    He was preceded in death by a sister, Wilma Wilch and an infant brother, Leland Geiger.
    possibly? But how many unclaimed (family of) know they are deceased and don't claim?

    If any of the unclaimed are known we don't post those cases. If the ME forgets to update or remove a case it may get posted by accident.

    I think that is a different Wilma Wilch. I can't pull up the webpages because the links don't work but this is what would be on the page.
    Database:database\obituary file.mdb • Obituary Sorted by ... WILCH, WILMA C GEIGER, 27, OCT, 2003, Courier, 5, VanBuren - Jenera (Trinity Lutheran).
    WILMA C GEIGER 27 OCT 2003

    The Wilma C. Geiger fits with the census for Mr. Geiger. Looks like this Wilma passed away in 2003.

    I am having no luck on finding children of the siblings. Her mother seemed to have a large family so maybe can find some type of cousins.

    Not sure if any of the people mentioned in this article are related but it is an interesting article about a Rainwater family. http://www.therainwatercollection.co...rence/2143.pdf

    Wilma's Uncle Guy Rainwater, her mother Stella's brother, had a daughter named Tessa, Wilma's first cousin, who married Solomon Looper. At this link http://www.e-familytree.net/F121/F121780.htm, it lists the names of all Tessa and Solomon's children, Wilma's second cousins I believe.

    I will look to see if there are any still living and find their numbers.
