When and where did he and his wife die, where were they buried. either in Green Bay or Bay settlement. Did his wife Bergheger perhaps return to Europe .....? Any info would help

I am looking for any information regarding Lewis James WILLIAMS born 8/27/1887 in Green Bay WI. I believe his father was John Williams. Here is Lewis's obituary from Toledo Ohio. Lew Williams, former Toledo newspaperman, poet and author of several books on juvenile work died today at home, Suder Ave. and Benore Rd., after a long illness he was 72.

His text book, "Junior Journalism," was published by the International Boys Club Press Association of which he was president, and for years was used in Journalism classes of Boys Clubs in the United States and Canada. Mr. Williams was born in Green Bay, Wis., and reared in New Your City, but spent most of his life in Toledo. He spent 10 years in social service work as superintendent of the Boys Detention Home in New York and of the Allen County Vocational School for Boys in Fort Wayne, Ind., and as director of the Toledo Newsboys Association.

A lecturer as well as a writer, he was engaged in speaking and entertainment programs before schools, churches, lodges andclubs for more than 40 years. During one engagement in Washington D.C., he and Mrs. Williams were guests of President Harding in the White House. He also spent nine years on the dramatic stage and a number of years in radio work. For yearshe was Santa Claus in Toledo Downtown department stores and his radio SantaClaus was a Christmas feature for more than a decade.
