Looking for an Obituary
« on: Friday 17 April 20 19:16 BST (UK) »
Hi. I'm wondering if anyone can help me find a obit for this lady please:

Anna Butler born 24th August 1901 & died September 1994 in Neptune, New Jersey. I found the information on Find my Past.

Thank you
The surnames, which I am interested in are; Maternal side: Ryan, Kevin, Grant, Grady, Gleeson, Walsh, Dwyer, Paternal side: O' Dwyer, Woodlock, Rochford - all in Tipperary; and Kelly and Hoynes in Laois.

Ryan, Campbell, Luttrell, Grant, Grahame, Bainbridge and Brown in Queensland, Australia

Tighe in Victoria, Australia.

Grant in Philadelphia, Sullivan and Penny in New York; and Britton in Connecticut

Something is amiss?

SSDI: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J19M-KQ9

The SS archives gives the same info plus her SS number.

But, the NJ death Index list an Annie Butler with the same SSS number Having died 15 Sept 1994 in Neptune, Monmouth, NJ age 82 with DOB as 3 Aug. 1912.

Hello  :)

I believe that the SSDI is the lady I'm after. Her grand-daughter, who is her nearest living relative is applying under the FOIA for the SS application so hopefully something will come of that.

My guess would be that someone's fingers were slightly off on the keyboard & they typed in 12 instead of 01.

Ordinarily, I would recommend contacting the local library to see if they do obituary look-ups or could recommend a newspaper to look in, but they're all closed currently.  Maybe try that when they reopen.   :)

Patience is a virtue - will wait and see when the libraries re-open over there. Hopefully I can end a 12 year long search before this year is out
