line, there seems to have
two Kennebec families who owned farmland in Kennebec, Range 75/Map26. One
was located in Sec8/40acres and the
otherwas located in Sec17/80acres. Are there any known descendants of these two
families still living in the area ? I live
in the far
NE part of IL, McHenry County, which is where my Kennebec(k)
ancestors settled in 1843. They did have
in Wis. and Minn. after I came across the town of Kennebec SD, I
believe there may be a connection

MIDGUARD - I am researching the Knute MIDGUARD family. There were
several who came from Norway in the 1890's.
They originally settled in Lake County, South Dakota, and I only now am finding
out that several lived in Jones and Lyman
counties, homesteading and then apparently buying land. Knute applied for
naturalization in Lyman County and I believe
that his three daughters died there before 1918 or so. They would be Fern,
Gladys and Florence. "His wife's 1967 obituary
states that she and Knute homesteaded near Murdo where they raised cattle and
operated an 'inland store. They returned to
Sioux Falls in 1918. March 2, 2005
for info about the SATHER/MILLAGE families. My grandfather was Edward Sather,
in Lincoln county. He had two sisters, Anna
and Jennie ( in one note she is
referred to as Seina ) we think her birth date
was 1875 but we don't know where. There were the three children in the Knute and
(or Johanna ) SATHRE family.
(spelling originally was Sathre then changed to Sather ) Seems this Seina had
11 or 12 children. We think Seina m.
Silas Millage and
Anna also m. a Millage. Knute and Jorannd a immig. to
the U.S. in 1867 on the ship " Nora " where
daughter Anna was born. We know nothing of where Seina--Jennie--
was born. The
only one we have heard about is an
Oscar Millage of Brule county who d. Sept. 24,1918 from influenza. Any info will
be appreciated. We would like
any living cousins. Thank you, Barbara Larson 1026 Tom St. Vermillion, SD 57069

NAVIN - Do you have an obit for John Navin? And is this
the John Navin who was born about 1840 in Ireland? Pat Navin is the son, Patrick J., who John lived with
in Presho. The
sad story is that he left a wife and 7 children;
the inspiring story is that she kept the family together and raised them
all by herself. I met her 40-plus years
Seattle, where the family landed, and she was the definition
of "spunky"! Thanks, Paula
(one of his zillion great-grandchildren)
0'TOOLE - I am looking for any info on the O'TOOLE family. My

PEYTON - I am researching my mother Mable Marie Peyton. She was the
daughter of Charles and Nellie Peyton early
pioneers. All my life my mother told me that she was born March 1, 1915 in
Kennebec, Lyman Co. In my research I find
that her older brother, Ralph Eugene Peyton, was born on January 18, 1915. That
makes my mother's birth impossible.
Any help you can give, or advise where to turn next, would be much appreciated.
Thank you, Deb Dapichotta@cs.co

Emmons County, North Dakota. The 1910 Census shows him and his family living in
Delmont, Douglas County, South Dakota. I have not found him in the 1900 census

probably living with his parents
in Delmont. Any information appreciated.
