Through SS Death Index, tracked my Great Aunt's husband, Sylvester JUDD. Shows birth 27 Oct 1900, d. July 1975. LR. 57744 (Hermosa,Custer). I am more interested in his wife, my Great Aunt, Josephine, but am unable to track anything on her. Her maiden name was BARTOLIN0.
My father - Wayne Stanley SMITH, was born in Custer, SD, ca. 1892 and moved to Dora, Alabama ca. 1905. I have little knowledge of my family tree and am trying to correct this. Any help would be appreciated. I understand that the family place is still there.

I am researching the family of my gr-gr-grandmother, Theresa KRIEGLER. She was the daughter of Joseph KRIEGLER and Anna PIETSCH who came from Schonwald, Austria. All of their children were born there.
Their children were:
Joseph (never married)
Anna (Mrs. Lars ANDERSON)
Minnie (married a SCHILLER)
Theresa (Mrs. Leopole "Ole" RODTS)
Mary (Mrs. Isadore GARY)
If anyone has connecting family branches, I would love to share information. I have an old scrapbook with some obituaries, wedding notices, etc. that contain a fair bit of information on some of these families. I would like to find descendants of these lines. Theresa had three children, only one of whom lived to have a family of his own. My gr-grandfather was the first child, born in 1886, and given up for adoption to Chris and Kitty SWINT in about 1900. Theresa had a son, Leopold RODTS, who died in infancy, and a daughter, Mary RODTS, who never married. Theresa died in Custer, in 1930, where they had lived since coming to the Black Hills in about 1885.
Any information at all about any of these people would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted at email@example.com.

My Mother Marian Julia KESSLER was born in Custer County and raised there. Her mothers name was Margaret (Jennings not her real maiden name) KESSLER then she married Pat HYDE after the girls left home during WW11. I would be real interested if anybody in Custer who knew my mother or my grandmother would E-mail me with stories. My mother died a few years ago and we buried her in Pringle with her father and his family the POND family. I brought my mother back to Custer a few times and she started naming people we were related to but she wouldn't try to contact them so I could meet them (she didn't want to bother them). If you know anything about the KESSLER, POND connections please contact me. Judy Myers
