Makes sense to me, given the sources you can look at.
I hope you can one day get to see the death certs.

They lived in Langlade County which adjoins Marathon and the main towns are about 30 miles apart. Langlade County has a web site where it has an index to all deaths in the County at least up to 2006 and the spouses who died in Marathon County are listed in the Langlade County Death Records Index. I have always been curious about this but have never had an opportunity to check the actual death certificate. I use the information from the obituary and record the death as the Hospital and the obituary as the source. I also include the death index as a second source.
