My great grandmother Helen Agatha Crowley married Henry Adam Smith in Avoca Minnesota in 1903. Henry died May 10, 1926 and Helen married Joseph G. Smith May 3rd, 1939 and he died October 13th, 1944 in Brookings County South Dakota. I can find nothing on his parents or his method of death, except it may have been a sucicde. Any ideas or information would be greatly appriciated.

Hi,

You can order a copy of his death certificate from south Dakota Health Dept., http://doh/sd.gov/VitalRecords/genealogy.aspx. Hopefully the Informant knew where and when he was born and who his parents were. If they did, it will appear on his death certificate.

It appears that he might have been previously married according to the Smith Family Tree, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/23547168/person/1400390787.

Joseph G. Smith b. June 19, 1884 Storm lake, Buena Vista, Iowa. Married to Maria Mercedes Smith b. Adair, Iowa and died 29 April 1938.

Their Joseph G. Smith died 13 Oct 1944 in White, Brookings, South Dakota.

However, family trees have been known to be incorrect.

In 1930 in Oak Lake, Brookings, South Dakota there was a Joe G. Smith, wife Mary and several children living in Oak Lake.

The Brookings Area Genealogical Society, 515 Third St., Brookings, SD 57006 might have a copy of Joe's obituary. Successful Searching!
