Crane obits ordered

Ordered two more obituaries from the Monroe County Public Library. They have been very fast in the past and the convenience of paying via PayPal is a plus.

The obituaries I requested were for my maternal 2nd-great grandaunt and uncle, Thomas Franklin & Mary Florence (Gilliland) Crane.

Mary Florence's obituary appeared in the May 7, 1924 edition of the Bloomington Telephone.  She was only 36 years old.

Thomas' obituary appeared in the August 16, 1948 edition of Bloomington World-Telephone.  He was 76 years old.

I will be interested to see what, if any, additional clues will come from these obituaries.
