I am looking for the obituary of Ralph Owen, who died in 1930. There is also an article about his death in the Dunn County News because he was killed in a car crash with a stopped train at Menomonie Junction. I don't know the actual date of his death. I would like to see the article and his obituary.

Tammy, good general information for anyone researching Dunn county. Thank you for sharing.

Here's the URL for anyone interested in more information: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~widunn/dcgs.htm

(In the case of the OP, the desired obituary was returned in Stout's ARC newspaper index, so no need to pay money when the archivist at Stout will do it for free.)
