MUSSELMAN, George F. I am searching for any and all information concerning my third great grandfather, George F. MUSSELMAN or G.F. in some cases. I know that he lived in Hutchinson County, SD in 1880 according to the Census and his wife at the time was Carrie, about 30 years younger than he. His first wife was Anna TOPPING they came from Albany, NY. Their son, Theodore MUSSELMAN was in Hutchinson County at the same time and was 21 years old. I've confirmed this relationship via Theodore's death record in Sioux City, IA. I have also found a George F. Musselman listed in the MItchell, SD G.A.R. registry on this Web Page. In addition, a G.F. MUSSELMAN is buried in Riverview Cemetery, Brule Co., SD. No death record for him in Brule Co. It would have been about 1885-1890. I am looking for any other clues to his existence in SD as well as his other family members besides Theodore.

Seeking info on John Morrison PEASE, who resided in Davison County from 1881 - 1907. My great-grandfather was born in New York City on 9-21- 1859. Early on the family moved to Detroit and then Chicago, where he grew up. Believe he worked for the Chicago, Milwaukee, & St Paul Railway Company as it expanded westward in the 1870's. He settled in Mt Vernon, SD in 1882 and died there in 1907. Any info on his parents or ancestors would be appreciated. He wrote that his father was born in New York, and his mother in Ireland.

Looking for information on Joe H. LONG and Loren V. LONG, brothers who were residents of Mitchell according to the 1915 South Dakota state census. Joe H. LONG was born in 1890 in Hutchinson County and was almost surely a veteran of World War I, but I cannot find his name on any draft records or honor rolls for that war. Loren V. LONG was born July of 1900 in Hutchinson County, and, according to two of his sister's children, suffered a seizure behind the wheel and was killed in a truck crash "somewhere between Mitchell and Huron" sometime before 1936, leaving a wife named Tina and a son named Archie. That is all I have for now. Any light you can shed on these two would be greatly appreciated.
