    Can anyone tell me where I can find Carolyn Huffnagle-Marks, wife of clergyman Bruce Marks, who drowned in the 1960s on the Rosebud Reservation, rescuing a child. Thank you,

    I understand that Martin Brokenleg’s family may know.

      Thank you for responding. I have just learned that Carolyn, under the name of Carolyna Huffnagle Marks moved to Berkley, California and is the founder and promoter of the World Peace Wall project. Her work and obituary are online. She died in 2011.


      1. Aaron Baker Clark 27 Jan 1855 to 18 May 1933 is buried in Trinity Cemetery Mission. In my genealogy research over the years I’ve seen his name officiating many baptisms, confirmations, burials, and marriages.


  2. I am researching an artifact that I have, it is a brown leather bound book inlayed with the initials A.B. Clark using porcupine quills. Service Book of Common Prayer published 1900. English and Dakota


  3. Any luck on finding more about Rev A.B. Clark? I love history, my Great Grandfather Edward Howe was a Episcopalian Minister in Niobrara for many years. I found a weekly journal of sorts that he kept for about four years in then 20’s. when people died, mostly children it seems, baptisms and their donations, a box of coal for the stove, or some eggs, collects 10cents etc. I donated it to the Ponca tribe of Nebraska and their museum in Niobrara many years ago. Thank you for your time.

    My Grandmother Lucile West, was born in Gregory South Dakota in 1912. She always said she was raised on a Indian reservation in ND. After researching her marriage certificate and seeing she was born in Gregory SD, I believe it could be Red Bud. I believe her Father Lewis West and her Mother Lucile West may have been missionaries on Red Bud. Not sure if you can help me with any information but it would be great if you could.


    1. Dear Mr. Myers: Please send me this information via email at MereLaurenS@gmail.com. I can look in our records. At the time your grandparents lived here, Gregory was still part of the Rosebud Indian Reservation. If you could provide me with some information on Lewis and Lucille West, I can try to check our records for them as well. I look forward to hearing from you! The Rev. Dr. Lauren R. Stanley, Superintending Presbyter, Rosebud Episcopal Mission (West)
