My great-grandfather, Ivar Opsal, arrived in Yankton on 4/27/1872 from Vigmostad, Norway. He lived in Yankton most of his life. I have quite a bit of information about him if anyone else is interested. But, what I would like to know about is this: He served on the riverboat "The Far West" which ran from Yankton to Montona Territory and was at the Bighorn River in support of Custer in June, 1876. I would lke much more information about other crew members and information about how these men were perceived in Yankton. Incidently, "The Far West" was one of the riverboats featured in the recent commemorative stamp issue.

D.M. Jones Sat Oct 19 21:27:05 1996 I am looking for any information on my long lost GGGGrandfather, Christian David Owens. He was a doctor who left Virginia after the war and was last listed in the census of 1870 and 1873 as C.D. Owens, Yankton, SD 2nd Ward. Any information as to him would be more than appreciated by me and my family. Thanks!
