"Jacob Copus Dies Sunday," (Delphos, Ohio) The Delphos Herald, 20 September 1920, p. 2.
I love obituaries from old, small town newspapers. They gave more detail and plenty of info to write a good story about the ancestor in you family history. This obituary for my 2nd great grandfather, Jacob Copus, gives the details of the day he died and a biographical sketch of his entire life. This is what I'd consider the perfect obituary. Wouldn't it be wonderful if they all contained this much information?
