I'm sorry, but I cannot find anything more than what you have from the Hipp's book on Grover Hill.I tried the Ohiohistory link to look for death certs ... that site link is:http://www.ohiohistory.org/dindexhttp://www.ohiohistory.org/dindex Perhaps you can think of some way to find these names/dates under "mistyped, misfiled info".
I used the 1918 death date and placed W* in the last name for a wildcard search, but still didn't find anything.After trying Paulding COunty, I tried Putnam & Van Wert, but nothing there either.Since these transcribers are trying to read/input sometimes impossible penmanship, it's hard to tell how these death certs were entered.
Sorry I couldn't be of help.I know the feeling of not finding information that you KNOW just has to be there somewhere.
My Frost/Henry line in the Putnam/Paulding Counties is also very frustrating.Thank goodness for Laurence Hipp's book! That has been a great help to at least KNOW they were there!
