I don't know if there is a My Scholten family or parts of it passed through South Dakota but I am unsure of where they lived exactly. I have a post card dated 1906 to E.J. SCHOLTEN. This man was born 1855 in Zutphen Gelderland, moved to Orange City IA, then skipped across the upper mid-west (MN, SD, etc) to end up in Lynden Washington. Prominent Family given names are: Evert, Lambert, Jan/John, Aaltje/Alice,Johanna, Gert/Geertruida.
