Need help determining where William D. Reed/Reid is buried in the New Lebanon, Columbia
County area. In the 1930 US census (Pg: 4B; ED 11-39; New Lebanon Township, Columbia
county, New York) he was living on the Albany-Pittsfield State Rd. He lived by himself and
worked as a night watchman at Mann's Pharmacy. He was 81 years old and born in about
1849/1850. I could not find a record of his death in New York or in MA. He was not a war
veteran. He died February 09, 1931. Any suggestions on where to look? Are their any county
death records from 1931? Were deaths routinely published in local newspapers back then?
