2 newspaper look ups for Massachusetts area.
« on: Monday 12 March 18 06:03 GMT (UK) »
Hi there
Can someone with access have a look in old newspaper records for deaths for Thomas Birchenough in 1879 and his brother James Birchenough in 1885.
Thomas died 21st of Aug 1879.
James died 21st of Oct 1885.
My fingers crossed on this one.
David.

It looks like James died in Boston, Massachusetts and Thomas died in Providence, Rhode Island.  Are those locations where they lived prior to their deaths?

Yes, that's correct with what I know, I have there burial details as to cemetery etc ( no photo of grave ) but think that there is a very good chance that there may have been an article in a local paper for at least one of these men, mostly James who had done a lot of stone carvings in the boston area and had worked on the cathedral in Boston as a stonemason/carver.
