Does anyone have information about Homer F. Gaskill after 1940? The census that year shows him renting a house on Franklin Rd, Bloomfield Township, Michigan, with his wife Elizabeth Wise. I am particularly interested in his death date and finding an obituary.
Homer was born in 1875 in Hastings, Michigan. His first wife was Mattie May Slawson, and they had a daughter, Bernice Naomi Gaskill. Bernice was born in 1898 and died in 1910. Mattie was institutionalized in the Michigan Asylum for the Insane in Kalamazoo, probably around 1906. Homer then married Elizabeth in 1909; they had a son and one adopted daughter. Homer was the first police chief in Birmingham, from 1919 - 1926.
