Searching for parents of George Beers b. 1882 NY d. 1943 SD

+3 votes
Searching for the parents names of George Beers, 7-18-1882 to 5-19-1943.  Born in NY.  Acquired marriage license in MN in 1907, listed on census 1920 in SD.  Buried in Martinus Cemetery, Yankton, SD.     Picture of gravestone is all thats been found.

Added 5/1/14.  Still searching for George Beers , with actual birth date of 7-18-1882.

It is possible that his name was changed from Beers but with the large number of Beers in the Eastern US, I think it still was Beers.   Problem maybe was that he left home at an early age, and sounded like he never mentioned home to anyone.  Grandchildren say no one talked about it.  Still convinced there is a document out there somewhere listing parents.  

Thank you for your answer.
