Help with details in US death record based in Manhattan
« on: Monday 10 June 24 23:04 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

I'm looking for some help with a couple of fields in a Manhattan US death record, I have attached the full death record and the section I am struggling with. What I know is that they died of insolation during the 1896 New York heat wave.

Place of Death: Onislylum 1tr
Last place of Residence: 230 E 44
Class of Dwelling: Unenin?
Indirect cause of death: ?alon

Please forgive the terrible guesses!

Thanks,
Kris

Yes, I like "Tenement"

Very sloppy writing - lots of abbreviations, and doesn't know how to cross his "T"s  :)

Thanks Erato, couldn't see that at all but it makes sense now a lot of sloppy letters in there.
