The St Igance library has those newspapers on micro film and i heard now they have them on their computers. Since you have the exact dated it should be easy to find an announcement if there is one. Back then the St Ignace papres didn't have an obit. You just had to look through the paper page by page. Sometimes when it was someone of importance it'll be on the front page. If not then it's be in the paper where they have reports from different little township reports usually written by someone from those communities.
