I am from out of state. I would like to obtain obituaries dated in the 1940's of family members for a family report. They lived in the Tuscola area as farmers.
George Frederick Kieser-date of death: June 7, 1944
William Kieser-date of death: March 25, 1947
Catharine Kieser-date of death: November 25, 1940
James E. Kieser-date of death: September 20, 1986
Edith Kieser-date of death: August 9, 1978
Some of these family members were buried in Villa Grove Cemetery and some in the Tuscola Township Cemetery. THeir mail address was Rural Route Tuscola, Illinois if that helps. Is there a District Library that would have these obits or a local holding to obtain them that I could write?
Looking forward to a response to help me get break my "Brick Wall" on these relatives.
