I am in the process of working on our family history and am seeking information concerning my father's (Carl I. Youngworth) two younger brothers, William George Youngworth and Walter Ruby Youngworth and their families. My father and mother were long time residents of Yankton, SD William and his wife Lois Youngworth lived for many years at 3119 E. 2nd St., in Sioux City. William was born in Tyndall, SD on 4/26/1906 and died 11/01/1966. I did locate a "M" Youngworth on the SS Death Index, born 12/07/1904 and died 6/24/99 which may have been Lois. I know she was alive in 1994-1995. William was president & manager of the Concrete Products Company, a cement block manufacturing company in Sioux City in 1945 and also was active in the field of Ornithology. I believe both are buried at Graceland Cemetery in Sioux City. I am searching for copies of obituaries for both William and Lois, plus the date and place of their marriage, if that information is available. Walter and his wife Izez lived in Sioux City in the mid 20's before moving to Council Bluffs, Iowa. Walter operated coal companies in Sioux City, Council Bluffs and Omaha. He was born in Tyndall, SD on 2/19/1902 and died on 10/22/1951 in Council Bluffs and is buried at Graceland Cemetery in Sioux City. His wife died in 1995-1997 in Omaha and I believe she is also buried at Graceland. They had 3 children, Valeria (Patsy) Jean Youngworth, Billie (William?) Youngworth who died at age 7, and Barbara Ann Youngworth. I received a copy of Walter's obituary from the Pottawattamie County Genealogical Society. I am seeking a copy of Inez's obituary if available, marriage information on Walter and Inez, and the birth records of their 3 children, who were probably born in Sioux City and Billie's obituary as I believe he died in Sioux City and also is buried at Graceland. Please let me know the fees associated with the above searches, plus copy and mailing costs and I will mail a check for that amount to you. My grandmother, Lydia M. Youngworth lived in Sioux City from the early 1920s to 1953. She worked in the children's shoe department at the no longer in existence T. S. Martin Department Store for 30+ years. I have at 46" X 8" all employee photograph of a 6/26/1923 picnic at the "Council Oak Club," taken by the Art Temple Studio, 414 Pierce. There must be several hundred people in the photo. If your society would be interested in the picture, or if you know anyone who would be, I would be happy to send it at no charge. Thanks for any help you can give me.

Comments: Looking for info on Wallace William Youngs / Young, moved to Sioux City about 1896 or later, from Boscobel, WI. Specifically where and if he died and is buried in Woodbury Co. His brother Frank and his family came out later and joined him, in the 19teens. Wallace served in the Civil War, for Illinois. He may have been married to a Mary LeFever Chambers at this time. If you have an info or suggestions, please respond. Thanks.
