That's great, Susan. Thank you so much. The Evening Star was a very well-respected city paper well into the mid-1900s, so I would place great faith in the material that they included in the obituary. Lacking, of course, is any mention of his relationship with President Lincoln and of his securing Staples as a substitute.
