Yes, I'll transfer it. I travel the Gulf Coast, from Texas to Florida, but S. Tx has always been home. I'm in CC about once a month on business.
I'm a big believer in the findagrave idea - while researching my own genealogy, I've hit brick walls when I just had no further way of figuring out date of death, or location, etc. The amazing findagrave volunteers who unknowingly posted my family members solved so many unknowns, even added family I didn't know about previously - that I just decided to make volunteering as a photographer/researcher my avocation. Hearing from people such as yourself - who were looking for the final resting place of a family member, when documents and research just can't get it done - keeps me going.

RE: Joseph A. Williams
Hello Joe,

Glad this bit of info helps you. I've been documenting the Rose Hill cemetery for a couple of years now, one section at a time. The one where your grandfather is buried is one of the older sections. Based on the number of burials with Sept 14th 1919 death date, I realized that they must have all been hurricane victims. I'd bet there are 20 to 40 with that death date just within a 50 ft radius. I'm not surprised that the State couldn't help you with the transition from burial on the beach in a temporary grave to final burial in the cemetery. I wonder if the local genealogy group could have... did you ever try and contact them? or the public library? I've found the library has an enormous storehouse of information that is difficult to access unless you actually GO to the library. BTW - they have an online index for obituaries. If you find the names you're looking for, they will scan it and email it to you for free.

I'd also recommend you call the Rose Hill cemetery, and see if they have additional info on when your grandfather's body was moved. They keep excellent records and at a very minimum, they will have a date of burial.

Best Regards,

RE: Eli Cornett
Good to hear from you Joe. This cemetery is about 15 miles away, when and if the weather is better, I will look for a second headstone. The temps have been below zero here at night and not warming up above freezing for the last couple of weeks. I will put your request on my list and get to it as soon as possible. As for a will I have no knowledge of one. I am from the line of Archelous Cornett.
