From a Feb.5, 2016 BDN obit page article from the Buffalo News:

A woman named Hannah Palmer who died 76 years ago finally got her obituary. She had been buried in an unmarked pauper’s grave. Her family finally connected all the dots of her life and death. It was quite an interesting article. It also went into detail how cemeteries used to have only occasional requests from people looking for long lost ancestors, but now they get multiple inquiries a week.
