Veronica Fazendin Burkler was the first caucasian woman in Lake County SD. She was born in Swizerland and married Modest Joseph Burkler also from Swizerland. She and her husband and 3 year old daughter came from Stillwater, MN i a covered wagon and homesteaded around Badus lake in the late 1879's. Shortly after, 14 men came to homestead (without their families) and she cooked for them while they worked the fields and built sod houses. Her second daughter, Christina, was the first caucasian child born in Lake county. They helped build St. Ann's church and are buried in Ramona. Pictures of Veronica and Christina are in the Lake County courthouse. I have a great deal of additional info. Would like to know if anyone of these families still have branches. I have site at
