Hello Alicia. I read your message regarding my Joseph W Long obit lookup. In the first minute of reading your response, the fist Joseph Long, 22yrs (as you noted), wouldn't fit my relative's age. The second one, no age listed, may or may not fit.
BUT!!!! I clicked onto the link you provided, not really paying attention to the newspaper's name (mostly because I couldn't pronounce it) and scanned through the index listings, just to look around. I came across a line for Joseph W Long and realized this was the same person you mentioned in your response to me. The age is really 41 (assuming you mistyped, but who cares!!) and that fits my relative perfectly!! Was very excited and thankful for your help. I now have firm proof of a death date.
I went a litte further and looked into your initial post regarding this Louisville Anzeiger to learn that it was a German newspaper. Hadn't given any thought to the origin of the Long last name. As I have very very little information on this family, your generous help gave more clues to their ancestry. A very bright spot in my day!
Really appreciate the help Alicia, you've given me more direction than just a death date.
