I am researching multiple surnames in Woodbury Co and would like to be
to find the obits for these folks. I have found that the Sioux City
Journal in the early 1900's is very difficult for locating an Obit. easily
[unless your ancestor was a well known businessman or community leader].
am wondering if there were alternate papers or local township papers
may have existed and may be archived somewhere in the county. I am
primarily interested in Grant township and surrounding community, as well
as the Sargent Bluff's area between 1905 - 1920.
The surnames I am researching in Woodbury County: NORTON, MCCLUSKY,
I can't help you with anything in Grant township, but as far as Sergeant
Bluff, you could call, write, or visit the
Sergeant Bluff Advocate, which is the local newspaper office in Sergeant
Bluff. Their address and phone number is as follows:
Sergeant Bluff Advocate
405 4th St.
Sergeant Bluff, IA. 51054
Hope that helps you out in some way:)
