Paul 5413, Thank you for the update. Indeed you are correct the death record info. is only as good as the knowledge of the person giving the information. I as well thought the marriage record should be more accurate.
Checked the Massachusetts Town and Vital Records 1620 -1988.
Frank Mitchell parents listed as:
William Mitchell and Catherine Mitchell
Catherine Frost parents listed as:
George Frost and Margaret Frost
I find nothing for Catherine Frost in US, UK/Ireland.
Thanks for your help. Pettibone 1742
