I am needing a look up.
His name was Jacob/Jake Werner/Warner. he died on Dec 1, either 1875 or 1879, after being runover by a train. I am hoping to put some things my great grandfather wrote back in the 1930's about his father's family into perspective and document some of it.
I am searching for either a death record to go with his headstone that is no longer readable at the Nevada Cemetery, or a copy of the newspaper article that I believe would have covered the event, and perhaps even his obituary.
Nevada Cemetery has three Werner headstones. One is "father" Jacob Werner and "wife" Werner...but I do not know if the wife is first wife Lydia Jane Williams or second wife, Barbara. and then the headstone for Jake/Jacob (train accident)Werner.
Thank you for what ever assistance you can give in this effort. I can be contacted directly at MQuiltr2@aol.com
