Brooklyn
Kings County (Brooklyn)

My great grandfather. His obituary appeared in the Brooklyn Eagle and it said that Joshua Rands was buried at Evergreens Cemetery. His son William Arthur Wells is also buried there and Joshua's wife Francenia Norris Wells is buried there as well. I can find none of this family in your online records. There were a number of Norris family members and Wells family members from this same family.
