Linda (Wilson), I found your name  on the Lawrence Co., GenWeb site as a BEST family researcher.  I too am interested in a BEST family from the area and hope to make a connection. 

      Below is my outline descendant tree, and I have two pictures of the children of Daniel Baldwin and Nancy Jane Gier I'd be glad to share.  One of them includes Viola May (Baldwin) Best.  Please let me hear from you if you know of any of these people and perhaps we can exchange information.

My Grandmother was born in Deadwood in 1891.  Her name was Gertrude Lake and her parents were Richard C. Lake and Mary Randolph Lake.
 Richard Lake ran a general store and Mary Lake was a housewife with several other Children. Richard was from Pennsylvania and Mary was from Newport RI.  I would appreciated knowing if there are any birth or land records from that time and if these names appear anywhere.
 Thank you, Clinton Merrick

I am looking for information about a Minor Blow, who worked for Homestake Mining in the 1890-1920 period, and his brother Jesse Blow Jr. who apparently died working for Homestake during the same period.    Their brother Charles Howard Blow lived and worked in Dell Rapids from about 1895 to 1934.  Charles was born in 1867...in either Michigan or Missouri.   The information is very vague, but we are working from the recollections of my wife's father, who just celebrated his 98th birthday.  Any information you could provide would be much appreciated.
