Maybe you could steer me in the right direction. My gggrandfather Andrew Jennings, died July 27 1871 in Dallas or Tarrant Co Texas. It is a mystery to my family as to what happened to him or why he died. His widow, Delpha Smith Jennings left shortly thereafter and moved back eventually to Gentry Co. Missouri where her older children and family were. What Newpaper should I look at? I do not have a clue what older newspaper might have his obit . I assume there would have been something to tell "why" or from "what" he died. He was only 40 and reported to be a strong man. Would you have any advise on the name of an old newpaper that might have this information? Thanks. I will try to find microfilm of that newspaper here in Missouri if possible. Thanks alot!!
