Surnames: Marsh, Dahl, Dehl
Have you seen these?

1920 Federal Census, she gives her birthplace as New Townland, OC.

Source: Year: 1920; Census Place: Kent, Putnam, New York; Roll: T625_1256; Page: 1A; Enumeration District: 194; Image: 420.

NYS 1915 census, they are living with mother-in-law, Louise Dahl. Usually that means she is m-i-l to head of household, George but see 1910 census.

Source: New York State Archives, Albany, New York, State Population Census Schedules, 1915; Census Place: Election District 10, Assembly District 01, North Hempstead, Nassau, 10.

1910 Federal Census, mother (?) Louise Dahl and a niece with them.

Source: Year: 1910; Census Place: West Brookfield, Worcester, Massachusetts; Roll: T624_630; Page: 9A; Enumeration District: 1840; Image: ; FHL microfilm: 1374643

BUT, the 1900 census indicates Louise is George's mother; George is a widower.

Source: Year: 1900; Census Place: Manhattan, New York, New York; Roll: 1120; Page: 2B; Enumeration District: 0890; FHL microfilm: 1241120

The death certificate should give you the burial place. It can be ordered from the Municipal Archives or Family Search (free).

Death indexes at IGG only go through 1948 so, if Elizabeth died after that, her death is not indexed above. However, since George died before 1940, you might try one of these for him; it's likely they are buried together and a call to the cemetery can give you more information on Elizabeth as well. Or you might just want to take a chance and order certificates for both.

I believe another poster suggested the website Fulton History for an obit although it does not have all newspapers for all areas.

Hope this helps.
