Harry Edgar Pauley
« on: Monday 16 May 22 16:24 BST (UK) »
Hi All
             I am unable to find a death of Harry Edgar Pauley born about 1867 Missouri. He was last seen on 1930 census age 62, divorced, inmate State Penitentiary, Delaware. Leavenworth, Kansas.
             If anyone knows what happened after 1930 I would appreciate it.

If he went to prison for murder, especially at his age, he may not have got out and died there.

Here's a partial snipping from another article in September. It appears he was sentenced to 25 years in prison. I assume that is where he died.

I see his name on the Kansas State Penitentiary records. There may be death records available?
