Comments:  I now know why I was unable to find her obit in the newspapers…..  the newspaper spelled the name as "Puntz" and they also indicated that they were married in 1905.  Oops.. so much for proof reading.  I corrected the date and the spelling in this obit transcription. Ida Caroline Moeri Verus died in 1910, he later remarried prior to 1920.  No idea to cause of her death, but she had a daughter in/around 1904.
