In regard to your posting on an ancestor named Seth Austin, I wonder if he might be related to another man by the same name I stumbled upon in southern South Dakota in the 1920s. The man I found is of an age (born about 1880) to be the grandson of your man. The Seth Austin who suddenly appears in our family tree was the sheriff of Bennett County, SD, in 1920 and was identified in the census that year as white, which I think is an error. In 1930 census he was living in the town of Martin (still in Bennett County), working as a laborer on the railroad, and was described racially as "mixed breed Sioux."
