Cause of Death of Grace Murry

   I posted an image on Facebook asking if anyone could help decipher the cause of death for Grace Murry.  The death occurred in 1899 in Middletown Springs, Rutland, Vermont.

   A number of people have asked for the complete document in order to compare the handwriting, so if you’re interested, here is the link to the document.   I initially looked for a comparison and thought the first letter was “N” as in “Newark.”  Some people have suggested Tuberculosis but there is another Tuberculosis on the page and they’re not the same.  I have no idea at this point what she was doing in Vermont, as her last child was born in 1898 in New Jersey.  I’m sure this is the correct person, as she was born in Sioux City, Iowa and her father was John Copeland.  The once piece of conflicting evidence is the mother’s name which is listed as Minnie.  I have her name as Jennie.  I find it interesting that her husband’s name is not mentioned.   I have tried to contact the local library to see if there is an obituary (haven’t found one online) with no success.

   I’m open to all suggestions.  You can either post your suggestions on Facebook, or email me.

   Thanks for your help.
