I'm currently researching a person by the name of Israel BUTTS who was born in OH 1844-1847 (have no exact date) but had reportedly died in Fergus Falls, Otter Tail Co., MN on 6/28/1928. Israel is shown in the 1910 MN federal census, living in Sago, Itasca Co., MN with wife, Lucinda and adult son, Thomas.
I'd be interested in learning if there was an obit or a known cemetery location where he may have been buried.
The death record info is : State file & Cert. # 011208, year 1928, record # 513139. Hope this is of some help.
Is there any other MN information related to Lulcinda or Thomas? I could find none of them in the 1920 census . . .
On the LDS website the death information includes the names of the parents of Israel as being John BUTTS and Ellen FUNK. I have conflicting information related to the surname of the mother of Israel and realize the data given for the death certificate usually comes from another family member . . . really need to sort this out!!!
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!
