Yoeman, Myrtle Letter (H75-84) 1 item

Letter to Grace H. Carpenter, June 24, 1905. In this typescript copy of the original letter, Yoeman offers a brief description of homesteading in Lyman County, discussing the coming of the railroad, the character of settlers, and the price of land.

Yokley, Annie L. Papers (H71-1) 2/3 cubic foot

Most of this material was collected by Mrs. Yokley during research for her book, Grass and Water, published by State Publishing Company, Pierre, ca. 1955. The book is a compilation of biographical sketches of pioneer South Dakota ranchers.

Young, Eugene Miner Papers (H90-114, H94-65, H96-44) 10 cubic feet

Letters and photographs (1880s-1980s) of a family who farmed near McLaughlin (1917) on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation and later in Sully County. While the bulk of this collection relates to farming and other business ventures, there are a significant amount of letters documenting the family’s relationship with Young’s stepmother Carrie as well as genealogical material related to Mrs. Young’s (Ida Ingvaldson) family. Young’s daughter Carol married Dennis Anderson, and her papers are listed above.
