Random Acts of Genealogical Kindess - James E. Koerner

Easton Express, 07SEP1959, pg 16
Because we all have collateral information surrounding those obituaries and news articles we copy for our records.  Let's share them and hope that they benefit someone researching their genealogy.

"James E. Koerner

James E. Koerner, 48, of Joilet, Ill., died last night at 8 o'clock in his room at the Union Hotel, Flemington.  He had been a guest at the hotel since June.

Dr. John Lincoln, of Flemington, Hunterdon County physician, performed an autopsy later and listed the cause of death as pneumonia.

Barton Evans, Flemington police chief, said that Koerner was clerk on a construction job at the Cary Chemical Co., near Fleminton.  He was employed by the Scientific Design Co., In., of New York City.

The body was removed to the Holcombe Funeral Home, Flemington, for later removal to Illinois."

This was one of the articles that made me want to post some Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness.  I don't know if Mr. Koerner left a wife and children back in Illinois, but unless someone knew he died in Flemington, New Jersey.
