SOME OBITS/DEATH NOTICES--ALBRECHT to JUDSON
 

Transcribed and copied by Gail Hahn Hutchcraft. Says Gail, Many of these obits did NOT include date of death. Where possible, I have included a date - or an approximate date - either from the date of my relative on page or issue of newspaper. Also, some were not copied in total because of copyrights; but if you know nothing, it at least is a start. AND, some are death notices - some are obits - some have both. ENJOY!

Thanks for sharing the data, Gail!
