Could you please tell me if it was common to print obits for the average "run-of-the-mill" person as early as 1916? How might I locate one? I am looking for info on Kansas Elizabeth Rains (Raines?) SCOTT aka "Cannie". She died sometime in 1916 of tuberculosis according to her last surviving daughter who was only 5 or 6 years old when she died. I am also looking for information on Charles (Charley/Charlie) SCOTT b. 1891 who was supposedly killed in a hunting accident between 1910 and 1917. He was a brother to Cannie's husband, William (Will) SCOTT. Will and his family were in Kiamichie Twp, Pushmataha Co, OK on the 1910 census. Any help will be appreciated.
