Hi Vickie, I've been searching newspapers and various subscription sites with no luck. However, the Sterling Gazette online Index shows obits for "a" Francis Abraham and a Mrs. Mary Caughey. Perhaps those (if they are your people) obits would lead to other clues. I could not find an obit for Samuel. The Gazette is on microfilm, available via inter-library loan. It is also archived in the Sterling (IL) Public Library. The Whiteside Genealogy Society archives in that library, with Marilyn Anderson as dept. head.

A separate website is for some of the Sterling Gazette newspapers that have been digitalized and online: http://sterlingpl.newspaperarchive.com/http://sterlingpl.newspaperarchive.com/ This is an on-going project; not all of the issues have been uploaded yet.
