James and Jane Gordon - death info needed

Posted: 1297873557000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Gordon, Newton
I am trying to locate death information for James Gordon. He was born about 1829 in Adams Co, OH. During the 1870s, he migrated westward. In the 1885 Kansas state census, James and his family were living in Marysville Twp, Marshall Co. By 1900, he had purchased a farm in Guittard Twp. Early family historians are somewhat confused about where he died but all agree that he died before 1910.

A letter from a relative, written in the early 20th century, states that he died in Marshall Co, and I am trying to confirm that information. Can anyone help me with this? It certainly appears that he died between 1900 and 1910.

I am also looking for death information for his wife Jane I. They were married in Ohio and her maiden surname is unknown. The 1910 census shows her living back in Marysville Twp.

They were the parents of ten children, two of whom died young. The three youngest were born in Kansas - James R, Margaret M and Grover Cleveland Gordon. Another daughter, Eldora (Dora), married George A Newton in Marshall Co.

Thank you for any help you can provide.
