+5 votes

Evalina Nora (Barrett) Green died tragically as a young mother leaving her daughter Lottie who was adopted by Evalina’s parents. We have her gravestone & cemetery with dates. However we need a death record or obituary article. We believe she died in child birth. Any help in researching how she passed would be greatly appreciated. We need help searching for her and need more eyes to find the elusive obituary; this is a good place to start http://nyshistoricnewspapers.org./

Also see her gravestone https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/131829959/evalina-nora-green

Who could we also contact to obtain her death record such as which town clerk or resource?

Have you checked Fulton history ?

That is a great site, especially for NY.

I have found much the same thing from my own research with numerous females in their 20's having died young, all married, presumably in childbirth.  Early death was common until recent times for both male and female.  If you fell seriously ill, you were simply expected to die. It makes you count your blessings to be living in a time of major medical advances. The link to Fulton History mentioned earlier is a good source for newspaper obits.
