WATSON/SHOEBURG - George and Melissa WATSON had at least 4 children, Hilda, James, Mary, and Glennie. In 1870 they were in Burns, LaCrosse Cty, Wisconsin. In 1880, George (54, widowed or divorced) and son James (17) were miners in Nevada Gulch, Dakota Territory (SW of Lead, SD); Hilda (19) and Glennie (7) were servants in the William Shane household back in Burns. Glennie later married Oliver Nelson SHOEBURG and had daughters Lydia (b. 22 Sep 1894 in Dakotas) and Alice Mable (b. 31 Jan 1896 in Deadwood, SD).

WEAVER, WICKS, and CRAMER. These are the names of my grandparents and great grandparents. I am trying to find out any and all that I can. Mertie WEAVER was my grandmother and she married Fred WICKS from England around 1901 I believe. She had (according to 1910 census) 4 children by 1910. She and the children were on the census but not Fred. I would like to find out more about Wicks if possible. I have a document from a children's home that shows where Mertie had placed 2 of her children up for adoption but, But got nowhere there either. If any one has any information on these families and can be of help please do so.

WICKS WEAVER CRAMER I am trying to find out where I would be able to get information on children place in the "SOUTH DAKOTA CHILDREN'S HOME. This was in 1911 and 1911. The children were Mary WICKS she would have been about 5 years old in 1911 and Robert WICKS he would have been about 7. I have a paper from there that states to whom it may concern and talks about documents showing the name and birth date of said Children. It states that there are original records at the South Dakota Children's Home Society. I would like to find how I can obtain a copy of these records. Robert was my father and Mary was my Aunt. If some knows how I can get copies of the full records I would be able to finally find out about my parentage. Margie

Lois Hickey ( Mon Dec 6 03:15:42 2004
We visited Deadwood's cemetery this summer and on the way up to Wild Bill Hickock's grave, there was a tombstone as we started up the steps, which had the name TEHON on it, and I photographed both sides. Last week I took a better look and realized it was a relative of my husbands whose family had immigrated from Ireland in 1885 and homesteaded in Custer County, NE. PATRICK died in a train accident. The other name on the stone was of MABLE who died at 9 years of age. There is a smaller stone at the foot of the plot but I cannot read what is on it. If anyone is out there, could you check for me? I am wondering if it is his wife and her name. Does anyone know of this family? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
