Obituary for Sophia Schweder, d. 16 Oct 1923 Hope Township, Barry County
Posted by: Jonathan Durr (ID *****5005) Date: December 03, 2007 at 09:34:09

I am seeking an obituary for my great-great-great grandmother Sophia Schweder who died on 16 Oct 1923 (although her tombstone says 6 Oct 1923). She was born on 10 Aug 1830 in Germany. I have obtained her death certificate from the Barry County Clerk, but I am seeking more information that often appears in obituaries, such as the full names of her parents and where she was born in Germany (Her death certificate is not a good source of this, her father's first name is unreadable, although her maiden name is "Priemer")

Does anyone know what newspaper covered Barry County in the 1920s and would anyone have access to indexes and/or microfilms of the local paper from around this date in 1923?

Thank you for any help
