I am looking for information on Martin and Jerry Dodge who both died on Dec 3 1949, and are buried in Griffith Twp, at the Our Lady of Holy Rosary Cemetery. These young boys were just 6 and 4 years old. There is a Thomas Dodge on the tombstone. His dates are born 1911, died 1960. Is he the father. Is his father Gabriel Dodge?
There is a story in my family that a Doretta Phillips married a Thomas Dodge and the two of their children drowned when they tried to cross the ice at Camel Chute. It was belived one of the parents died but I can't find any death record for the mother.
What would be the closest newspaper to Griffith in 1949? Is it microfilmed ? where can I get a copy?
