I have sent 2 obits for Otto Kathmann via his edit panel. They are 2 different ones. There used to be a handful of papers in Quincy IL and they'd print slightly or very different stories about the same people.

So I sometimes will include more than one obit on a page if it contains different information which might help their descendants.

I also made some clippings (screen images) of some shorter articles about Otto and his wife, and so on. At first I thought I'd pin them to your pages via photo sections (after asking first), and then I could've removed them again once you had downloaded them.

But then I got going and have several clippings now. If you'd like them, I can email them or, you can make your own in the same archive. I just use the Windows snipping tool that comes free with your computer system. You can google how to do it if you don't already know.

So I guess I wanted to do someone a genealogical kindness on Christmas Day.

In any case enjoy. And by the way I sent some links to his parents, just approve the edit and it will link them up.

RE: Otto Kathmann
OK. Will type it up for you asap and Merry Christmas.

I found a great many articles about Kathmans in the Quincy newspaper archives by the way. If you have not seen it you might enjoy it.

You can find it by googling a phrase like "Quincy IL newspaper archive" or "Quincy IL library newspaper archive." On the page click 'search' - if you get pop up boxes just click those and checkmark those til they go away. It's been wonky lately, but when I do that the boxes go away.

It's a free resource.

I will type up that obit for you a bit later today though.

Otto Kathmann
There is a nice long obituary in the Quincy IL newspaper archives, if you would like me to type it. It seems you have a wonderful biography of him already on his page so I didn't want to presume.

Perhaps you have a copy of the obituary already.

Clark, I've transferred her memorial to you. I found her obit while I was looking for another obit for someone else. When i do this I generally create a memorial for them. So now it's yours!!
