Would someone please lookup a newspaper obituary/article for Chester Joseph or AKA Joseph Chester HENERY?
He passed away on 23 Dec 1902 according to his headstone in the France Cemetery (unknown death place and cause). He was a ranch cook in the 1900 Kiowa County census when he was 20/21 years old. I don't believe he married between 1900 and his death in 1902 as I can't find any proof. He was only 23 years old when he died. He was either living in/and/or taking a business course in Salina, Kansas between 1897 and his death in 1902.
Might there have been an epidemic of some sorts during this time?
Any ideas/help appreciated.
