A South Dakota board has proposed a name for a creek in Minnehaha County.
The Board on Geographic Names has unanimously recommended the name of Annie Anderson Creek for the geographic feature near Valley Springs.
A federal board received two proposed names for the creek and referred the matter to its state counterpart.
Annie Anderson lived on a farm west of Beaver Valley Church in the early 1900s. A flood washed away her 5-year-old son and her horse when she was riding a horse-drawn buggy on June 1914.
The state board is allowing the public to express concerns about the proposed name or to suggest another one. Written comments must be submitted by Sept. 15.
