Agnes MacGookin ,  formerly Agnes McIntyre, my great aunt emigrated from Dumbarton ,Scotlad in 1912.
Lived in 748, Collingswood, Camden N.J. I think she died  sometime in the 1960s.
Would appreciate any help in finding information about her later years.

Thank you so much for your swift response to my request.
Have you any suggestions as to where I might find burial or cremation records.

"Relatives and friends are invited to attend"   ???

Agnes seems to have had 2 brothers - John Campbell McIntyre - 18851929 - born 1st  August 1885 - Young's Land, Townend, Dumbarton passed away 1929 - Vittoria Street, Birkenhead.


and Peter Alexander Mcintyre - 18901959 born 18 August 1890 - Newton Mearns, Renfrewshire, Scotland passed away 9 January 1959 - Dumbarton, Dunbartonshire, Scotland.

Can't see either in the USA. 

Checked out 4 sisters of Graham MacGookin - Mary McDermid - Sarah Hutcheon - Joan Halkett - none of which appear to enter the USA.
