I am looking for obituaries for John D. SCANLAN (born in Irleand abt 1830). The census records show him to have been a constable. The Illinois Statewide Death Index, Pre-1916 shows three of posibilities for John. However I don't know if any of them are correct.

John D. Died 10-09-1900 at age 74.
John died 12/31/ 1893 at age 63 years old.
Another John died 2/18/1887 at age 63 yrs.

He married Rosanna POWELL( born in New York about 1835). I would also like her obit.
That index shows one posibility for her.
Rose A. SCANLON died 7/20 1897 at age 59.

John and Roseannaa had at least 8 children that I have found: Mary (1857) and Thomas William (b. 1859), both must have died young because neither is in the 1860 census. Then they had Ellen (b. 1860), John E. (b. abt. 1863), James Henry (b. 1865), Margaret (b. 1870), William (b. abt 1873), and Sarah (b. 1875).

In the 1880 Census, they lived on Walnut Street.

Thanks for all your help.
