Death Certificate: Eliza Osgood Vanderbilt Webb

Ancestry.com recently announced the availability of Vermont vital records.  Knowing that some of the Vanderbilt family made their way to Vermont, I immediately went to go check for them.  Sure enough, I found this death certificate for Eliza Osgood Vanderbilt Webb (1860-1936).   Eliza was one of the Commodore’s granddaughters; sister to Biltmore Estate owner, George Washington Vanderbilt.

More about the databases available can be found over on Randy’s blog.

Update: Michael has pointed out that her death certificate actually indicates that she was widowed, not divorced; I’d misread the placement of the check mark, and, upon reviewing the information I already had I do see that her husband died in 1926.  The information above has now been edited to reflect this. Thanks Michael!
