At the time of his death, most of his family had already died. The Informant on his Death Certificate was his sister Estella, living in Akron, OH. He had been living in Ogden two years before his death, unknown when he had last lived in Malad. His parents/brother died in 1949/1950. Someone did make sure he had a gravestone. It appears he had farmed his parents farm, so may have sold it after their deaths. That would account for some income. Local county records in Oneida and in Ogden might produce a probate (a civil case to distribute estates, County Superior courts are required to maintain court records).
--An obit in his case might not have been published, due to the above and his removal from the area for at least two years. The area "might" have had a local newspaper, if not, in a lot of cases, obit's aren't purchased from a distant newspaper.

His Death Certificate (Attached) identifies he was born Oct 30, 1890, never married, had been living in Ogden for two years. His Informant was Estella Hess, Akron, Ohio. He was a hotel clerk, born in Westmorland County, PA, father Jeremiah George, born in PA; mother: Hannah Annikin, born in England. The remains were removed to the St. John Cemetery in Malad, ID.

Blanche, 20, ID
Beryl C, dau, 16
Maxine, 14

--So, LCD did have nieces and a nephew.

--The Bureau of Land Management has a database of land patents issued under the Homestead Act:
It shows Jeremiah obtained 320 acres on 3/20/1916 in Oneida County. Land was in Township 15 S, Range 30 East, Section 9. A Section is one square mile in size and contains 640 acres.
Here is the location of that land. Unfortunately it is further described as "tracts" so where the actual land was located would require local land records. Usually the land is described as "the south half of the Northeast quarter of the section..." etc.


Jeremiah, Hanna and Bert all died in 1949/1950,
