If anyone is in need of an obituary lookup in the Omaha World Herald, let me know. Exact or approximate dates preferred.

Surnames: Gardner, Lucas
Part of my family moved from PA to Fayette County, IA then on to Mills County, I. I just recently found the whole outfit in Omaha working at different kinds of jobs. Following is some of them.

Father = William H Gardner b:Abt 1816 in PA,
Mother = Isabella R Lucas Gardner b:Abt 1920 in PA,

Son = William Gardner b:Sep 1846 in PA
d: 1911 in IA or NB,

Daughter = Myrtle E Gardner b:Abt 1854 in PA,

Son = Samuel A Gardner b:Aug 1855 In PA,

Son = Wilson Gardner b:1866 in IA.

There were also a son who was buried in Mills County and a daughter who is buried in Council Bluffs.

Some of these folks showed up in a city directory in the early 1900s.

Thanks for any help you may be able to give.

The following link seems to list some of your relatives: http://omahaobits.wordpress.com/ga-gn/. I'll go to the library sometime this week to get the obits for Myrtle and Samuel. There are quite a few that could be Wilson or William. Can you rule any of these out, or should I look for them all?

This branch of the family is pretty new to me and as of now I can't rule anyone in or out. I did find most of the family in some city directories but not too much info other than their names. Thanks

After re-looking at the listing at http://omahaobits.wordpress.com/ga-gn/, I decided that the Myrtle and Samuel dates did not match up with the dates you provided. So, I didn't obtain those obits. Attached are the five obits for W. Gardner's. I hope they help.

Apparently, you can't attach more that two docs to a message.

Hi Kathleen,

I'm looking for an obit for Della Marie Fleming Palmer who was born 1891 in Iowa and died on July 3, 1962 in Omaha, Nebraska.
Thank you very much for your willingness to do this.

Thank you for your generous offer to look up Omaha obits. I am interested in an obit for John Mathews Nichols who died 19 May 1929 in Omaha NE and his son John Lee Nichols who died 27 May 1967 in Omaha.

Thank you for your assistance.

Sorry for the delay in my response. I searched the Omaha World Herald morning edition from 4-8 Jul 1962 and found only the attached short obituary on 6 Jul. Hope it helps!
