I am looking for the location of the Maple House Hotel in Charleston that was owned by Miles and Julia Lathrop according to the 1895-1896 Coles County Directory.Where can I find property deed information regarding when they purchased this hotel and when they sold it?
I am interested in any information about Miles and Julia Lathrop.They moved to Charleston in about 1887 and he died on 10-30-1900 at the age of 69 years.I am told that there is no newspaper available at that time to look up an obituary notice.Apparently the issues from September of 1900 to January of 1901 are not available.Is this true?
Their children were:
Frank Lathrop - born 1854 - married Virginia Padgett in 1893, she was born 1875.
Sarah Pleadies Lathrop - born 1856 - married Cassius Crim in 1878.Stayed in Sylvania, Lucas County, Ohio.
Fred Lathrop - born 1860 died 1882.Died before arriving in Charleston.
