My cousin requested information about the KENOBBIE - CLELAND family, so I thought I'd post what I found. I've added information from USGenWeb & SSDI [in brackets] to the information from Lyman Co., 1930:

KENOBBIE, Andres, b. ca. 1884 [perhaps the "Andros Casper" who registered for WW I, along with Fredk. Martin & John G. He might also be "Andy" in the phone book for 1925, which also had F. M. & John.]
Mary, 1893 [3 Jan. 1893 - Mar. 1979, last res. Reliance, per SSDI]
Marguarite, 1912
Albert, 1914 [Albert "Buck," Ralph, & Roy had phones in 1951.]
Clarence, 1916 [7 Jan. 1916 - 19 F 2001, Oacoma; vet of WW II]
Myrtle, 1918
Marie, 1919
Irene, 1920
Roy, 1923 [22 Jan. 1923 - 16 S 2000, lr Reliance; vet of WW II]
Ruby, 1926
Robert, 1929.

CLELAND, Walter, b. ca. 1890
Cathryn, 1892 [Kathryn W. (31 July 1891 - 19 Je. 1969), lr Oacoma]
Ollie, 1913
Clifford C. [19 Oct. 1913 - Aug. 1969]
Hazel G., 1916
Florence, 1921
Everet L., 1923 [Everette (14 D 1922 - Je. 1982), lr Aberdeen, SD]
Dale, 1925 [vet of WW II].

Early Settlers of Lyman County: Andrew KENOBBIE hitchhiked from Wisconsin to Chamberlain and walked across the pontoon bridge to Oacoma in 1900. He homesteaded ten miles northeast of Reliance on Section 14. He married Mary KRAUSE.

Fred KENOBBIE bought a lot in Presho, 9 N 1905, and built and owned a general store with Ed KENZY & Gene MARTIN. Fred & Mable KENOBBIE lived in the back of the store. Their first child was born in Oacoma and died of diphtheria. Their second child Edward "Buster" KENOBBIE was the first child born in Presho, 3 Apr. 1906. They had nine more children. The store had an outside stairway to the second story where dances and other gatherings were held. The store was also a trading post for the Indians, as Fred could speak their language. The book has a photo of the "General Merchandise" store, which burned down in the 1950's.

Alfred and Alta KENOBBIE m. 12 Apr. 1928 and operated a hotel and cafe until 1941, when they returned to the family farm. Their children were Patricia, John, and Mary, about whom the book includes more information.

Mr. & Mrs. Roy KENOBBIE lived on the former Paulson farm north of Oacoma. John KENOBBIE was mentioned as a neighbor by Hazel [SHOEMAKER] NORTON.

My cousin is looking for the ancestry of the above families and for the descendants of Albert KENOBBIE & Hazel CLELAND. Barbara SPECK put us into contact with Diane RAMEY. Are there any other researchers?
