I tried to confirm the spellings of the surnames of the the attending physician and the certifying physican on the Death Certificate by searching for their names online.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a convenient way to verify the spellings of their surnames.  One could be McNully or McNally or McNulty.  The other looks like Said or Saiu.
