Maybe you are able to help/advise on another matter?
I have a person in my family tree who most likely died in DEVILS LAKE, ND
and I would be very interested in her obituary.

Name: EMMA (Clifton) DAHL
b. 9/17/1897 Maddock, ND
d. December 1978 in Devils Lake, ND
She was (most likely) the wife of my grandfather's 1st cousin Severt B.
DAHL/e (1891-1951).
Emma's obit may also have appeared in a Maddock newspaper, if it exists.

Thanks for your cooperation. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
