By name and location, this might be your great grandmother?

Start by getting your grandmother’s death certificate.

thank you  I was able to see her surname and social security and will start there.
The death certificate should have her parents names. Social security application often have the parents names a well, but not always. The social security administration is quite slow in responding to requests like these.
