Sunday’s Obituary – Frank McCormack

Today, for Sunday’s Obituary post, I would like to share the obituary and death notice for Frank J. McCormack, the youngest son of Michael and Catherine McCormack. I don’t know much about Frank. Not for the lack of trying though. At one time, I thought I had a photo of him. But it turned out to be his brother-in-law, Henry.

Frank did leave a good sized probate file.

Frank is buried in the Oak Hill Cemetery located in Janesville, Wisconsin. He is buried next to his wife, Cora Anne Baldwin McCormack. They did not have any children or any children that I know about or survived to be recorded on any official record. The next most unfortunate thing about Frank and Cora is that they do NOT have any kind of gravestone or marker. They are buried in an unmarked grave. Someday, that injustice will be corrected.

Thanks for stopping by!
