There is an Otis Brown age 49 in the Tampa Tribune obituary index, 18 Feb 1936. There is also an Otis Brown listed, age 40, 19 Feb 1936. I suspect this is one person and the there was a missprint on the age. Do you think this could be the Otis Brown you're looking for? I'll make a trip to the library with in the next couple of days, and make a copy of the obituary. Maybe you've gotten lucky and this is your man.

Do you have the full date of death for Tish Habbard. I don't know if any of the 1937 DeFuniak Springs papers have survived, but I would be happy to check in see if there was an obit for her. Maybe an obit for her could give you some clues.
