Obit lookup for GGreat Grandfather, died 1942 in Brownsville

I am searching for any info on my GGreat Grandfather, Edward Hubbard Silliman, b. 1 Nov 1859 in Ohio, and died in Mercy Hospital, Brownsville on 13 Jan 1942. Family stories don't include any many details about why he was in Texas, other than that he may have been incarcerated for stealing luggage at a train station. Sadly, he abandoned my GGreat Grandmother and her 4 children... and so my Grandmother never spoke of him to my father... and the sad truths have gone to the graves of my relatives.

Thank you for any help!
