BJM -- I hate to disappoint you but unless you are VERY VERY lucky this isn't a "layup." In fact it may be virtually impossible for a non-relative to find the information, inasmuch as many states don't allow non-relatives to find death certificates. Here would be the general process: 1. identify where George Bayne or Raymond Bayne died. State is essential; city or town is much much better. 2. identify date range when George or Raymond died. State death certificates are virtually never online -- you'll end up writing to the Secretary of State or keeper of vital statistics to get what you need. But you'll need (1) and possibly (2). 3. Did either live long enough to have a Social Security number? If so, do a Google search for "Social Security Death Index" and see if you can find them in that database. 4. Identify where George or Raymond lived in 1920 or 1930 -- the last years for which the U.S. Census data has been released. The only case in which is search is a "layup" and not a "full court shot" is when someone has beat you to it and posted a family tree somewhere like Rootsweb. Even then, long experience tells me that you have to be very careful about taking information from an existing family tree as accurate, unless you can find confirming documents.
