On 26 August, 1946 my father, John Joseph Taggart, died in Lorain, Ohio as a result of injuries received on the dredge Tonawanda. I was wondering what local news paper I might contact to find an article about this incident? What would have been the local major hospital that he might have been sent to at that time? The Tonawanda was a dredge boat that worked on the Lake Erie breakwater off the shores of Cleveland, Ohio and helped dredge out the Cuyahoga river. Any help would be much appreciated.
