In response to a question posed by Jessica at Jessica's Genejournal blog regarding a free, online Michigan death record project at the Library of Michigan, I found a tutorial describing how to search for the death records and that only a tiny fraction of records are currently online.

Search for Michigan death records 1897 - 1920 here.
I got a response for "Langworthy" and several responses using "John."
