Quest for Conrad Grener's Death Record

Quest for Conrad Grener's Death Record

Researching collateral lines is important. My great+ aunt Lizzie Greener is the daughter of my grandfather Joseph Geißler whom I have written about many times. Her husband was Conrad Greener b 1853 d 1905. I had hoped to find a death record for him online to support the grave markers that I have found for him.

So far, using Ancestry and FamilySearch, I haven't found a death record for Conrad, Mary Elizabeth's husband, but rather for her father-in-law Conrad the senior.

The death record for Conrad with Mary Elizabeth Geißler shares a tombstone is still elusive. I have tried various name combinations for Conrad and I keep coming up empty. The collection implies that a death record with the date 1905 would be in this collection. If it is, for now I might need to do the Browse Method to find it.
