We have a bit of a mystery in our family, we have an eldest son of Adam William Baker and Elizabeth Speaker Baker George W ran away or left home at the age of 18 years. He wasn't heard from again, even though his father and brothers searched for years for him. Then he died some where from Jan to March 1923 as a lawyer contacted the Postmaster in Middlepoint Van Wert Co., Ohio to see if he had any living relatives. This we know for a fact as we have found the newspaper articles. He died in Omaha NE and we found him just once on a 1900 Federal Census living in what was called South Omaha. He was born 14 May 1854 or 1853 in Van Wert Co., OH. to the above named parents
Does anyone know which Funeral home might have information on him? Also how to get probate records for him? Does any one do volunteer look ups for deaths for 1923 that could tell us when he died so we would have more to go on?
Would be very appreciative of any and all help, thank you ahead for the time spent helping us.
