Hi, I'm also looking for one particular obit mentioned in the Marlette Leader index. Both emails for Amy are not working. I'd simply like to know the contents of the obit for Mrs. Billington, d. 12 Feb 1899.

Is there someone out there who can help?

First I apologize for my emails not working, I no longer use them cause they were hacked. I also took a break from researching to deal with health and personal issues. I see that someone found the two Hollenbeck obits for you already but if you still need the other two please let me know. Feel free to email me at
