William and Pauline Kolbe's Death Information
Sue Kolbe had burial cards from Holy Cross Cemetery in Detroit, Michigan. These cards provided a lot of valuable information such as: age at death, cause of death, birthplace, cemetery plot, address of the deceased, and undertaker.
William Kolbe died on August 31, 1913 and was buried on September 3. This fits into the suggested death timeframe of 1910 to 1920 as he was listed in the 1920 census, but not in the 1920 census. (See the September 28, 2009 blog entry).
Pauline Kolbe died on July 9, 1928 and was buried on July 12. This fits into the suggested death timeframe of 1920 to 1930 as she was listed in the 1920 census, but not in the 1930 census. (See the September 28, 2009 blog entry).
Now that I knew their death dates and places, I could obtain a copy of their death certificates. Hopefully the death certificate will contain the names of their parents!
NOTE: If you are interested in additional information about Holy Cross Cemetery, a new book, "Detroit's Holy Cross Cemetery"is available November 30, 2009 from Arcadia Publishing. The author, Elaine Walters Raymo, will be featured in future blog posts.
