Welcome to the Sheridan County Daybreakers Genealogical Society's Home Page

This image of a postcard of early days in Plentywood, Montana was submitted by Darrel K. Waters.

We hope you will enjoy exploring the information we have compiled on Sheridan County's history and its families.   There will be a link to a Sheridan County Picture page which will feature more pictures such as the one below which will be coming soon.

Check out the newly added Cemetery Project page! We have posted the records from some of the cemeteries. More cemetery records will be added as time permits!

The Sheridan County History Page includes not only the history of Sheridan County, but also the histories of several other communities as well as a story of the "Outlaws of the Big Muddy". Watch for other items to be added soon!

Volunteers from the family of Shirley (Simonis) Calton were in Plentywood last summer and re-indexed the Plentywood Cemetery and took photos of the tombstones at the cemetery. Look for this index and photo links to be posted in 2010! Shirley grew up in Plentywood and is a member of our Society. Thanks Shirley!

Three excellent County History books have been written: Sheridan's Daybreak (1970), Sheridan's Daybreak II (1985) and Sheridan's Daybreak III (2005). If you are interested in ordering a Sheridan's Daybreak III book, please click here. This book was published in 2005 and is currently for sale through the Sheridan's Daybreak III Committee and the Sheridan County Daybreakers Genealogical Society. The first two history books are out of print and only available on the secondary market.
