Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Spearfish) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Spearfish. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from SpearfishOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Spearfish. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.4889, Longitude: -103.8477       In this case, the coordinates for Spearfish have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<4>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
