Look them up in the social security death index http://ssdi!.rootsweb!.ancestry!.com/ and see what town they lived in at the time of death!. Then look for newspaper files from that town!. Go to your local library to find out where the nearest historical society is and they can no doubt help you find what you're looking for if it exists!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Local Newspapers!. The library in the area where they lived may have them in their archive, probably on microfiche!.
