Looking for death / burial info for John F. Waag. He first lived in Fond du Lac and then in Oshkosh, WI. The 1891 city directory lists him at 207 Scott, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA (lab).
John F. Waag died between 1891 and 1900, most likely in Oshkosh. His wife Mary, maiden name Houlahan is listed in the 1900 census in Chicago IL as widowed.
Any input is most welcome!

Good morning Andreas, I was able to find a small obit for John. Not much info though. He died May 12, 1895, per obit. I couldn't find a death record. Wisconsin didn't require a civil death record until 1907. His wife died circa February 18, 1911 in Chicago, per her obit. I couldn't find her in the Illinois death index online, but it is not complete yet. She is buried in Riverside cemetery in Oshkosh. John is most likely buried there too. Her children are mentioned in the obit. Hope this helps. Ruth Pokorny.
