Edward McMahan's cause of death #usa


Steve Pickoltz
 

Edward McMahon was born about 1888 I think in NYC.  He died Dec. 9, 1927 in Manhattan, NY, cert # 27504.  He married my aunt Rose Bernstein on July 20, 1927 in Manhattan, NY.  It appears he was not Jewish, but my aunt was.  Since his marriage to my aunt was short (about 4 months), I know nothing about him or his cause of death, where buried or HOW THEY MET.  It was never spoken of in my family.
 
Is there anyone who could fill in some of this missing information.  I am the only living relative of my aunt, and the above is ALL I know about their relationship.

The death certificate record on Familysearch has his name as Edward McMann: 
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W1T-1BX?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=MB44-9VY

That will have the cause of death, and where he is buried, and address at time of death.

On FamilySearch, if you look in the upper right corner of the above pages, you will see that there is a family tree for Edward B. McMahon, with links to other FamilySearch records. And as might be expected with a name like McMahon, this person was not Jewish. His NYC birth record has both of his parents born in Ireland:
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W3C-QCS?from=lynx1UIV8&treeref=MB44-9VY

You never know, but the persons who have contributed to this tree on FamilySearch may know something about the couple and how they met, so you could try contacting them. I suspect that the couple is also in trees on Ancestry, and contacting the owners of those trees could be fruitful. [My track record contacting owners of trees is about 90% no response, but the 10% who do respond are usually the ones who have facts about individuals].

Some other ways to determine how the couple might of met is to check the addresses on their marriage certificate, to see how close they lived to each other. Also, check to see what occupations they both list from various records, which might give a clue as to how they crossed paths. Then again, they may simply have met on the subway.
