Just north of the Pennington-Meade County line in Meade County is the Elk Vale Cemetary. It is about 10-12 miles north east of Rapid City. Back in the late 1950s when I was a teenager, my father Merle Young would take me with him to mow and clean the weeds from several of the graves. These graves are of the Morehouse Family and include the graves of Smith A. (1833 to 1914) and Alice S. Morehouse(1834 to 1931).

We were just at these sites today trying to put together are heritage there.

the Youngs, Morehouses, Wollensacks, Bills, Barents, Johnson, tie together. Please contact me.

Nodaway County, Missouri History of 1882, [page 622]

S.A. Morehouse, farmer and stock raiser, section 16, post office Hopkins, was born in Morrow County, Ohio, December 12, 1833. He was reared at his birthplace, spending his boyhood days on a farm and receiving an education in the schools of the neighborhood. He also worked some at the carpenter's trade. Coming west in 1858, he settled in Nodaway County, and has since been identified with the growth and prosperity of this county. During the war he served in the Enrolled Missouri Militia. Mr M. has devoted his attention chiefly to agricultural pursuits, and now owns a fine farm of 100 acres, well improved. He has filled most all of the township offices. He is a member of Xenia Lodge No 50, A.F. and A.M. of Hopkins, and stands among the leading citizens of the county. Mr M. was married December 31, 1853, to Miss Alice Wood, an estimable lady. She was born in Erie County, New York, January 17, 1834. They have had six children, five of whom are now living--Edward, Madora, (now Mrs Wesley Gray,) Nelson, Frank and Marlo.
