J.C. Wilhelm killed in Miles City, Montana

Hi All,

I am looking for some information. I have a very brief newspaper article regarding a relative and was hoping someone could see if they could find out more.

All the snippit says is "Information is wanted of the relatives of J.C. Wilhelm who was killed at Miles City, Montana, September 7, 1886."

J.C. is John C. WILHELM son of Charles L. Wilhelm and Sarah Jane Painter. He was born in 1863 in Stark County, Ohio. I had originally sent the request in because this snippit was listed in the Obituary index for Stark County and was surprised that all that came was what I typed above.

Also, the snippit was printed in the Canton (Ohio) Repository newspaper 3 September 1887 near a year AFTER his death. I'm under the assumption that the family didn't find out about his death until that time either that or they knew and had been in search of details for an entire year.

If anyone does research in Montana and can locate an actual obituary for J.C. Wilhelm I would greatly appreciate it, even if it is an article detailing how or why he was killed there, I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,
