Hello out their in Henry County, I have a request for an obit.
Osmer Reed Skipton, a first cousin to my grandfather, died in
Winfield on 21 June 1951. He was a painter. I do have his
Obit but I am looking for information on his wife. All I know
about her is her name was Nettie Louisa Blockmole Skipton
and she died 25 Aug 1979. I know Osmer is buried in Winfield
Scott Cemetery but don't know if his wife is their with him.
I sure would appreciate an Obit lookup or a cemetery lookup.
