Carl & Caroline (KNOP/RATZLAFF) LINKE - obits anyone?

Looking for obits and/or any info on this couple.

Caroline (Hermine Caroline Theresa) KNOP was b. Feb 1859 in Germany and married Herman RATZLAFF in 1879 in Cass Co., Iowa. They were divorced in 1904 and about 1905 she married Carl LINKE. In the 1910 and 1920 Censuses they were living in Nevada, Vernon, Co., Missouri. Two of Caroline's sons were with them, Paul & Elmer RATZLAFF.

In the 1930 Census, Carl LINKE is 70 and shown as a widower, still living in Nevada. So Caroline died between 1920 and 1930.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. You may contact me directly at
