Surnames: Grant, Shaw
I'm looking for information on my great-great-grandmother's sister Ellen Shaw Grant and her husband Alexander Grant. Ellen was born in Cresco, Iowa around 1867 and Alexander Grant was born in Scotland around 1857. They were married in Cresco, Iowa on March 17, 1887. They had seven children:
Helen "Nellie" (born abt 1888)married Robert B Brown
Dorothea (born abt 1889)
John (1892-)
Elizabeth (born abt 1894)
Matthew (1897-1974)
Catherine (1906-1987)
Jessie (1908-1994)married Orville Raymond Henning

Ellen is last seen in the 1940 census living in Janesville, Wisconsin and her husband Alexander is last in the 1930 census, also in Janesville. I'm looking for death dates, obituaries and places of burial.

Thanks so much for your help!
Tyler Simpson
