RESEARCHING PIONEERS OF CROOK COUNTY, WYOMING including surrounding areas in Northeast Wyoming and Western South Dakota---the BLACK HILLS.

Working on Hulett Cemetery, Hulett, WY, Moore Hill Cemetery, Hulett, WY; Alva Cemetery, Alva, WY; Tower Cemetery, Devil's Tower, WY; Rose Hill Cemetery, Spearfish, SD and Pine Slope Cemetery in Belle Fourche, SD and Green Lawn Cemetery, Rich Hill, MO.

I have the book "Pioneers of Crook County" published in 1981 for Crook Co. Wyoming and I have "Hulett Area Past and Present" published in 1985 for Hulett, Wyoming. I also have "Cowboys and Sodbusters" on the pioneers of Butte county, South Dakota. I will be glad to check these books for your research.

Except for family memorials and the memorials in the "Cowboy Brigade Project", I am willing to transfer memorials to anyone.

If something happens where I am unable to maintain my memorials, findagrave administrators have my permission to transfer all my memorials to Crook County Library #48178214 except for the memorials in the virtual cemeteries MY FAMILY and the COWBOY BRIGADE PROJECT. Transfer those memorials to my brother Alex Steiger #48246645

RE: Pine Slope and St Paul
Thank you for your help and dedication as well! I still have a lot of photos to upload. It takes time to upload them all, but very worth it. I will get those photos in Alva next time I'm that way, no problem. Again thank YOU!

Leona Hitzel name correction
Dear Carl,

Forest Lawn's online database shows Leona Hitzel to actually be Leonard Hitzel. He died on 10-31-1928.
Am submitting the corrections piecemeal to the creator of the memorial. There is one photo on the memorial but the date of death is partially obscured by grass. Thank you for all that you do for Find-A-Grave users!

Nelson memorials
Thank you for the changes that you made to the memorials of Stanley and Dorathea (Dawson) Nelson and for letting me know that I had omitted the month for Stanley's birth. I have now corrected that. Appreciate the head's up.

Well, Carl, I guess it's back to reality now that our season is over--enjoyed exchanging comments with you concerning our teams. I will root for A&M except for when they play the Cats.

If you happen to live in Crook County, watch out for my Wyoming ancestors--some of them caused quite a stir in the Sundance area! Just ask Dr. Julius Clarenbach. Take care. sjm

RE: John Gowin
I never thought of it that way. There are two Gowins that died in Bates on Missouri dc's and several that died in Vernon. However, only 3 McGowins and 2 died in Miller County and one in Butler County. We wish we knew who had Papinville Cemetery book so we would know for sure. In the meantime, you might put that note in his memorial that last name might be McGowin.
Thanks, Carl.

RE: Ed Eaton

Thanks for your help, I have been looking for some sort of tie between the "brothers" Ed Eaton owned a bar in Basin for a while and I suspect that that plays into the different identity and birth places. The only connection I have found is that one obituary. I suspect that everyone knew of the fame of Harold Eaton and Ed was willing to take part in that notoriety. I take it you know Wyoming paper project. Great place to look for Torrey's riders. I am at Ten Sleep and can send a few files on George Saban a rough rider.

A&M is a great addition to our conference and one terrific competitor. I hope that both our teams go real far in the big dance.

Eaton Brothers in Sheridan
i am looking to connect Ed Eaton buried in Ten Sleep with two brothers on Wolf, Sheridan, WY.

Here is one obituary

Basin Republican no. 52 June 07, 1912, page 8
Death Of Ed Eaton.
Ed Eaton, one of the old timers of the Tensleep country and formerly in business in Basin, died last Saturday afternoon in Cody of spotted fever after a brief illness.
Deceased was born in 1858 and was a pioneer of Wyoming. He was unmarried and is survived only by two brothers in Wolfe, this state.
The remains were taken to Manderson on Monday on the train and from there taken overland to Tensleep where the funeral was held Tuesday morning. W. T. Whaley and J. C. Frison of Tensleep met the remains here.
Deceased, during his many years of residence here, had many friends and acquaintances who will sincerely mourn his departure.
