I would like to offer some 'pieces' of information that might help you -- and future researchers.

1. The individual whom you list as 'Kingley, Nellie' -- is Nellie Mae REYNOLDS KINZLEY, first wife of John KINZLEY, Jr. (b 23 Mar 1860 Green Creek [Cape May Co] NJ d 23 Jun 1934 Montrose [McCook Co] SD -- buried Sun Prairie Baptist Church Cemetery, Salem [McCook Co] SD). Nellie Mae REYNOLDS was probably born in Rock Creek [Rock Co] MN, the daughter of Alvin P. and Mariette A. REYNOLDS. Nellie was supposed to have died shortly after giving birth to her second daughter, Edith KINZLEY MORAN (b 1891). You note that Mariette is also buried in this Cemetery -- which was additional news to me !!! By way of cross-reference, John KINZLEY, Jr. is my maternal GGrandfather by his second wife, Wilhilmina "Minnie" Albertina LINDELL.

2. Minnie M. KINZLEY is the daughter of Francis "Frank" S. and Lillian "Lil" E. AIKEN KINZLEY, Sr. Frank is the younger brother of the above referenced John KINZLEY, Jr. Alan R. BIES (who used to live in Salem [McCook Co] SD is a direct descendant of Frank and Lil AIKEN KINZLEY, and may be able to provide you with additional information.
