    Seeking death certificate for Miona Miller

    Ms Jenifer Newbie

      Hi, I am seeking the death record of my grandmother, Miona Miller, who died while she was a Tuberculosis patient at Henryton State Hospital in 1934 in Carroll County, MD.  I have searched state and local records for her death certificate but have not been successful. She is not buried in Maryland, I'm told that my Grandfather took her back to South Carolina, where they migrated from maybe ten years earlier, to be buried. I would like to find her death record, and possibly her care while there. I am running into a brick wall. The Henryton Tuberculosis Sanatorium, as it was called then, was built specifically for African American patients and I'm afraid maybe they did not use the best record-keeping practices during that time. Any guidance is appreciated.
