I was told many years ago that my great great grandfather, Fred L. Roos, committed suicide at the Peck Building on the corner of S. Burdick and E. South St. in Kalamazoo during the year of the stock market crash. From the family Bible, his death date says April 1, 1924. The crash was in 1927, perhaps I read the year wrong? He was born in 1865 somewhere in NY.
Am trying to find a newspaper story or obituary on him. Have searched the Kalamazoo Gazette Newspaper index online and used different spellings of his name, but to no avail. His wife, Catherine E. Roos, is listed in the Gazette as having an obituary from the Schoolcraft Express. She died in December of 1943. I do not have her obit either.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
