Francis B. McNamara d. 23 Apr 1885 buried Ft. Thomas KY

When searching online for KY death records, I found this listing:

Francis B. McNamara d. 23 Apr 1885, buried in Ft. Thomas, Campbell Co KY

Can someone help identify the cemetery in which he is interred? I believe he may be my great-grandfather!!

Is there any way I can determine how he died? I don't know if death certificates were done in 1885. Could there be a newspaper article about his death?

According to family lore, my grandfather John McNamara was born in 1883. His father, Frank (Francis?) McNamara was shot and killed on the courthouse steps when John was about two years old. The above death record MAY be John's father.

If anyone can help me gather additional information on this man's death, I would appreciate it very much. I need to know which cemetery he is buried in, any information on his death -- especially if he died as a result from a gunshot!

Thank you. Barbara McNamara
