Looking for info on Great Aunt
« on: Monday 14 January 19 17:40 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I was aiming to do research on my great aunt Mary Elizabeth Larkin but was only able to find her birthday and state she was located in (28 APR 1905 / Pennsylvania). I've been trying to find her death certificate or at least the date / place where she died for more of a better picture, but all I'm bringing up is a single census record of her existence. I know she was married on were married on 5/15/28 to a Harry Bennett and divorced on 6/10/35 if that helps.

If anyone would be able to assist with any additional information or at least a whereabout, it'd be appreciated! Her parents were William James Larkin (09 OCT 1882 - 14 NOV 1959) and Mary Larkin (26 NOV 1885 - 30 NOV 1957) both in Pennsylvania.

Thank you in advance!

That's them. That's the only entry I could find relating to Mary on there.

I am not sure. I know she married Harry Bennett and divorced him on those dates but that is all I was able to uncover initially.

Interesting. I do my ancestors lived in the Philadelphia / Delaware County area. So those could be a best shot. I do know there's a Mullan on her mother's side, but that just may be coincidence

Oh also, I do know there is a death certificate for Mary's mother, they had the exact same first and middle name. Got confused on that one.
