    Does anyone know where Caroline died, where she is buried? Same as her husband Dennis. Can not find any documentation on either of them. Verified that John F. Oberheim does not have a death certificate at the Carroll County Courthouse. I have an obit for him that only lists his children. Savanna paper stated a full obit to be forthcoming which I have never found. This site has been very useful to me. thanks
