I am searching for the date of death for JOSEPH COVEY b. ca 1815 in New York state. He married Lorena Sanders in the town of Oshawa, Ontario in 1841. They moved to Omro, Winnebago County, WI in about 1870. The 1880 census lists Joseph’s occupation as a carpenter. Their children were Rhoda, Mary, Martha, Helen and Joseph. Although he is listed in the 1880 census, the 1900 census for Winnebago County shows Lorena living in the household of her daughter Martha (William Southern), meaning he probably died sometime during this 20 year span. A date of death will hopefully lead me to an obituary. Thanks for any help.
