Surnames: Drost, Porey
Wondering if someone would be willing to check for a notice for Elsie Irene (DROST) POREY who died in North Adams 7 Apr 2000. According to the rootsweb Obituary Daily Times results, her notice appeared in the Berkshire Eagle 9 Apr 2000. I am in Canada, so am unable to access this information in person.

Thank you for any assistance you may be able to provide.

Regards,
N. Graves

They have a genealogy dept. and have archives of the newspaper. You have the dates so is have of the info. Mass. death index has her death in North Adams and husband Ernest.
S.S. index has her death in Readsboro, Bennington Vt. S.S lists the last place the check was sent so that may be why the place of death is different.
