    • According to the perpetual calendar Sept 21 fell on a Friday in 1894.
      I was looking through the old Greenwood bible and found an obituary for Mr. W.C. Greenwood. I do not have a date, as it has been cut out and pasted to a piece of cardboard with other death notices. It reads: "Greenwood - Died, Friday, Sept 21, at his home in Kansas City, Mr. W.C. Greenwood. Mr. Greenwood was a resident of this city fifteen years. He went to California in 1849 and contracted rheumatism on the way from which he never recovered. He was in the habit of late years of taking morphine to relieve himself of rheumatic pains and it was from an overdose of this drug that his death resulted. He was sixty years old and is survived by Mrs. Greenwood and three children. He was once one of the leading contractors and builders in Kansas City."
      I am thinking this would be 1893. He was born in 1833. "This City" I am sure refers to Springfield. Hope this helps.
