Greetings from Michigan! I am looking for info on what I believe was a car wreck, that ended the life of Bonner LUSK, in June of 1923. I just noticed that his death certificate was filed in Centralia, and am figuring the accident must have occurred fairly close to ther. Bonner's family was originally from Tennessee, but by this time was living in Eldorado, Saline County. Thanks, Sally
