Mathias & Maria (Uhrmann) Ritzinger published death notices and a public thanks (Danksagung) in Milwaukee's German papers for their infant son Clarence Friedrich (1 yr old). Many years later, Mathias' death notices were published in these papers. This information is collected in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
It may be a fine line for some, but the German-American papers publish memorials to the deceased. The English language papers publish information.
