Rose Dorothy Gillick
« on: Friday 11 January 19 09:06 GMT (UK) »
I am attempting to find the death of Rose Dorothy Gillick who was born in Australia on 29 Sept. 1886, emigrated to USA in the 1920's and was became a US citizen. She returned to Australia in 1955 with the intention of retiring.
She apparently left Australia on the "Pioneer Gem" on 13 June 1956 presumably to return to USA and we have been unable to find any record of her returning to Australia after that date. She apparently died in USA and the only other clue we have is that she spent a considerable time living in New York.

Previous threads, only death place undiscovered

The US census only goes up to the 1940's due to privacy restrictions.

Rose Dorothy Gillick with the birth date 28/9/1886  does not appear on the USA SSDI (social security death index) which was up and running by 1962 ish

Didn't realise there were FOUR previous threads  ::)

Interesting address. The area has been redeveloped during my lifetime but seems that 104 Clinton Ave. was still standing a few years ago (the newspaper site doesn't allow me to see the content because I'm in the U.K.)-
Stamford Advocate, 6 Oct.2016: Another historic Stamford home bites the dust - For 18 years, the historic mansion at 102-104 Clinton Ave. served as transitional housing for homeless young men who, despite ...

Added- I believe it may be the green house shown on Streetview image in 2014- LINK
Unfortunately moving closer along the street the next image is from 2017 and house has been replaced by a very modern building.

This death certificate would not be public until 2034, so uncovering where this Rose Gillick is, might be the answer. Possibly someone would have to actually pay for it to get an answer.

I'd think this was her

She may have been cremated or buried

If the Mrs. Rose Gillick mentioned frequently in N.Y. papers is her then it's possible her mother died in Cavan in 1943.
