Treasure Chest Thursday – Delilah (McCormack) Addy and her death certificate

Hi, for today’s Treasure Chest Thursday post, I would like to share with you the death certificate of my great grand-aunt, Delilah Elizabeth (McCormack) Addy. I have been “after” her almost since I started researching back in the early 1990s.

I don’t know why I never tried to obtain her death certificate until recently. I requested her death certificate on 26 May 2013 and just received it on Tuesday.

I HEREBY CERTIFY, that I attended deceased from March 12 1905 to March 18 1905
and that death occurred on the date stated above as
8 P.M. To the best of my knowledge and
belief the cause of death was as follows;

(Signed) Henry A. Kurtz M.D.
March 20 1905 (Address) Schenectady

PLACE OF BURIAL OR REMOVAL                                DATE OF BURIAL
Vale Vault                                                                             March 21 1905

UNDERTAKER                                                                     ADDRESS
Timeson & Frank                                                                184 State Str

I really didn’t learn anything that I didn’t already know except for the name of the informant, Lura (Vae) Addy and the exact time of her death. Lura is Delilah’s 18-year-old daughter. I just wonder why Delilah’s husband, Smith wasn’t the informant. Could he have been at work?  We may never know! I was hoping, by ordering this death certificate, that I would find out her place of birth. Oh well, next time!

Thanks for stopping by!
