While I can't help you with the obits, I'm wondering if you are any relation
to Rudy Spaulding from Fisher, IL? I correspond with his daughter, who has
done a lot of work on both sides of the family.
If you are related to Rudy, and you don't know his daughter Pam, I would be
happy to pass your email on to her to see if she can help you in the search.
Also, have you tried to order any old newspapers from that area through
interlibrary loan? Do you know the names of the newspapers? Have you checked
with any of the churches in that area for church records? Obits from that
time sometimes were very brief and concise.
And BTW, where is Bureau County? Southern, central or western Illinois? I
live in DuPage County by Chicago, so I probably can't help much, but I'm
willing to try if you know of any resources in the Chicago area.

PS - You might also try the RAOGK website and see if there are any
volunteers from Bureau County who could check the local libraries for you.

Subject: [IL-Old-News] George and Loretta Spaulding
Seeking obituaries for GEORGE ABISHA SPAULDING, who died in Bureau
Illinois 21 Jan 1879. Also for his wife, LORETTA L. (FIELD) SPAULDING,
died just 7 days later, 28 Jan 1879. She died in Dover, Bureau
Illinois, so we expect George also died near there. George was born 1808
and Loretta 1811. They are my GGgrandparents.
Any help will be appreciated. Thank you-Robert <RobtRoss(a)hotmail.com>
