There are some Meier/Meyers on my family tree from this area also. See
WorldConnect at rootsweb.com
for more info. Also, there are lots of Ihdes in
the area that I know too. In addition my newphew is married to a Wille.
These are common names here.

Thank you so much for the address to Zion Lutheran in Clayton County.
really appreciate your taking the time to send it to me. Your great
grandfather probably knew my grandmother's relatives. It is my great
grandparents who are buried there. They were John Carl Meier and
Elisabeth Wille. He is buried under the name of Carl Meier and she is
buried under the name of Elizabeth Meier in Lot 59.
I have a map of Brule County, SD which shows Carl and Elizabeth lived
there in 1908 and then when they died they must have been taken back to
Zion Lutheran Cemetery for burial.
My grandmother had a sister, Lina who married Fritz Ihde, a sister,
Minnie, who married
Christian Schlie and a sister Bertha who married John Ihde in the early
1900's in Clayton and Allamakee Counties and did not move to Brule
Are those surnames familiar to you in that area?
