My great uncle Albert Boyd was born 2 Sept 1881 in Delaware Co., Ohio
and died 26 Aug 1919 in Des Moines, IA. He was accidently electrocuted
while working on power lines for the city.
He married Alma LINDOF 25 Mar 1911, born 1887 in Sweden and died
1 July 1979 in Des Moines. They had a son Herbert Raymond Boyd who
passed away a few years ago in Des Moines.
Where might I find an obituary for Albert? Would there be a notice in
the local newspaper of his accidental death? Where would I find that?
Albert was born 1881 and left home when he was young. Family didn't know
where he was until a few years later. I don't know what year he went to
Appreciate any tips.
