Dear Jeanette

I found your g-grandfather, same occupation, in 1930 US Census, on www.ancestry.com

Name:               Oliver C Land
Age:               68 years

Estimated birth year:               1861

Birthplace:               Georgia
Relation to Head-of-house:               Head
Race:               White
Home in 1930:               Fort Lauderdale, Broward, Florida
Occupation:               Night Watchman, County Machine Shop
              
Image Source:               Year: 7 April 1930
Census Place: Fort Lauderdale, Broward, Florida; Roll: T626_307; Page: 8A; Enumeration District: 7; Image: 0730.
Death Certificate: http://www.rootsweb.com/~flbrowar/howto.html
Ask a Librarian (Broward County Library): http://www.broward.org/library

There were no family members listed with Oliver C Land; next in list were all prisoners. You can find details for requesting a death certificate from the HowTo web site above, telling the authorities exact date of birth, and died after 7 April 1933. I checked FLDI for earliest on hand death recprds: 1936, 1937 & 1938 --- found none.

If you are able to find the exact date of death, you might "Ask a Librarian" from the above web site. The FLDI is not cumulatiely indexed, and so it is an unreasonable taks, to read microfilm without knowing date of death.

Hope this may help.
