The following was posted on the Wood County Genealogy Research page at Facebook by member and Quitman Public Library Director Delene Allen. If you can help with a look up on the microfilm at the library, please do so as soon as possible. Let us know if you decide to try to help the people making this query.
From: Delene H Allen
I received this query and am forwarding it to the society since you are scheduled to update obits at your Monday meeting:
Our patron is looking for obituaries of three individuals who died in your area. They were all interned at Mt Pisgah. We hope that you have your local newspaper on microfilm and maybe you could send us those obituaries. Please let us know if it is possible or, if not, please advise, who will be the right person/agency to ask fro your local history research.
