Mare T Hammond born 1919 died 1922 in Bellevue Hospital, New York from burns after her nightwear caught fire.

Buried at Queens Cemetary, New York.

Anyone got any good ideas where I could find out more information about this, newspapers etc?

Thanks

Linda

Linda, you might try googling for the main public library in Queens, if that is the borough where her family lived.

(I recently contacted the Brooklyn public library and the response from local studies department was excellent - they gave me a link to the online Brooklyn newspaper records and also supplied other information.)
