The Ireton (Iowa) Historical Society is compiling a series of "Memory Albums" honoring all veterans with Ireton-area connections.
I have a military photo of Elder L. Ferguson (born August 15, 1908 in Washington Township, Sioux County, Iowa) that was at our local American Legion post. His grandparents (Marshall & Polly Elder) homesteaded here.
I would like a copy of his obituary to place in our "Memory Album" or if an obit is not available, a biography (especially about his life after the service). Elder died June 7, 1972 -- according to the Social Security Database, his last residence was in Eagle Butte, Dewey County, South Dakota. He is buried in the Black Hills National Cemetery in Sturgis.
Can anyone supply a copy of his obituary or give me an idea of where I could locate one?
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
