Hi all, I've been trying to track an ancestor of mine, James Bromagen/Bromagem (various spellings have been seen) who was living with his family in Cincinnati in 1870. By 1880 his wife was a widow so I was hoping to be able to find him in the Hamilton Co., death records at the Blegen Library. I got notification yesterday though, that they did not find anything for him. So now I guess that means that he died outside Cincinnati but I don't know how to find out when since state-wide registration wasn't required until 1882. I was thinking of looking for a tombstone transcription project that may have come across a grave for him but the odds of that seem pretty slim, especially with a 10 yr. search range. Oh and to make matters worse, it looks like there is a question of identity with another man, same name and same approx. age from Darke Co., OH. If anyone has any suggestions on other ways to find out when he died I would greatly appreciate it.
