I am looking for anyone in Douglas County related to Joseph and Isabelle Bolshaw who lived there for some years. A son Thomas was in the 1st WW from Lancaster County, a son Samuel also lived in Lancaster County, a daughter Eva married Alfred O Peterson from Normay who was a DR, they had two sons Ward 15 in 1920 and Richard 9yrs 11 mon in 1920. It think they probably died and are buried in Douglas County. My real interest is a daughter named Amy Helen Dorthea, born in England in 1868, she left home young and came to South Dakota and became a rather infamous Madam in DEadwood and Rapid City, she died here in 1934 and is buried in Mt Moriah Cemetery in Deadwood, she was Dora DuFran for many years. Many holes in her story I hope to find someone who knows answers but will settle for exchange of information on Bolshaw or children of Alfred and Eva Peterson.
