John Smith REID born West calder 5 Nov 1890
« on: Friday 17 August 12 17:39 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace the death of John Smith REID ( my grandfathers brother) and his wife ISABELLA (born May 1900 Bathgate Scotland).
They emigrated to the USA in May 1925 with their son and settled in Detroit Michigan and he worked in the Kelsay Hayes wheel plant as an electric welder.
In 1940 they were living at 60 Margaret St West Detroit


Are there any online BMD for michigan that are free

Any help or information about this couple would be really appreciated

Regards

John

Is there anyway of checking the above death of Isabel Reid her birth date is about right ,but i cannot reconcile the B in the name her full name was Isabella Muirhead Annan REID. I have also found another death in Macomb county on 7 Jan 1997 for an Isabella REID.
Is there a way of checking that one.

Best regards

John
