  • Notes  Married:
    • James was always a kind and loving husband and father. He was loved and respected by all who knew him. He came to S. Dak. in 1909 and filed a claim near the town of Strool. At an early age he joined the Methodist Church in Wisconsin, then later joined the Congregational Church at Pasque, S. Dak. He had been a patient suffer of rheumatism for many years which caused his death. Mother (Gracia) tells that he died of exhaustion after taking a death message to family five miles away in a storm and they didn't ask him in to rest so he had to walk the five miles back.. which actually caused his death.
      The Wanless family lived in a sod house east of Strool (Prairie City) Typical sod house for the area, it was plastered with sand on the inside. Kenneth was born here with the aid of a mid-wife. A point of interest was that the Christmas tree was a tumble weed or a cactus. --Notes from Eunice Jacobson
