Help with obits from 1925 and 1930

Help with obits from 1925 and 1930

Posted: 1358705183000
Classification: Query
Would anyone be available to help locate two obituaries for me? Joseph Doba died in Manistee on 26 January 1925, and his wife Agnes Doba died on 10 May 1930 in Manistee. I would appreciate any help, and I am willing to pay for copies and postage as necessary. Thank you for considering this request.
