,
I'm not sure that you got my email concerning Ernest Roberg's name. You mention you got John Ernest Roberg from an obituary. Could you tell me where you found this obit? My family always referred to him as Ernest. Birth, baptism, death certificates and tombstone refer to him as Ernest.
Thank you for your assistance.

RE: I need help figuring out
No problem, I just assumed he was interred in Dewey County because he died in Dewey. I will try to follow up.
Take care!!!!!!!

Ernest Roberg #31211582
Hi Ellen,
I am trying to do some work on my Robergs and Sorensons in the Gustave, Harding area.
I noticed when looking at Ernest Roberg's page that he is listed as John Ernest Roberg at the top. His birth certificate and death certificate list his name as Ernest Eugene Roberg (no John). He was B 13 Dec 1927 in Gustave, Harding, SD and D 24 Dec 1928 Camp Crook, Harding SD.
I also wrote you another email about Brent (Bernt/Ben) and Anna (Sorenson) Roberg. I tried to connect Ernest to Bernt and Anna Roberg, his parents but not sure I accomplished the feat.

Thank you for the great work you are doing for genealogists.

Hi Ellen :D

I will be going back through MTN View to remove the duplicate photos. I think Steve may have removed the one from Grace French-- I didn't see two there. Anyhow-- Yes there are duplicates, and yes I will remove them. - Thanks!

Thank you so much for her edits and the research you did to help me. They have been added.

Added by Janice (O'Bryan) Byington on Apr 05, 2016 6:05 PM

Thanks for sending the edits. I did not change her last name however, because Miller-Genes was her legal name. I did add Miller as her maiden name. Thanks again!

Re: Smith O'Bryan
I don't know who the parents of Smith O'Bryan in South Dakota, I think the birth date is wrong on all censuses say born about 1858 NY, this is why when I found the Smith O'Bryan in South Dakota with the birth year of 1852 I thought it was Smith Theron O'Bryan son of Paris & Jane (Cornell) O'Bryan but it not, he is buried in Fulton Co. NY & died in 1911, to make matters worse, the Smith O'Bryan in South Dakota lived for a time in Faribault Co. MN where Paris O'Bryan died. So I had to do more digging to find out which was which, Smith Theron O'Bryan, split time with his biological father Paris & his foster adoptive parents Simmons & Mary Ann Hart in New York state, confirmed which was which by a probate notice for his daughter Cora in 1925, in Fulton Co. NY who never married, stating next of kin which listed her father's half-sibling, which were Paris & Eunice (Taylor) O'Bryan children. The Smith O'Bryan in South Dakota on censuses had father born in Ireland Mother New York while Paris & Jane were both born in NY. Just delete everything I sent, it is wrong. I am totally sorry, but this was a very confusing mess, with common places lived but not related at all. I suspect Smith O'Bryan died in South Dakota's parents are John & Catherine O'Bryan of Rensselaer, New York, but not totally convinced unless a death certificate can confirm.

RE: Thanks you for
Thanks for your work on getting the information on him. I am his nephew and never met him. I have looked for him for years. I am so happy I finally found him.

I really like Find A Grave and want to get more involved in helping out in my area.
