Carolyn,

I just saw this message of yours from a while ago. If you go to the government website Chronicling America at http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/, choose their advanced search. Put in "Dennis Connell" in "with the phrase" (meaning the exact phrase/quotation marks not necessary) and 1898 for both from and to years. You'll get four hits, and three of them have to do with Dennis's sudden death. If you use the phrase "D. Connell," there is another mention about his company in an article from March 18th. You're actually fortunate that there is much of anything about his death in the newspapers, and that was because he was a prominent businessman. Most folks got a short death notice. You won't learn anything about his family though, certainly not about his parents. The best article about him just says he left a wife and children, that's all, and one other named his wife Katie. I've read many obituaries, and this was very typical.
