Looking for the date of death of Mrs. Irene Stuart LIMERICK. At the Old Courthouse Museum in Vicksburg I found a clipping of her obituary which said she died in Natchez, where she had lived for several years. The clipping had a dateline of April 25 but no year or name of the newspaper. In the 1910 census she was living with a daughter in Fayette.  My mother said her grandmother visited them after her youngest brother was born in Sept., 1918.  I assume that Irene had moved to Natchez to live with her son John A. Limerick, who was married to Jane Conner.Can anyone help me? Thanks.
