Well, they could be. Some obits and death notices gave quite a lot of info; then others were pretty scant. If you can get a death certificate, that might also give their birthplace, depending on who the death informant was and whether they knew the deceased well enough to know where they were born. Sometimes the informant was a neighbor and not a family member. One of my gg grandpas gave the name of his great grandpa as the name of his father's father. So sometimes, even family members didn't know the answers or in their grief, gave the wrong answers to the info requested. Ottawa Co. courthouse in Grand Haven charges $10 for a copy of the death certificate. I believe you have to have a name and death date to request one, as I don't think they will do a look up for it, but I may be wrong about that.
