Good morning Joe. Alicia forwarded your obit listing link to me and I was rewarded with a firm death date for a family member. Many thanks to both of you from across the miles for helping me to break through that brick wall of frustration!!
I'd like to toss a question out to you, looking for an opinion. The relative of interest is Joseph W Long. He is noted in your index as having passed away on June 26, 1862, age 41. One line of family lore states that Joseph was a Confederate soldier taken prisoner. He supposedly died while being transferred from one boat to another. (don't ask me what one boat to another means. that's the line written in a family genealogy). I have found no record of Joseph W Long being a soldier in the war. I do know he and his brother ran a steamboat operation in Louisville. ( I personally think he was not enlisted and died while working his buisness). In your experience with compiling this obit list from the Anzeiger, were Civil War deaths noted? Do you think if Jos was really a soldier, there would've been an obit in the smaller local German newspaper as opposed to the larger English language Louisville paper?
thanks for any suggestions and again, thank you for your work on your project. Made my day to have an answer (now I have to get a copy of this obit).
