Obituary Wanted Philadelphia 1928 Please
« on: Thursday 12 October 06 21:17 BST (UK) »
Hi Guys,

I have really stumbled on something big here after having no luck for the best part of a year in my search for my Great Uncle Alexander and his wife Agnes who emigrated from Scotland to Philadelphia.

Agnes died on February 18th, 1928, at home, of lobar pneumonia.  Alexander was with her when she died.  They lived at 2053 East Russell Street in Philadelphia. She was 46 years  and 5 months old when she passed.  Her occupation was housewife......mother was Helen Pollock and father was Hugh Bowie.  The initals of the hospital are P.C. H.  (Philadelphia City Hospital).  She passed away at 6:50 PM.

I would really appreciate it if someone was able to look up the newspaper of that time to see if an obituary was published.  It may give me a further lead in my search for Alexander.

Wishing you all the best from Deepest Darkest Lanarkshire Scotland
