Death of Samuel Workman in Brownsville around 1900

I have been looking for information on Samuel Workman, Sr. He was born in Pennsylvania around 1820 to Benjamin Workman and Susanna Workman. Samuel married Elizabeth Miller from PA and moved to Livingston, IL around 1860 and then to Nebraska about 1872.

I just received the death certificate from the Vital Statistics office in Lincoln, for Elizabeth Workman born 6/3/1833 in PA. She died on 3/1/1921 in Beatrice, NE. They did not have a death certificate for Samuel which means he must have died before 1905. I do not have his exact date of birth or death. I have corresponded with the Historical Society of Beatrice and they informed me his body in casket was moved to Beatrice and was buried next to Elizabeth's on 10/05/1922 in Evergreen Home Cemetary. There are no markers on his grave.

Does someone know if there is an obituary section of the Brownsville newspaper from 1890- 1905 that I could check or perhaps write to the Nemaha Historical Society for copies of the obituary. I am looking for any information on the death of Samuel Sr.

Their children were Daniel, Sarah Roders, George, John, Mary, Sam Jr., Jacob, Elizabeth and Henry.

If someone can point me in the right direction I would very appreciative. Please email me at
