Thanks for stopping by.

Update from MJM:
The only record I can find for Oral and Mable Whitmore is on the 1901 school enrollment record at Tilford, McPherson Co, South Dakota. They were listed as 8 and 6 years old and their father's name as Ed Whitmore.

From Iggy:
Joseph Zeni is buried at Bear Butte Cemetery Meade County SD  Joseph Zeni and his wife lived in Sturgis SD - and this is only 9 miles from where the Whitmore boys were located in Tilford SD.

  3. Any idea where that might have been? There was a Henry Proehl living in Stewart, MN, who was born in 1886. Another one in Minneapolis born 1890.

  4. What? They left the name of the bunny off the back? That's not a good sign. If it wasn't named it might have been dinner. I'm going with Mr. Whitmore. That's a good name for a bun.
