Jewell & Rob Franklin Simmons
I noticed you had added a picture of the headstone for Rob and Jewell Simmons to Jewell's memorial page. I was wondering if you might add it to Rob Franklin Simmon's memorial page as well? Thank you.

RE: Muniz. Epolito E.
Bright Funeral Home is indeed still in Silver City (210 W. College Avenue - Telephone: 388-1911).

I contacted Bright Funeral Home today. According to the gentleman I spoke with, they do not have any information on burial locations and I was referred back to St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church. (a catch-22 scenario!).

I may be running into Silver in the next day or two (I live in Santa Clara / A.K.A.: Central) if my schedule permits and try to do a recon of the cemetery. Its been 32 years since the burial and it would be extremely rare that a funeral marker would last that long.
