[Osborne Cully’s Death Notice Transcribed]
Sept 25, 1937
The Baltimore Afro-American
Worcester, Mass-Osborne Cully
died last week at his home near Clinton.
Since I do not have exact dates of their deaths, I can pretty much estimate. Gertrude was buried on August 22, 1936. It was customary during this time that my family was buried by the third day, so approximately Gertrude died on August 19, 1936. Of course I will need to order a death certificate to confirm the date.
Osborne Cully most likely died between September 12 and the 18th of 1937 as the death notice states he died last week and the newspaper was dated on September 25, 1937. Knowing the proximity of Osborne’s death will allow me to order his death certificate with a lot more ease.
Osborne was born on March 29, 1899 in Worcester, Massachusetts. He was a master electrician and attended the Boys Trade School graduating top in his class. Osborne’s parents were Ambrose Elander Cully and Nora Ann Gilliam.
Gertrude Louis Hayes was born on April 22, 1894. Her parents were Charles A Hayes and Henrietta Gray.
