      I'm looking for information about the death of my great-grandfather William Newton Thirlaway, a British merchant navy officer. According to the UK probate documents his body was found 'at the foot of 87th Street' New York on 10th May 1901. He was last seen alive on the 20th March but no further details were given. He had been on the 'Glengoil' in 1900. Any information or help in where to look will be gratefully received.
