Tim, this is new info for me and very helpful. Thank you!

Joseph Brower Sr died at St Vincent's Hospital in Birmingham, AL. There is a West Laurel Hill Cemetery at 215 Belmont Avenue, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004. According to Wikipedia, "West Laurel Hill was designed as a rural cemetery and is a 'sister' institution to the notable Laurel Hill Cemetery nearby in Philadelphia."

I checked at for a grave there with the name "Brower." Nothing turned up, but the website's records are probably only partially complete. I will eventually contact the cemetery.

Any other ideas for how to find out more information about Joseph Brower Sr.'s father William Brower?
