WPA? Famous obituary Look up Aug 3, 1889 Toledo, Ohio McCRURY-McCREERY
Posted by: Kurt McCrary (ID *****6608) Date: April 09, 2008 at 09:41:42

From what I understand a project of the WPA (Works Progress Admin.) during the depression was to make a listing of everyone who died in Lucas County listed in newspapers since 1818.I was wondering if there is anyone that can do a look up for an obituary in about Aug 3, 1889 Toledo, Ohio for McCRURY-McCREERY

I am looking for the obituary for the wife of famous REV. Joseph McCREERY

We also found out "Sidney MCCRURY as listed in the Lucas County death records index in volume 2, page 139. The deaths are single line entries on facing pages. I haven't actually seen the record but from what I understand, The problem is that when the pages were copied the line on the left page doesn't line up with the line on the right page. So they will have to be viewed. At this point The only info we are reasonably sure of is from the left page: McCrury Sidney/ 3 Aug 1889/ Toledo, Ohio/ married We understand the Probate Court has the original records. I suppose they contain the place of burial as well?

Any information is appreciated.

Thank You
Kurt
