The following is not an obituary in the true sense, but does indicate what happened to Adelbert Outman.
Source: The Appleton Post-Crescent newspaper, Appleton, Wisconsin, March 29, 1923 edition:


Alpena, Mich. -- Fire of undetermined origin Thursday morning destroyed the Alpena co. infirmary, and caused the death of one inmate, while another is missing. Twenty-eight other aged persons were taken from the building and given temporary shelter in a farm house.

Charles Rudd, 70, was carried from the burning building and died within a few minutes, either from exposure in the sub zero temperature or fright. Adelbert Outman, 69, is unaccounted for.

**There is a Death Record for Adelbert Outman located in Alpena County, Michigan showing cause of death as being burned to death, but since there is no Cemetery Record, it can be assumed the body was never found.

George W. Outman, one of Athens' Quintet of Gettysburg Survivors and an honored and respected citizen, passed away at his home in this village Monday morning after an illness of only a few days. The Funeral was held from the Congregational Church Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Gadd officiating. Interment in Burr Oak Cemetery.

George W., son of Jonah and Orenda Outman, was born in Medina County, Ohio, June 8, 1842 and died December 7, 1914, aged 72 years, 5 months and 20 days. When seven years of age he came with his parents to Michigan. When 22 years of age he was united in marriage to Polly Wilcox. To this union ten children were born, six of whom survive him; Frank of Kalamazoo; Melvin of Leonidas; George of Chicago; Claude of Battle Creek; Mrs. Louis Snyder and Mrs. Louis Rench of Athens. In 1861 on August 12, he enlisted as a veteran volunteer in the 7th Michigan Infantry, Company I.

He was one of a family of ten children, one brother (Hugh) and one sister (Mrs. Geo. Mellen) survive him.

Since the item concerning Mrs. Geo. Outman was printed, a change for the worse came, and on Wednesday evening, less than four days after the death of her companion, she too passed away, grief over her bereavement doubtless greatly hastening the end. The Funeral is to be held Friday afternoon at 1:30 at the Congregational Church. The same Minister, Pall Bearers and Singers who assisted at Mr. Outman's funeral will act. Obituary notice next week.

Glenn P. Outman, 41, of 823 S. Pleasant St., was fatally injured in a car-truck accident on S. Cicero Drive, Chicago, early Wednesday morning, it was reported today.

According to information received by Belding police chief William Crystler from the Chicago police department, Outman apparently tried to avoid a car that was passing improperly and his truck jackknifed against the cab, crushing the driver.

Extruded officals said that Outman, a regular driver for the factory for the past three years, left Belding Tuesday night with a load of brass for a Chicago customer.

Chicago police have arrested Walter Johnson of Robbins, Ill., the driver of the car involved in the accident. According to information disclosed by Crystler, the Illinois man is being charged with reckless homicide to include improper passing, drunk driving, and property damage to municipal property. The Johnson vehicle reportedly broke off a water hydrant in the collision also.

Johnson was taken to Loretta hospital where he was reported suffering from shock. An inquest was held at 9:30 a.m. at the Westown Funeral Home on S. Cicero Ave., in Chicago today (Thursday).

Born in Edmore to Mr. and Mrs. Ira Outman on March 20, 1916, Outman married the former Lucille Thomas in Belding on March 18, 1946. His wife and his mother, who now lives in Seymour, Ind., survive.

Other survivors include two brothers, Leon, of Columbus, Ind., and Ira, Jr., of Belding; a sister, Mrs. Arthur Vorheis of Bath; two uncles, Perry and Jay Outman of Belding; and one aunt, Mrs. Julia Rench of Union City.

Funeral services will be held at the Ellis Funeral Chapel at 2 p.m. Saturday. Rev. H. S. Ellis will officiate. Burial will be in River Ridge cemetery.
