Emma Boals m. Roland Hardgrove around 1879, probably in Athens County, Ohio. They are in Athens County, Ohio census in 1880 and 1900 with children Charles, Shelby, Walter, George, Mary and Fred. A genealogy book says they ended up in Gladwin County, Michigan after that.
My goal is twofold:
I want to trace Emma's parentage
I'd like to find a death certficate for her. Are there county or statewide indexes of death records for Michigan? How do I go about getting a copy of a death certificate once I find date and location of death?
