Tips & Tricks
Newspapers are wonderful Hometown Records. In addition to looking for obituaries, be sure to look for articles about special events... births, Baptisms/Christenings, weddings and pre-nuptial events (bridal showers, etc.), birthdays (parties), anniversaries, etc.

Don't assume that all children listed in the census belong to the wife listed. This may be a second wife and the children a combination of "his and hers."
[Census]
Check for cemetery records with the church, Sexton and Funeral Directors. Visit the cemetery and take a picture of the tombstone. Check the obituaries in that time frame.
