Your Father David Parker
I'm sorry to hear about your father.

If I may ask, have you tried contacting Mobile Public Library Local History & Genealogy 704 Government St , Mobile, AL 36602

I noted that the mortuary is now closed. I didn't know what "removal" meant so I googled it and I got his information:

"Removal" does not mean only the body being moved to another county, it
can also mean it is being shipped to another state. It means the
body/remains are being removed from that original mortuary to another
location. The original mortuary is following someone's instructions and
arranging for the body/remains to be shipped (removed) to wherever
someone has instructed it to be sent - this is usually at the request of
a family member.

If the deceased person was a veteran or military person or someone
entitled to be interred in a military cemetery, it could mean sending
the body/remains to a specified military cemetery. But it can mean
sending the body/remains to another city, county, state, etc.

The death certificate should show the name and address of the original
mortuary and where and when the remains were sent. The original
mortuary should have on file complete details as to where they were

If the body was cremated, the certificate will show that and the place
where the remains went. Sometimes it will show a family member's name.

If the death was some time ago, that mortuary may no longer exist under
the name on the death certificate. It may have been taken over by
another firm, but usually the location is the same."

It seems that there are others searching for records as well from this mortuary. I saw this thread on ancestry (found it via google dot com). Here is the link to it:

I also came across this as well:

I thought I'd share this information with you and hope you find out where he is.

Peace be with you.

RE: Eugene Edgar Sanders
Miss Pat,
You are quite welcome. God bless your heart, I am grateful you are a patient soul. If you tell me your daddy's name I will keep an eye out. Any info you can provide would help. This site is great due to all who help connect the dots. Some people, my own mama included, do not like all the dots connected, but you know the old saying "O, while you live, tell truth and shame the devil!"
Thank you for all your hard work, time and dedication to making this site a great resource for all. Miss Robin

my "step" grandfather
I am trying to find my step grandfather in Lauren's, S.C. My grandmother was Ella "Pearl" Huggins Putnam and Mr. Putnam died in 1937. Some time after that my grand mother married Mr. Ball. Now that I am doing the family history, no one that is still alive knows what his first name was. My grandmother is married next to her 1st husband, Albert Putnam, but I cannot find Mr. Ball. If anyone can help me it would be appreciated. I know she had no married Mr. Ball before 1940 as the census shows that only she and my dad were living together.

RE: Infant sligh
No bother.
Yes, to an extent.
His mother, Carolyn M. Caldwell Sligh's paternal Grandfather is my 5th great grandfather. She is just a distant cousin.

RE: Infant sligh
I thought the same thing. But the dates match up with the death record and the headstone, and I can't find a death certificate for Claude Olin Jr.
