BROWN, Matilda (KNOP) - obit anyone?

Classification: Query
Looking for obit and/or any info on Matilda. She was born Matilda Henrietta KNOP in Feb. 1865 in Kaselin-Pomern, Prussia. She married George Elmer BROWN Sept. 1886.

In the 1910 Census they were living in Waveland Twp., Pottawattamie Co., Iowa and George is shown as a proprietor of a pool hall.

In the 1920 Census Matilda was a widow, age 53, (so George died before 1920) living at 1922 Chicago Street, Omaha, Douglas Co., Nebraska. With her were her daughter, Hazel (now Flanagan), age 23, her grandsons, Royal LaPage, age 9, and George Johnson, age 9, and her granddaughter Ina Johnson, age 7. Shows Matilda immigrated to the U.S. in 1869 and was naturalized in 1888.

Her daughter Hazel had been married to William Henry "Harry" LaPage but apparently married a Flanagan before 1920. Her other daughter, Frances, was married to Guy Wilbur JOHNSON, but haven't found them and don't know why their children George & Ina were living with their grandmother.

Can't seem to find Matilda FLANAGAN in the 1930 census or beyond, so perhaps she died before 1930.

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