GLASGOW posted by Jack Glasgow on Sunday, March 23, 1997

Samuel Glasgow died Chicago, Cook Co. on July 4, 1893. He was traveling (Worlds Fair?) and died in a Transit House (hotel?). I am trying to find where he was buried and the location of his permanent home. Have much Glasgow info.

I am looking for information about a man, who died in a house fire about 20 years ago, but it could be longer ago. His data: Albert A Johnsen, then of 1933 W Henderson in Chicago.
