There is a Stephen Switzer on the 1895 Iowa State Census for Grand River, Wayne County, IA. There is a "D" in the comments for this record. In my research, I determined the "D" means he died within the months preceeding the census.
I can find no tombstone for him. I believe his wife died between 1856-1860 in Decatur county. I can't find her tombstone either (thinking maybe they buried him with her).
Any ideas on where I can look to get an actual death date for Stephen (or his wife) or a will or some other solid documentation?
All suggestions greatfully accepted.
