WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
ALL DATA IS ADDED TO THE SITE AS WE COME ACROSS IT, SO IF IT IS NOT HERE, WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO IT.

Prairie County was created by the Montana Legislature in 1915 out of parts of Custer, Dawson, and Fallon Counties. The name was selected in a contest and reflects the predominant landscape of the region.

The county seat and largest community is Terry.
Other Communities are
* Fallon (CDP)
and
* Saugus * Shirley * Zero


The county was the site of the Custer Creek train wreck in 1938 that killed 47 people and injured an additional 75.

We're looking to add the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between - in short, the data you used to build your family tree (rather than the tree itself since we don't have the space or manpower to accept gedcoms and trees)
