Based on Library of Congress information

The Decatur Daily Review was a newspaper published by Review Pub. Co., running from 1891 to 1917; it continued the issue numbering from the Morning Review, which ran from 1888 to 1891, also published by Review Pub. Co. Continuation of issue numbering followed from The Daily Review published by W. J. Mize & Co. (1886-1888), Morning Review and The Decatur Morning Review published by Jack & Mize (1884-1886 and 1883-1884, respectively). Continuation of issue numbering stretches farther back with The Morning Review, a publication of S. S. Jack (1881-1883); Decatur Daily Review published by William H. Bayne (1870's to 1881); and finally The Decatur Local Review published by Alfred Wuensch (1873 to 1870's). Thus, there appears to be an unbroken issue count from 1873 through 1917 through a variety of titles and publishers.

Miscellaneous other sources

For instance, the database linked from Source:Daily Review (Decatur, Illinois) has holdings up to 1919. has archived issues of The Decatur Daily Review from 1878 to 1980. The "Decatur Public Library Collections" available via FamilySearch indicates that part of the collection is a set of obituary indexes from Decatur Daily Review from 1879 to 2007; this index is represented separately in WorldCat via OCLC 866779386.

According to Wikipedia, Daily Review (evening edition) and Herald (morning edition) merged operations in 1931, but kept the two publications separate. In an acquisition in 1979, the two titles were merged into one, Herald & Review.
