Burial

Calhoun City, Calhoun, Mississippi, USA
Description: Calhoun City Cemetery - Garrett Funeral Home - Waynesville, North Carolina

May 2009 - Jerry Harvey (#47117411) generously provided funeral home documentation detailing William's burial at the Calhoun City Cemetery. Jerry searched the cemetery twice. His searches yielded no evidence of a headstone for William Luther Broome. The cemetery office was unaware of a headstone or burial location for William.

Nov 2013 - It seems cousin William was actually buried in Oklahoma!
