Obit/Death Look-Up: FORD, MICHAEL, FICKES
Posted by: Linnea n (ID *****7158) Date: June 25, 2010 at 13:57:27

I am searching for the obituaries/death information for two sisters who lived in Coles County. Any information on them would be greatly appreciated.

Sarah Fickes FORD was born about 1809 in PA, and died after 1880 in Coles County, possibly in Trilla where she lived with her brother. I would like to get a death date/obituary for her if possible. She was married to Decatur Ford who died in 1866. He is buried at Dodge Grove Cemetery, but she is not listed on the cemetery index I have.

Catherine Fickes MICHAEL died 3 February 1901 in Mattoon. I would love to locate an obituary for her. She was married to Charles Michael.

Now a long shot- I would love to locate an obituary for their brother, John Fickes who died 16 Dec 1892 in Trilla. I've looked before, but with no luck. He is my ggg grandfather.

Thanks so much for any help!
