There were few settlers in Dakota in 1873, so Greenberry HAGGIN might have been buried on a farm. Have you tried to find the WPA records for Yankton county? Those are at the State Historical Library in Pierre, SD. Librarians might be able to help you zero in on the right area from the Homestead locations. Richard HAGGIN patented in Apr. 1873, Twp. 93 - 54, in Section 32; James A. HAGGIN patented in Jan. 1875, in Sections 33 & 34. Those are in Gayville Township, but not in Gayville town. They would have been farther south near the river.

I found this information online. John B. HAGGIN (10 Dec. 1817, Jessamine Co., KY [some censuses say b. IN] - 2 Aug. 1901, Iowa) m. 11 Apr. 1844, Coles Co., IL, Emily J. WALTON (17 Aug. 1825, OH - 28 Sep. 1908), dau/o Nancy CAMPBELL & Geo. Lewis WALTON, b. ca. 1790, VA. Children:
