I'm hoping someone in the area can look for obits on these two individuals.

George Joseph THOMAS was the last lighthouse keeper at the Sea Girt Lighthouse.

He was b. 21 Feb 1876 Canarsie, Brooklyn, Kings Co, NY to William Henry Thomas, 2nd & Eliza Caroline Brown. He was the widower of Minnie nee DeBow who died in 1931 @ Shinnecock Lighthouse, Hampton Bays, Long Island shortly before George's assignment to Sea Girt.

The group at Sea Girt supplied me with the date of 22 Jan 1963 for his DOD.

I believe he stayed around the Ocean Grove - Sea Girt area, in retirement or possibly a bit further north in Asbury Park where daughter Lucy lived so probably died in one of those locations, too. I'd like to get his obit if one was published primarily to learn where he might have been buried although there could be other information in the obit about his family that I haven't found yet also.

George's daughter Lucy Caroline THOMAS is the second obit I'd love to have if one were published.

Lucy was b. 10 Nov 1911 Brooklyn, Kings Co, NY & never married. She lived in Asbury Park, Ocean Twp, NJ as an adult and died there as far as I know. Her DOD is 09 Nov 1993.

I'm also hoping that an obit for her will tell me not only where she was buried but shed a bit more light on her sister Alice who wound-up in the Hampton, VA area after discharge from the Army - WW II.

Thanks.
