Would like help for an obituary:

Hi,

I would like to find an obituary for:

King Lusk died Sept 13, 1957 in Byron, Illinois but was a resident and had family in Janesville, Rock County, WI.

I do have the obit from Byron, Illinois but there really isn't any information in it. Hoping because family lived in Janesville, that this would be more descriptive.

Any suggestions or advice as to how I may find this obituary is greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much,
Glen
