Title: Family research
Post by Bob B on 31. Jul 2008 at 11:05

My great grandmother, Ann Bristol died and was buried in Springhill in June 1909. I am attempting to find an obituary for her that may reveal her maiden name.

I checked the Moss Diaries and couldn't find anything in them to help you. If you go to
you will find BMD for many Bristol's. I found the death for Ann but it doesn't list her maiden name. It did list her religion as Catholic so you could try contacting the Catholic Church in Springhill. I don't know how far back Brown's funeral home in Springhill keeps their records but the business has been in the family for generations. That could be another source for you. If her husband was George, 2 children are listed under marriages - Margaret and Ellen (Bristoll). Do you know when her husband died and where he was buried. That may give you the information as well.
You could also look at Irish Family History Foundation for a marriage certificate if they were married in Ireland. If you can determine when and where she married you may be able to find her maiden name that way.
If I find anything else, I will let you know.  Good luck.
