I have a huge favor to ask of someone. It can only be done if the local library or newspaper office has an index of some sort to the local newspaper.
I need an obituary for George William Tandy who, it is reported, died in Crawford, Dawes County, Nebraska. I, unfortunately, do not know exactly when he died which is why this will only be a viable request if the newspaper or library has an index that would have him listed. I do know that he was born in 1847 in Taylor County, Kentucky. His wife's name was Lovinda (McCormick) Tandy but she died in March 1943 in Falls City, Polk County, Oregon and is buried in the City View Cemetery, Salem, Marion County, Oregon. George is not buried with her. Her obituary does not mention her husband, so I believe that George died before 1943.
Can someone please advise me as to the odds of there being an index. And, if so, if someone would look up George for me.
