Wilbert - need obit, have dates

Wilbert - need obit, have dates

Classification: Query
I am researching the Joseph Wilbert family. Joseph was born in Fond du Lac and married Harriet Dewitt Winchell in 1907 in Oshkosh. According to what I have found so far, they had 2 children: Joseph P (b 1908) and Mary/Marie (b 1912) who probably married Harold Johnson about 1930. Harriet had a child, Rosa/Rosella (b 1903) from a first marriage to James Winchell. Rosa was living with Joseph & Harriet in 1910 and was in the "WI Home of Feeble Minded" in Chippewa County.

Would someone please find 3 obits for me? They are in the Oshkosh Daily Northwestern.

Harriet's may be found on the Find A Grave site #106506880
James Winchell as #106510542; note: his notices do not give a place of interment so I assume was kin to Harriet and placed in same cemetery. He does not appear on the list of Riverside Cemetery burials.
The notice from 1950 is not available by newspaper sites. You can obtain one from the Oshkosh Public Library site for $5.00.
They make it real easy, you click by the notice you want and it prints out so all you have to do is insert your name etc.

I hope this helps.
