Thanks Jerri. His name was William Lindquist and he died Jan. 28, 1949 at University Hospital in Omaha. The death certificate says he slipped on some ice (Jan. 4,1949) in Staplehurst, NE (where he lived) and fractured his Rt. hip. He actually died from pneumonia while in the hospital. The funeral home that removed his body from the hospital was Brailey & Dorrance. I have already contacted the funeral home that has those records and I am waiting to hear from them. He was buried in potters field in Seward Cemetery. I know he lived in Staplehurst for at least 20 yrs. He never married or had any children. He was 78 when he passed away.
