Hi Chris,

The historical note has been added to his record and noted as contributed by you. :-) Do you know if he was in the regular army or one of the Delaware units?

RE: German obit wanted
What historical society are you talking about? You know the Missouri Historial Society has its main library on the SMU campus in Columbia. Their newspapers are on microfilm, an entire room of historic Missouri newspapers. And they have an online catalog telling what they have. You should go there. I spent a week there, during which I stayed at the University Avenue Bed & Breakfast, which is easy walking distance from the MHS library. (The B&B is usually booked solid on ballgame weekends). It's an ancestry geek's dream vacation.

RE: German obit wanted
Chris: I found and posted one for Ernst Krech. The "Hermanner Volksblatt" has a good range of years imaged and online at Chronicling America; 1860-1922 I think--including a couple of years when it went by the name "Gasconade Zeitung"--but some years are spotty and some are nonexistent. Years 1899-1903 are completely missing, so I can't help with Augusta Lessel's obit. The English version Gasconade paper is online at Missouri Digital Heritage. (From Missouri Digital Heritage, search "Digitized Newspapers"). It has a narrower span of years than the Hermanner Volksblatt on Chronicling America, but it does include some of Chronicling America's missing years. The English version was "The Advertiser-Courier" and I think they also have some issues of the Owensville newspaper.
