I looked Edward up on the FMP newspaper archive without success. You sure there was an obit? (Not just findagrave or US SocSec deaths?)

Think it's on page 48 of The Philadelphia Daily News, 16 Dec 1997, but I no longer have access to Newspapers.com so can't download a readable image - sorry Boscod.
Maybe someone else has access ?

The Philadelphia Daily News doesn't appear to be among the collection at Find My Past.

The 1912 directory on that dublin1850 site (presume its yours) has just thrown me in to a 20 minute rabbit hole involving the childrens folklore collection, Geohive maps, old legislation and bouncing stuff off my brother who's in to industrial history just from one hotel name I'd never seen before.
