From the book "Coeur d'Alene Diary, Chapter 5, page 25-26.

"Until July 28, no death had occurred in Wallace. On that date the question arose as to where to bury Captain Fayette Place, who had died after a long illness. Place had been a resident of the district for about two years and was a native of New York. he was about 56 years old and had been one of the first men into the Black Hils..., A suitable spot was selected on an elevated tract near where Canyon Creek empties into the South Fork-now known as Buena Vista Heights. The newspaper stated that is offered "sufficient space for the silent city which time will surely build." However, it served as a bural ground only for the next five years, when it became necessary to establish a graveyard in Nine Mile Canyon."

The Nine Mile Cemetery does have a John F. Place
The information identifies this person was born May 19, 1992 and died Jan 24, 1969; which in itself is impossible; Then it identifies him as being a Pvt Co. B, 3rd Regt Nebraska Infantry, Spanish American War.
