While FindAGrave is not perfect, there may be a clue in the person who created or maintains the memorial for that distant relative. Sometimes those individuals are descendants of the deceased and, to be honest, sometimes those individuals are memorial collectors bent on getting as many names as possible. The majority are somewhere in between with many focused on preserving memorial information before it is lost forever.

It still be worth a few minutes of time to reach out to that person to see if they are related to the deceased or if they have any information beyond the memorial
