I've been looking for more info on Charles Daniel GARRETT, d. 29 Jan 1913.
The county doesn't seem to have a death certificate on him, the funeral home,
Spill (now Winters), doesn't have a record of him saying a bunch were thrown
away and I'm told Fairview Cemetery is not contactable. Have any ideas?
