i have been trying to establish parents for john w. grimes the husband of mary m. surface - the father of my ggg granfather virgil markwood grimes . i have long thought him to be the son of geo grimes and mary surface - but have never found solid proof . i found a john w. grimes listed as having died on 28 jan 1897 in the wpa records at the indiana state library . i wroyte cass county health dept and got his death certificate which says he died at longcliff the state mental hospital . i also wrote the cass county public library and they were kind and sent his obit which says he died on toledo street at home - both agree that a john grimes died on that day and that he died of asthma - his death certificate says t.b. as well - his son was reported as having said " he was out chopping wood and his lungs gave out " - either way all sources agree he was taken to pleasent lawn - now mount hope cemetery . i wrote mt hope and diana hileman was most kind in sending along some info which follows :
