Settlers from London, Ontario, Canada

Classification: Query
Surnames: McNAMES, PERKINS
About 1888 some settlers arrived in Edmunds County from the city of London and neighboring Westminster Township, in Ontario, Canada. One of these families were the McNames - Harriet McNames, wife of John McNames, died in Cortlandt 14 Feb. 1888. Her obituary appeared in a London newspaper. A London newspaper also gave a residence of one of the McNames' Canadian neighbors, Mrs. Melinda Perkins, giving the date of settlement as 1888. Mrs. Perkins was well up in years and possibly lived with a son or daughter.

I am very new to researching in South Dakota. Does anyone know of any local resources that could help me? I am trying to locate the death and burial place of John McNames and Melinda Perkins. Is there a local history that would tell about these Canadian settlers?

Thank you so much for any tips, advice or assistance.
