I am trying to flesh out a family tree and am finding it difficult to pin down a death date for Noble Swartz born in 1900 in Deshler Ohio. He married Mildred Egbert and lived in Chicago for a while. I have Mildred as passing away in 1947 in Chicago. I found records for her and her son Lyle Swartz who passed away in 1970 both listed on your website under the Obituaries is the Deshler Flag. I found a tombstone on the Find A Grave website with Mildred and Noble Swartz but no dates. Do you know of any way I can find death records for Noble Swartz? I am working through and I can find him in the 1940 census in Chicago. Also there are records that he worked for the railroad. But there is nothing about when he died. Any info you can share would be much appreciated. I am related through the common ancestors of Aaron Swartz and Sarah Jane Hogbin.
