Remember that newspaper accounts of events can easily be incorrect and that every detail should be verified with other records if at all possible. Newspapers can easily get details of current events incorrect. I’ve seen obituaries of the same person in different papers conflict with each other over current details. The chance for error is even greater when dealing with the details of some person’s life in an obituary.
