I have a photocopy of the following obituary for Thomas E. Evans. It is very likely the Traer Star Clipper... he lived in Traer. Based on his birthdate (28, 29 or 30 May of 1858 or 1859) it could be dated in April of 1941 or 1942. I am hoping there is an index. Here is a portion of the obit:
Tom Evans, Resident of Traer for 32 Years, Dead a the Age of 83
Succumbs to Cancer at Home After Many Months of Failing Health
BODY IS TAKEN TO CARROLL, NEBRASKA
Burial at His Former Home After Service in Welsh Church There
T. E. (Tom) Evans, a resident of Traer thirty-two years, died at his home early Monday [date?] morning after many months of failing health. He lacked only about a month of being 83 years old. He was a victim of cancer.
Mr. Evans, a son of David and Jane Evans, was born May 29, 1858, in Ohio...

Another undated Nebraska obit has May 30, 1859... the disagreements between the two of them make an unfortunate cunfusion that is undiciferable. I need either the date of the newspaper or his actually death date... I am trying for the newspaper.
If anyone has access to the newspaper, I would be greatful for the assistance.
Thank you very much,
Steve Morse www.stevemorse.org has developed some useful tools for searching
sites such as ellisisland.org and castlegarden.org Here is an update from
Steve Morse has just added an AD/ED finder for the 1925 New York state
census for Manhattan to his website.
The web page is at http://www.stevemorse.org/nyc/nyc.php.
This AD/ED finder is part of an ongoing project to develop AD/ED finders for
each of the five boroughs in the
New York state censuses for 1905, 1915, and 1925, none of which are indexed.
These other AD/ED finders were
completed previously: 1915: Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens; 1925: Bronx and
The AD/ED finder will supply you with the AD(s) and ED(s) of the street and
cross-streets that you select.
Clicking on the AD/ED displayed will show you the boundaries of that AD and
ED and the LDS microfilm number
and reel number.

SKS shared this on another list that I am on. Thought I would pass it on.
The Castle Garden Database is now online. You can presently search New
York passenger arrivals from 1830-1892...
Good luck with your searches.
