Some Obituaries from Medina and Seneca Twps., Lenawee Co, MI and Chesterfield and Gorham Twp., Fulton Co, Ohio 1890-1899, M thru Z.

These obituary abstractions were taken from an old scrapbook of obituaries, marriages, articles of interest and a few births found in the Stair Public Library in Morenci in 2007. The scrapbook is owned by Mrs. Jean Laser and is on temporary loan to the library. It covers roughly the years between 1890-1899 and mostly persons from the Townships of Medina and Seneca in Michigan and Chesterfield and Gorham in Ohio. I was able to scan these pages and if you are able to receive attachments, I will send you the full scanned page of any obits/etc. you are interested in (email only, please). Many of them have more information and are quite colorful. The index is not an all-name index, but does include the main surnames and maiden names if available.
