Hi team

Is someone able to check newspapers to see if the Harriet CASKEY who died at Tonawonda, NY state on 20 October 1950 might be this same lady please.  Her husband was John Benjamin CASKEY and she had 3 daughterS.  She was last seen on the 1940 census in Buffalo.

Many thanks

Bitzar.

Yes, that appears to be her.

There was a death notice  in the newspaper on 10/21/1950 giving her maiden name as "Isley".

Thanks so much for the info.  Phoebe was the sister of my gr gr gr grandfather.  He came to Australia and she went to Canada (after a short stint in Australia too).  We never knew what became of her until very recently.
