I am seeking info on Josephine Vaughan that died Dec 1891. Her funeral was at St Marks M E Church, burial unknown. (Are there Church Records)
Josephines Doctors, O. L. Williams & R. G. Williams might have left some records. (Any records)
Mayor F. N. Oliver was Estate Appraiser- (Any Records)
(Was a daughter, Mabelle Vaughan 1882, listed in any of the records) The Girls Co-operative Home opened in 1891 and Mabelle is found there in March 1897. (Maybe Mabelle left some record at the cemetery where Josephine is buried)
Appreciate all help on this line. Doris
