As luck would have it, I received my membership packet from the Ohio Genealogical Society in the mail. One of the many benefits of membership in the OGS includes access to NewspaperArchive.com and it was the first resource I decided to browse. My first search request was simply the name "Hellmund" just to see how many "hits" I would receive. I wasn't disappointed! The list seemed to be full of possibilites.
One of the newspapers included was The Waterloo Courier in Waterloo, Iowa. This is the newspaper that had provided so many answers to me previously about the electrocution incident, so I was very encouraged that there might be some further morsels of new information about August. I wasn't disappointed!
But, this still didn't answer the question regarding his date of death. As I continued to scan the list of given articles, I discovered what I had been looking for.
The second article appeared on Wednesday, 28 October, 1942, and is more of an actual obituary, giving funeral and family information.
After discovering these articles, I also found information about several of August's children, as well as numerous articles regarding August's sister, Caroline, which appeared in the Piqua Daily Call in Piqua, Miami County, Ohio. As a matter of fact, in only one day's time, I have created a very large stack of papers that will now need to be sorted and filed accordingly. But, I'm certainly not complaining. I love it when I have knocked down another one of those pesky little "brick walls"!
