I don't know what list to post this to, but I did want to tell someone in Holt Co a story about an old resident or
your County, he was Albert Brown, he was an adventurer in his younger life, he
came to Dakota Territory in about 1870, heard about gold in the Black Hills
and came out to help found Rapid City in Feb of 1876, he moved his family North
to what would be Harding County and in 1900 packed them up and moved them to
Holt County MO, his wife died in Camp Crook SD on a visit, in 1928, Albert
lived in Mound City until he died in 1937, he is buried in Camp Crook with his
wife.I wondered why he came to Holt county and what there was there that made
him stay until he was an old man, he had no family there, they children all
made there way back to SD and Montana. I don't think there is anything to find
there I was just curious about the place he went to lived, I am not a relative,
but I am writing his biograpy for the 130 birthday of Rapid City.

NOTE: I got this in an email from Ellenb7580 who is using an AOL address. (you should know her email addy if you think about it a bit!)
