I couldn't select a proper 'topic' so "the name" will have to do. I finally got the death date on Mike McCrehin. He was born in New York 1837 and I have been unable to find his parents. Anyhow through the census I found him in Minnesota in 1900 and 1910. In 1910 he was living with a William Hill, his wife and 8 yr. old son. I had spent some time in trying to find a death date for him and it finally came through" Family Search".
He died 9/5/1911 at Beltrami Co., MN. That's where he was in 1910 census. His name was written down as McCueun at Family Search. I know that was him because of the Beltrami Co.. Beltrami is right next to where we live in MN. I went to the courthouse in Bemidji to see the records. His name was down as McCruen. He was accidentally shot by William Hill while William Hill was shooting at a bear. We walked through the cemetery he must have been buried at, a township cemetery, but found no marker. He wasn't listed in the cemetery listing either. Part of a mystery is solved."
