Also see . . .  Society of Black Hills Pioneers. The Society began in 1889 because the prospectors felt an exclusive bond and wanted the world to remember they were the first. Membership qualification is that you must have had an ancestor, who was in the Black Hills prior to or at the time of the first federal census taken in June, 1880. The Black Hills area includes the counties of Lawrence, Meade, Butte, Pennington, Custer and Fall River in Dakota Territory and Crook or Weston counties in Wyoming Territory.
