RE: Leslie Somes
I couldn't find any article and I don't remember sending anything from Wisconsin newspaper. I might have, but I can not find anything there now. Here is our original correspondence about this man. Sorry I can help you more.

RE: Lester Somes
Hi Gwen,
Thank you very much for that information. Now that I have a date, and since he died in Wisconsin, I can get a death record. The was deja vu. This is a paragraph of an obit for his brother, my grandfather: Ralph Somes, a former member of the Melrose Board of Aldermen and a well known resident here for many years, died suddenly from a heart attach Monday while talking to the librarian of the Public Library in Quincy. Mr Somes had called at the library as representative of the F. J. Barnard Company, Bookbimferd, of Boston, where he had been employed for a number of years. The severe gale which taxed Mr. Somes' strength because of a heart ailment, is believed to have contributed to his sudden death
Mr. Somes was 57 years of age . . .
Their brother Norman F. Somes survived a little longer dying at age 77 of cardiac arrest.
Heart disease runs in the family, but modern medicine gives us a better chance. I suffer from congestive heart failure and have an implanted defibrillator. I've attained the age of 81 and hope for a few more good years.
I have been in the process of writing an article on this family for The Essex Genealogist. At present the article poses more questions than it does provide answers; hopefully this will help me find a few more answers.
Thanks again for going beyond the call on my behalf.
Loren Somes

I read your thank for the picture and that it did not provide you with any addition information, so I went to the Newspaper Archives and found the following article. This was in a Wisconsin newspaper.
Richland Salesman, Stricken Here, Dies
Leslie H. Somes, 57, Richalnd Center, a salesman for the W. H. Pepkorn Co., Milwaukee, died of a heart attack in an architect's office at 114 N. Carroll St. Monday afternoon.
Mr. Somes was in the second floor office of Weiler and Strang with W.J. Riopelle, Milwaukee, a fellow salesman, when he suddenly was seized by a heavy breathing spell, police reported.
Dr. John C. Moore was called and ammonia funes were administered unsuccessfully. Dr. Moore pronounced him dead.
Dr. David C. Atwood, coroner and Detective Romain York were summoned and Dr. Atwood found that Mr. Somes had died of natural causes.
The body was taken to the Schroeder funeral home and will be taken today to Mason City, IA. where funeral services and burial will be held later in the week from the Major funeral home. This was in the Wisconsin paper on Nov. 30, 1949. I hope this helps you some.
