Subject: Need Obit from 1895 Hanging Death of William Caffery

I am trying to find an obit for William Caffery who was found hanging from a tree in Minnetonka Mills, Minnesota in 1895. He traveled from Michigan (McBain and/or Mount Pleasant area) and was presumed to be traveling to meet his brother, Daniel, of Brainerd, Minnesota. Two hunters found him hanging from a tree in a wooded area. I am searching for his obit and death certificate. I have looked online for the obit in both Michigan and Minnesota, but have not had any luck. Thank you, Mary
