Denise provided the obituary for William H Hackett, my maternal great grandfather. Still looking for information on my grandfather Ellis and his brother Asel. Ellis lived in Sedalia MO ~1900-1920 Both lived in Sioux City in the 20's and in Chicago ca. 1930. Ellis married Nadine Morrissey of DeWitt Iowa ca. 1893.

Dennis, Do you know their death dates? And where they died? I can check a few online newspaper sites for you.

There is an obit for 'an' Ellis in the Sterling Gazette:
Subject Description Date Location
Hackett, Ellis obituary 28 July 1934;10;1

The best/fastest way to get a copy of this is to contact Marilyn Anderson in the Genealogy Dept. of the Sterling Public Library where the newspapers are archived on microfilm. SPL-Genealogy@comcast.net. If for some reason Marilyn is not able to help, let me know and I will transcribe it for you on my next visit to the library.

I will continue to look for an obit for Asel.
