Is there a obit. listed in Durham North Carolina for Nov. 2 1915? My great-grandfather William H. OWEN, died there and is buried in Maplewood Cemetery.

I found a story in the Durham Morning Herald from Wed, Nov. 3, 1915, page 5 about a fire in the county home that killed Mr. Billy Owen, a Confederate Vet. I also found a notice of his funeral at Maplewood Cemetery. You can see the articles I clipped here:
