I would almost bet that I already had this information, but for some reason it wasn't in my database. I find it strange that his death occurred in mid-August and yet it took until the first week of September for any mention of his death in Bloomington paper. Perhaps there was a Spencer newspaper that would have more information. Now that I have his exact date of death, I can seek this out.
The spelling of the surname also gives me an indication of how the name was pronounced, likely without a hard 'd' at the end.
