Letcher, SD area cemeteries
- I have been working on several cemetery projects. I have information on:
Prairie Home Cemetery, Butler Twp., Sanborn Co., SD, aka the Bulter Cemetery. (not complete) this information was from an old set of records a member of the broad had. There are also unmarked graves and grave that haven't been on the books for years.
Saint Scholastica Cemetery, Letcher, SD
West Lawn Cemetery, Letcher, SD
St. Scholastica and West Lawn are in the same location north of the information booth this St. Scholastica and south is the West Lawn.
I helped with getting the information into a data base for the Letcher cemeteries plus I have been adding obits published in the Sanborn Weekly Journal for area families.
It is surprising to realise that there is no complete record of burials for the town cemetery. The one church has been closed for a number of years, the burial maps were old but a fellow genealogy buff did her best to make an updated map on the known grave locations.
I do best at researching.
I just start a group. SanbornCoSDGenealogy@yahoogroups.com in hopes of finding other interesting in the area's genealogy, cemeteries and history.
