Thank you for posting the photo of my mom's (Louise Simmons) grave in the New Underwood SD cemetery.

I live in Montana so don't get down there very often.

Thanks again

Thank you so much for providing the photos for Peter and Margarete Frisch. This is part of my wife's family and she has been looking for a long time to find information on this family.

Spaulding family - Fountain, SD
Valerie, I noticed you manage the Spaulding grave memorial in the Fountain Cemetery. I wondered if perhaps this Spaulding is also related -- #50424398 ?

Initially his gravestone was transcribed wrong, so it was spelled Spauldine, rather than Spaulding.

If you are related, do you wish to have this memorial transferred so you can link the child to his relatives?

Fountain Cemetery, SD
Hello Valerie,

I'm contacting you as one of those managing a memorial for a Fountain Cemetery grave.

I live 5 miles from Fountain Cemetery, which I have volunteered to care for as part of our local Brookings County Genealogical Society project.

I'm contacting those managing graves right now so as to inquire if they have any special needs for photos ect as spring approaches... I will be heading out to the cemetery to mow, repair animal damage and fence repairs, etc at the almost abandoned cemetery. Its off the beaten path, that requires some hardy driving over rutted and washed out trails. But each spring I try to make it to the cemetery.

This spring, its my goal to try to identify more of the cemetery graves & to get SOME Form of marker on a percentage of those currently unmarked.

Larry Cool has provided me a Google Document that lists the entire list of those inturned at the cemetery. I hope to get that up soon.

Anyhow, if you have relatives there that you would like to have graves given flowers to, please let me know. I'm looking to landscape a bit once we get the debris cleared & stones back upright, etc.
A local sculptor has volunteered to make a new steel sign to replace the broken wooden one. So hopefully the cemetery will see "new life".

Sincerely Anisah D
