I am an archaeologist by trade but genealogy, history and cemeteries are my passions. I live in rural Clark County Washington and travel throughout Oregon and Washington, and would love to take any photos for other researchers and family members.|
Everyone may use my photos and documents however you wish. I take & post these photos for families to enjoy and to help with ancestry research, so please do make use of them!

|AnisahD||Re: Fountain Cemetery, SD|
Morgan, I see you are managing a few of the grave memorials of Fountain. I wanted to let you know of an opportunity taking place this spring.
I have volunteered to "manage" the Fountain Cemetery project efforts and in so doing am working to take the near abandoned cemetery & clean it up, as well as expand the online information relating to those buried in the cemetery.
This spring I will be working on the physical beautification of the cemetery and hopefully building of a directory and a new sign at the entrance of the cemetery (with help from a metalsmith in the area).
I am touching base with those who may have relatives there, so that they have the opportunity to (1) come out this spring & care for graves (2) send memorial wreaths or other flowers for graves or in other ways consider donating to the project.
Feel free to contact me if you have an interest or question. This project has been initiated by our local Brookings Area Genealogical Society and is only one of numerous cemeteries being "adopted" by volunteers.

Thank you so very much for the information about Raymond's date and place of death! Wherever did you find it? Now if I could just find where he is buried!
Thanks, again, for your help.

Thanks so much and I look forward to receiving the documentation. Send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
|Marsha Moon||RE: Frances Alse Brammer|
Where may I find the research on the Brammer line? Elizabeth is the only child of David & Frances Alse Brammer Ragsdale to have a legal death record showing them as her parents. I found David's 2nd marriage and his probated will. I am certain not all of the sons had been listed, but land sales proved Jacob. I just don't know about a David who lived across the state line in TN. I hadn't any knowledge her parentage, when/where she died, etc.. I just felt certain that where ever I found them, I would find the Moon's also. Thank you so much for finding me. I look forward to your response. Sincerely, Marsha Moon

You are welcome. No James name was not on this stone. I looked around the stone, but there were no other stones nearby with that last name. I walked a little over half of the cemetery. I started on the other side. I will try to get back there soon to finish this cemetery. Maybe he is in the part that I have not done yet.
|James Greenfield||RE: Thank You Again!|
You are welcome
|James Greenfield||RE: Benjamin Scudder Arnold|
Sure, I can transfer the memorial to you.
|AnisahD||RE: Fountain Cemetery|
Nice idea Morgan! Would have to find out if the state will allow me to use goats! I already know a goat owner or two. Also there is a F.A.G. member you should contact. Larry COOL. He has access to the platt map of the cemetery, as he runs a funeral home in the area & also is a part of the Brookings County Genealogical Society. He told me he has the Fountain cemetery listing of everyone buried there (including those without markers). Your post reminded me I need to hook up with him to get that list so I can begin figuring out who needs artian crafted markers. If I have to make them out of whatever and refurbish the cemetery myself I'm willing as others are doing for my relatives in the NW and in Kansas. My relatives are in Washingtonb & Oregon. I I can relate to being far from my relations' graves.

Hello Morgan, I go out each spring before the grass gets waist high, to monitor the Fountain Cemetery. I will go out this coming spring, once the snow is gone & the dirt path/road is open to see if I can get a better image of the bottom of the stone. Many have sunken into the soil or perhaps its the plant matter has turned to soil and thus raised the soil levels since the original burials. The cemetery is SUPPOSED to be maintained by the State of SOuth Dakota, but the state hasn't maintained it due to the fact no one is filing complaints. The more complaints, the more they get their butts in gear & their budgets get allocated to the proper county people so the cemetery can be properly maintained. This coming spring, I plan on planting some flowers at all the identified graves. To help mark them. Also wanting to rebuild the cemetery's sign which is now rotted away. I need to find a way to get a bush cutting machine into the cemetery to cut back an evasive brush that is taking over the cemetery and preventing viewing of the few stones present.
