This is the obituary that was partially transcribed in issue 15 of Casefile Clues which was distributed to subscribers late last night. It appeared in the Mt. Olive, Illinois, newspaper in 1948.
Turns out there are several errors in this obituary which the article explains. It was a good thing that my research didn't begin with this obituary or I would have really had a brick wall.
