Finally made it out to the library.Only problem was that the roll of microfilm is gone - either lost or stolen!I couldn't believe it when I had the librarian double check in the file cabinet for me.She finally checked her "missing list" and wouldn't you know it, that roll is missing!I was so disappointed!That was at the Macomb County Library.
SO, I figured I would mosey over to our county seat city of Mt. Clemens and see what I could find out.I did find out that they do have the film, but I could not use it.The library has been doing a big renovation for the last six months or so, and this Sunday they are closing down for about 3-4 weeks to move all their things to the upper level again.At that time, the microfilm and readers will be available for viewing, which is at least a bit of good news.
I did find a couple books that listed births and deaths in Macomb County and found the death listing for Gunn, Aggie M. of typhoid fever on November 16, 1883.She is listed as 19 years old, daughter of Alexander & Louisa.I also found the birth of James E. Gun (only single n in spelling of last name) on August 10, 1871 to Alexander & Laura Gun.
I wasn't able to get to the township office and cemetery due to rain today, but hopefully within the next week I'll see what I can do about that.
Sorry I couldn't have been of more help - I haven't had to look at our local news for an obit that old and was looking forward to seeing how the type was set up and what the paper looked like at that time in general.
