I just recently found out that my husbands great-great grandparents were married in Yankton, South Dakota by REV. HOYT on 2-15-1865. (I think it would have been just a territory still)
Solomon STEFFEY was stationed there during the Civil War with the Iowa 6th calvery and Helen FREDERICKSON had just moved there with her mother(Eliza TENNY) and Step-father (Henry MCCUMBER.) from Fremont Co., Iowa. I have found one of Helen's sisters in the area also. Sarah Jane FREDERICKSON marries a Joesph STRINGER( probably in Yankton South Dakota). Eliza remarries for the third time (I think) because I find her with a new husband in the 1880 census. He is George HENDERSON.
Would like to hear from anyone with any connection to ANY of these families.
