Not sure what you are looking for from an obit?
If it is about his family, this would be him and his family in the 1905 census. They are living at 427 East 69th Street as you have noted and per the death record.

Death Record: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W9R-6JW

They appear on the right side page.

Still living at 427 East 69th Street.

1910 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M57C-SJP

1930 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X42J-GLJ

It appears Margaret's maiden name was "Flynn".

This appears to be daughter Ellen/Helen's marriage record.

Here is the family in the 1900 census with a son George born 1899.

1900 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MSK6-4KW

George died in 1902. Address listed as 429 E. 69th. He was buried at Calvary Cemetery, same cemetery as listed for Michael in previous posted death record.

Thank you for the above info, I probably have seen most of it before but thank you for looking.

I do not think that findagrave record is him. He was buried in Calvary.

As to why I want his obit. I have all his siblings obits so would like the full pack! I have looked on fultonhistory and chroniclingamerica with no luck.
