Iím researching my Aunt, Mrs. Beatrice Wakeford Monroe. She was born March 17, 1892 in Michigan and married and lived in Pontiac, MI. But her death certificate indicates she died in Asheville, NC on June 26, 1923 of Pulmonary Tuberculosis. Iím hoping someone can help me determine where she lived in Asheville/Buncombe County from perhaps a city directory or phone book. And if possible a copy of anything such as an obituary published in one of the local newspapers. Her husbandís name was Dr. John Monroe. I donít know if she worked in Asheville or was there for TB treatment and perhaps died in the hospital or what. But, Iím trying to learn more about how/why she was in NC and about her in general.
