+6 votes

In my searches I have been trying to find the grave and death date of my children's grandfather. I would sure appreciate any help: His Name was Maxwell Sturm, b. 1917 to Samuel (James) and Jennie Brown Sturm, in Portage County Ohio (I think) and I cannot find a death date but I believe it was 1966 (give or take) and he could have died in Summit County, OH or in Portage County. I have check the SS death index and don't find him.

I have no idea if this might be related.  You might try to get the actual certificate and see if it contains any more details, such as parents, nearest relative etc.
