Terry D. Smith Thurs Apr 30 03:35 1998 I have a article from the Book "Progressive Men of Montana" at the LDS
Library- Catalog No. 978.6 D3p also Film #1000176 Published in Chicago byA. W. Bowen & Co. there is an article on "Xavier Belleadux recognized as one of the leading business men of Browning, Teton County, Montana He was born in the *territory of Dakota, at Yankton on January 18,1859. Here his father, Mitchell Belleadux, carried on both farming and
freighting for 25 years.* The important part is *'d. What I am trying to do without much success is locate anything that would show that Mitchell Belleadux was in Yankton for the period of 25 years!! It would appear that I need to check the 1850 or
1860 census's. To make things a little more difficult, my mothers surname is now Billedeaux. And if we have Canadian roots it would be Bilodeau. Rumor has it that my gggrandfather Xavier Billedeaux was a fur trapper, and moved to Montana to follow his trade. Other surnames were Armelle or Armel, even Hamell and Simoneaux or Simoneau.Anyone with suggestions or hints, please contact me.

Kate Andrews Sat May 10 21:38 1997 In 1881 Otto Nicholas BYE and his wife Ragnild BYE came to join siblings Sarah and Ole KJELDSETH from Norway who had come to Yankton, South Dakota in 1870. Through some kind assistance from people in Norway, I have a goodly amount of research on these families. Some names that have married into these lines include Gieger Olsen Lund Thomas Schultz Moore I am aware that thier are still Cousins of mine in the Gayville area and that there is likely to be others that I do not know about. I would be happy to share my windfalls with others. I haven't gotten so far as to get a web page for family history so any queries need to be addressed to be and should include either the Bye or Kjeldseth name in the subject line.

Earl Rook Tue Aug 20 06:24:30 1996 I am researching the KIPP family in South Dakota. Specifically, I would like to know how to go about requesting patient information/records from the old Yankton State Hospital. My great grandmother, Susan BAUMAN KIPP died there and, because mental health problems seem to run in the family, I would very much like to obtain medical information on her condition. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. I don't even have an address for the institution, or the holder of its records if a different institution. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
