  2. The town of Waterbury, South Dakota no longer exists. It located in Jerauld County, about 15 miles west of Wessington Springs. There are no "Bina Bidleman's" listed, but the 1910-1920 US census shows several Bidleman families there.

    Weltha Adeline "Kitty" was a Bidleman. I suspect Bina is one of her sister-in-laws.

  3. What an interesting expression on that child's face!

    Interesting that the town no longer exists, and that Bina is--so far--unfindable. Who knows? Maybe Bina is a nickname. And, if the town was on the downhill slide, maybe she moved in after the 1910 census--and out before the 1920 census.

    As usual, Iggy came up with some great finds...
