I discovered this death certificate by searching on the surname “McEntire” at FamilySearch (see my post about “Finding GA Death Certificates from 1928 to 1930“). I immediately recognized the parents’ name and a quick look in my database confirmed my suspicion that I did not know about this daughter.
Since Laura is a new person, almost every bit of data on this death certificate1 is new to me.
