Hi there! I'm looking for the obituary of my great-grandfather, which might be listed in the 1000 Islands Sun or the Watertown Daily Times...or both.

John Petrie (m. Kathleen Dobbins) died in March of 1939 in Alexandria Bay, NY. I will get the exact date and post it.

I know very little about him, and I hope the obit will include things like names of parents or sibs, where and when he was born, what he was interested in...things like that.

I don't necessarily need a copy, I'd just like to know what it says. Does anyone have access to that kind of info...or know how I can get it?

I do get back to Jefferson County any guidance at all would be appreciated.
