New Bedford City Directory gives Date of Death

We knew from census records that Pierre Nolan had died between 1930, where he is listed as head of household, and 1940 where his wife, Laura, is head of household and listed as a widow.
Newspaper searches did not yield any information, but a search in the New Bedford, MA, city directories  answered the question. Here, in the 1932 issue, the actual date of death is given.

What a cool way to find a death date! Just goes to show you how helpful those city directories are.
