Joan died of a type of blood poisoning. She was engaged at the time of her death but never married. Her fiancee was hunting in Canada when she became ill and a frantic search for him ensued, in the hope that he could be found in time for her funeral. But he was not.
Her fiancee, William Lachman, married twice and had two sets of children, all still living. He lived to be 91 and died in Mogadore, Ohio. I've been corresponding with various members of the family including William Lachman's descendants and will tell more of the story later.
