He was a native of the province of Ontario, Canada; having been born on the banks of the St. Clair River, a few miles from the city of Detroit, Michigan, on the February 16, 1851. At Carroll, Montana, they found a steamboat, on which they took passage to Bismarck (Bismarck, North Dakota), from which point Aaron and his party came through with ox teams to the Black Hills, arriving in Deadwood (Deadwood, South Dakota) in October, 1876, and having managed to avoid attack from the Indians while en route. He passed a month in mining in Deadwood Gulch and then joined the stampede to Wolf Mountain, but the prospects there turned out a failure and he returned in a few weeks to Deadwood. Early years Parker was born in Lead City (Lead, South Dakota) but raised in Deadwood, South Dakota. Like many Midwesterners, the Parker family migrated to Los Angeles, California in 1922 for better opportunities, when the city was advertised as the "white (White American) spot of America" during that period. Parker originally wanted to be an attorney, but later decided to join the Los Angeles Police Department on August 8, 1927. He served as an LAPD officer for 15 years before taking a leave to fight in World War II. He received a Purple Heart after being wounded during the Normandy invasion (Normandy landings), and an Italian Star. As soon as he returned home he was re-assigned to basic patrol status with the LAPD. DATE OF BIRTH June 21, 1905 PLACE OF BIRTH Deadwood (Deadwood, South Dakota), South Dakota, USA DATE OF DEATH July 16, 1966 Route details The tracks ridden by FEVR trains were laid in 1869-71 by the Fremont, Elkhorn and Missouri Valley Railroad (FE&MV); it is one of the oldest sections of existing railroad track in the state of Nebraska. In its general north-south route, the tracks cross the 1848 Mormon Trail on its way west to Salt Lake City, Utah. The FE&MV was acquired by the Chicago and North Western Railway in 1903 and became a gateway to Chadron (Chadron, Nebraska) in northwest Nebraska, where the tracks then lead north to Deadwood (Deadwood, South Dakota) and Rapid City (Rapid City, South Dakota), South Dakota, then on to Colony (Colony, Wyoming), Wyoming. From Chadron, the tracks leading west terminate in Lander, Wyoming. In 1984, the section of track FEVR uses was abandoned by the CNW which was acquired by FEVR in 1985. By 1986, excursion operations were inaugurated by Steam Locomotive #1702. Personal Hillard was born in Deadwood, South Dakota, August 14, 1936 to Edward Rykema and Vernell Peterson; she was one of three daughters born to them. She graduated from the University of Arizona in 1957 with an undergraduate degree. She subsequently earned a master's degree in education from South Dakota State University in 1982 and then a master's degree in political science at the University of South Dakota in 1984. General Crook’s force continued the pursuit but soon began running short of supplies. The general ordered his men to go on half rations. Soon, many of the men resorted to eating mule and horseflesh. A column under Capt. Anson Mills was dispatched to Deadwood (Deadwood, South Dakota), a Black Hills mining town, to find supplies, and en route stumbled onto the Miniconjou Sioux village of American Horse (American Horse (elder)). Later in the year, however, Wolff's billing dramatically increased to co-lead status in his next two Corman productions, scripted by Charles B. Griffith, ''Beast from Haunted Cave'' and ''Ski Troop Attack''. Shot back-to-back in the snowy wilderness outside Deadwood, South Dakota, the films used the same crew and cast, which, in addition to Wolff, included Michael Forest, Wally Campo, Richard Sinatra (Frank (Frank Sinatra)'s nephew) and Sheila Carol. The first of the two, ''Beast'', directed for Corman by Wolff's UCLA friend, Monte Hellman, remains a well-remembered low-budget horror title, with a spider-like creature menacing a trio of robbers, led by Wolff, trapped in a ski lodge. In contrast, the equally poverty-budgeted ''Attack'', on which Corman himself took over the directorial reins, turned out to be a little-noticed World War II quickie in which a quartet of GI (GI (military))s on skis slog through a snowbound landscape. The group's leader, a tall, stalwart lieutenant (Michael Forest), who played a similarly characterized forest ranger in ''Beast'', is continually challenged by the disdainful sergeant (Wolff). ''Beast'' was first shown in October 1959, but eventually paired on a double bill with ''The Wasp Woman'' which, in line with the other films' Dakota (The Dakotas) link, premiered in Bismarck, North Dakota on February 12, 1960. The previous month, Wolff was seen in three TV appearances, ''The Untouchables (The Untouchables (1959 TV series))'' (January 7), ''The Lawless Years'' (January 19) and ''Rawhide (Rawhide (TV series))'' (January 29). He also had the third-billed role of Baron, a nightclub owner who refuses to give another chance to alcoholic trumpet player Jack Klugman in ''The Twilight Zone (The Twilight Zone (1959 TV series))'' episode "A Passage for Trumpet", broadcast on May 20.
