United States of America / Edward and John Coffey, children, of Manhattan, died 1930
« on: Tuesday 31 January 23 18:35 GMT (UK)  »
Was there a newspaper article that would explain how and where these two boys died? Edward was 12 or 13, John was about 7. Edward died 27 August 1930 (source: his Mass card and the family headstone). John died sometime in 1930 (source: the headstone). I am mainly interested in the cause of death.

headstone at findgrave:

I didn't find either of them listed at
The Italian Genealogical Group,, The NYC Historical Vital Records Project,, or at familysearch.

Either I missed them somehow or they died outside city limits. They were both living with their parents in 1930 in Manhattan:

Could they have died together in a summertime accident of some kind somewhere besides New York City?

Also: their mother Margaret (Hughes) Coffey died 3 May 1969 and was buried from a funeral home on Broadway, NYC. (source: a Mass card again.) It's too recent for a death certificate online, but was there an obituary that hinted at her cause of death?

Thank you

United States of America / Michael J Haughey, d 1934, Queens NY

Hi. Did this man have a death notice or obituary?

Michael J Haughey, who died April 10, 1934, in a hospital in Queens. He was living with his son John J. at the time.

The family has a lot of information about him and his children in the US, except for Michael's death. I have found the certificate at the NYC municipal records site with that date on it.

Thank you.

United States of America / Fred Goodsmith, died October 8, 1944, in Georgia
« on: Monday 05 December 22 16:54 GMT (UK)  »
Fred J Goodsmith was born October 9, 1884, in Cleveland, Ohio, and is said to have died October 8, 1944, in Georgia. Did he get a death notice? Does it say where he was buried?

Probably not with his ex wife Gertrude Egert, but is he buried in Hillcrest Cemetery, Bedford Hts, Ohio, with his 2nd wife Dorothy who died "suddenly in Florida" in December 1952? I have her death notice from the Cleveland Press of December 17, 1952.

Thank you.

United States of America / James Crimm, born 1879 in Massachusetts
« on: Wednesday 19 October 22 16:32 BST (UK)  »
Could someone else please take a look for this child? I can't find him anywhere but on this census. I looked on familysearch for his birth, searching for James Cr*m*, with and without a mother's name of Mary, and didn't find him.

1880 Census, Boston
on Northfield St

James Crimm, boarder, age 1, born in Massachusetts, father in Ireland, mother in Mass
Mary F White, 37, married, born in Mass, parents also, keeping house
William H White, son, 13, born in Mass, father in New York, mother in Mass.

I have a James Crimm/Jenkins in Boston (b1854 - d1916), my wife's great grandfather. I wonder if this 1 year old is somehow his son. James was married in November 1880 to Catherine Carrigan.

Thank you.

United States of America / Thomas Dyal and Maria (Dyal) Reed
« on: Tuesday 30 August 22 18:35 BST (UK)  »
Did either of these two people have an obituary? They are brother and sister and I am looking for their parents' names, which are said to be John Dyal and Maria Allbaugh. I have found a Maria Dyal with her family in 1850 so I think I am on the right track.

Thomas Dyal died 17 May 1898, in Topeka, Kansas
Maria (Dyal) Reed died July 28, 1903, in Abilene, Kansas.

Thank you.

United States of America / Dudley Anderson descendants
« on: Thursday 28 April 22 17:17 BST (UK)  »
Are there obituaries for any of these people? I'm looking for descendants of Evelyn (Carroll) Meader. I don't think she had children but want to look further.

her father:
William Dudley Anderson, aka, Robert "Bobbie" Carroll,
born April 23, 1867, Richmond VA
died March 19, 1932, in Chicago.
[his obituary, if there was one, should be interesting]

Evelyn (Carroll) Meader, b 24 August 1904, d 14 March 1936, Chicago, wife of Arthur J Meader.

her husband:
Kankakee County, Illinois Death Index, 1870-1992
Name:   Arthur J Meader
Death Date:   30 Apr 1974
spouse of Jessie Cuperus.

I've seen Arthur Meader's 1940 Census with no children in the household.

I'm still working on Evelyn's mother, Sarah Jacobs aka Lillie Birchfield.
I have her marriage in 1901 in Bell County, Texas, to W D Anderson, in 1920 with Robert Carroll, and in 1930 with Arthur and Evelyn Meader, but nothing else.

Sarah Jacobs and Dudley Anderson were actors/performers. Bobbie Carroll and Lily Birchfield were their stage names.

United States of America / Barrett Earl Hamilton, d 1966
« on: Friday 04 February 22 20:53 GMT (UK)  »
Barrett Earl Hamilton died September 4, 1966, apparently in Buffalo, NY, though living in Cleveland. (He had connections to Buffalo.)
I remember seeing a full obituary for him at the time, with a photo if I am not mistaken. A librarian in Cleveland did not find it in the Cleveland papers, so it might have appeared in a Buffalo paper. This could be the index reference to it, from the rootsweb obituary index, but there might have been more than one.
HAMILTON, Earl; 61; Buffalo NY; Tonawanda News; 1966-9-9; ckalota
Or it could have been in a Pittsburgh paper. He had family in Pittsburgh as well.

Could someone look for it, please. I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.
