Earl W. Halstead is my Grandfather born in 1919 Brookings. He married Velma Lorraine Graham ABT 1940. I need information on the Halsteads. Earls parents are, William O. Halstead born in Iowa and Laura Smith (Halstead) born in Illinois. Need information on siblings of Earl as well. I believe the names are Henry, Alice, Earl and Amy. Henry married Helen. Helens daughter Phyllis married Richard King who still lives in Brookings. Amy married Herb Denotter. Please e-mail with more information.

I just started looking at my family tree and was very surprised at how little my Dad knew of our lineage. He did say his mother was Maude Halstead born in 1902 in Iowa. Died 1933 in Brookings South Dakota. My dad Wendell Heim took me to the Kings (Richard and Phyllis) when I was young and I know he has visited them off and on over the years. I know Amy Denotter and really liked Herb. I was saddened to hear of his death. Like I said, I have very little information about my Dads lineage and anything you could provide would really be a help.
