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

The above Isabella Reid was born in 1917, much later than yours.


Maybe a slight idiosnycrasy in the Michigan death record that "B" was the middle initial. The SSDI didn't give a middle initial.

Isabel Reid
Born 6 Mar 1900 and died Feb 1982
Last Residence: 48021  Eastpointe, Macomb, Michigan.
SSN was issued in Michigan (1956)

The border crossing in reply 3 gave her birth date and the address matched the 1940 census.

Thanks Sandra

for clearing that up for me. I would love to know what happened to her husband i can only presume that due to the name John Reid being common we will not find him. Only chance would have been if he used his full name John smith REID

Best Regards

John

Having the birth date meant we could check the SSDI - however, afraid he did not show on the SSDI (Social Security Death Index) which was up and running by about 1962, so that would lead me to believe John died before 1962  :'(

In regards to John's post about John S. Reid and Isabella Reid's death, I concur that Sandra's post of the dates are correct. I am John and Isabella's granddaughter. In the late 70's, I visited John and Cecilia Bookless frequently. If you would like to know any more, please contact me via message.
