Trying to solve 100 yr. old mystery. My grandmother, Ota May (Posey) South, died in or around Seattle in 1913. Have never been able to locate any information or gravesite. She was born in Ohio 2/17/1887 and went to Seattle after 1910. Is there anyone who can shed light on how to locate information? Obituaries? Cemetery or Death Records?

Try to look up in findagrave .com or start calling cemetery if you know where she was berried.

She does not appear in this series based on the information you provided. A quick check of the Washington Digital Archives and the BC Provincial Archives also did not come up with anything. She may have lived here (check city directories) but from available evidence did not die here. Good luck in your research.

Thank you for your reply. This has been such a mystery to solve. I think I'll try to approach it from another angle, find (a divorce) or death record in Ohio, as her husband Noble South remarried and that certificate shows him a widower. Hoping he had to prove it through some record. Thanks again!
