Death record look up and help finding Lawton family members
Posted by: MARY (ID *****5865) Date: November 21, 2003 at 02:45:21

I need help unscrambling a puzzle. It would seem that there was more than one Charles Gilbert Lawton alive in the late 1800's/early 1900's, and that they were related.

I know where my great grandfather died, and when...but need to know if his death record lists anything that will further aid in sorting out the mess we have in our family records.

Charles Gilbert Lawton
died:July 18, 1920
Rapides Parish, Louisiana

would someone please copy down what is in his death record for me and send that information to me via email?

I know of no other way to do any more research on this line without that information, and can not afford to send away for an authorided copy of this record. Any help rendered would be so very greatly appreciated.


Also of note is that Charles was visiting his sons in Alexandria at the time of his death. One son was Nelson B Lawton...and other son was Gilbert P Lawton...dont know which son he was visiting at the time. Both sons were living in Alexandria at the time. Have found the family of Gilbert...but would like to find more about the family of his mother was the same woman as my my line.
