Jane Clements Mon Apr 5, 1999 I have a general question, that I am hoping a native SD can answer. I would like to know the date of a devastating blizzard that hit Yankton in about the 1960's. I am looking for the death certificates for 2 MALIKOWSKI brothers, and the only info I have on them is that they died during this blizzard (sometime in the 60's, from my grandmother's recollections). I am also looking for info on a Lucy MALIKOWSKI, fostered out to an ABRAMOWSKI family, and appears that she later changed her name to MCKLOSKEY. Brothers and sisters of hers were baptized in St. Wenceslaus Church in Tabor, and some family buried in the Polish Cemetery in Lesterville, but I have been unable to find anything on her to specifically link her to this family. She was later married in St. Vincent's church in Deadwood.
Crafty107@AOL.Com Mon April 5, 1999 I am looking for more information on my Grandfather Frank NOONAN who was born in Yankton in 1879, he had several brothers and sisters and their parents were James NOONAN and Katherine MORGAN. Story is told that there was land that was owned by the NOONAN Family, just looking for more information on the whole family and looking for more cousins.Vicki Okerlund Mon Oct 12, 1998 I am trying to research the Wallock surname. I am specifically interested in finding out information on Jacob Wallock (last name could also bespelled Walock, Waloch, or Walloch). Jacob Wallock married Eva Placzek in Poland or Germany about 1860. We have reason to believe he immigrated to the US around 1880 or 1882. We do not have any records about where he immigrated from, but know Jacob died in Lesterville, Yankton, SD in January of 1919. We know his parents were Adam Wallock and Katerina MACKOVICH but we have no other information about any of his (Jacob's) siblings. I have read in the Yankton County Book that there was a Joseph Wallock who son was August Wallock who was a Yankton County Commissioner for many years. We have reason to believe from an Aunt that Jacob had a brother named Joseph, but to date have not been able to link our Jacob Wallock with this Joseph--who we found on the 1900 census. I have also requested a death certificate for this Joseph Wallock from the state of South Dakota, but their files did not find anyone matching. If any one has any information regarding this family and could link these two names together,could you please contact me.

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.
