In December 1987 Sally Binsfield of St. Cloud, MN sent the following query:
Last summer my sister stopped at Crazy Horse Mountain in South Dakota. A restaurant called "Laughing Water" displays this message on a sign.
"Laughing Water restaurant gets it's name from the bubbling brook named by the Indians, which has it's headquarters at the base of Crazy Horse Mt. and flowed beneath and thru Custer. During the decade of the 1930's the section of Laughing Water that runs thru the original Eller Homestead was a source of water for miles around". Does anyone know about this?
I wrote the Custer County Chamber of Commerce, who passed the letter to Ruth Ziolkowski, widow of Korczak Ziolkowski. Mrs. Ziolkowski wrote the attached letter in answer.
The 1880 census record of Custer County, South Dakota was incomplete and frustrating to work with. I found no Eller listed. At the end of the list was a message: Most of the men and boys are on cattle drives, or rounding up cattle. Traveled 100 miles today without contacting anyone. In some cases Nebraska and Wyoming census takers have already covered the area.
Evidently the census taker gave up on Custer County at that point. To date I have not followed up by searching the census of the area taken by Nebraska or Wyoming.
Is there a descendant of William Eller, who homesteaded in Custer County, South Dakota, out there???

Dear Mrs. Marshall:
In response to your letter of January 5, we have the following information about the Eller Homestead that might interest you.
William Eller came to the Custer, South Dakota area between 1877 and 1880 to work in a tin mine He homesteaded about five miles north of Custer on Laughing Water Creek. When Korczak Ziolkowski came to South Dakota in 1947, he purchased the old Eller ranch which is now within the confines of the Crazy Horse Memorial. Some of the original buildings remain in place here.
Laughing Water Restaurant, of course, is named for the Creek which flows by the Memorial.
Enclosed is a brochure about Crazy Horse Memorial. The Eller Ranch itself is located east and adjacent to the Memorial.
According to one local historian who is no longer living the Eller ranch is the second oldest building in the Custer area. The Eller ranch became the property of Ira Willey, now deceased, from whom Mr. Ziolkowski purchased it. A smaller piece of property adjacent to the ranch owned by Mr. Eller's nephews, the Forans, was also purchased by Mr. Ziolkowski.
(Mrs. korczak Ziolkowski)
P.S.: Your letter was given to me to answer by the Custer County Chamber of Commerce.

We appeal to all members to send names and addresses of prospective new members to Charlotte Eller Marshall. 60S S.E. Park Ave., Corvallis, OR 97333.
Prof. Dr. K. Napp-Zinn and Georg Eller of West Germany have placed an announcement in several German Genealogical Journals concerning the Association, The Eller Chronicles, and the Eller Family Conference. This assistance to the Eller Family Association is gratefully acknowledged. The Eller name is much more common in Germany than in the U.S. and we may be close to establishing communication with a great many more members of the Eller families of West Germany. It is only a matter of time and continued effort before we find the connections between early Eller immigrants to the U.S. and their kinsmen in Germany.

|A. William Eller|
Vernard and Phyllis came up with the excellent idea of husband and wife team acting as director. This follows the example of Gerald and Juanita as co-editors of the newsletter.
Byron is compiling a file of all Ellers who served in the Civil War. This file will include name, rank, unit, state and county, whether Union or Confederate. Such a file will serve our members, and will be of great genealogical value in a very short time.
Byron will organize this information by state and begin publishing in the near future. He plans to feature a report on an individual soldier, along with names of other soldiers, perhaps from the same state or county in future issues.
Be sure your ancestor is included! Send your information (along with copies of any records) to:
