Looking for help with research in Goliad. My husband's great-grandmother, Sarah Young, is buried in Glendale Cemetery in Goliad, but there are no dates on the headstone. She was married to Charles Henry Young, who we are also searching for and do not know where he is buried. Sarah and Charles were living in Refugio county in 1910 with their 3 sons, Robert, Henry and William. Sometime between 1910 and 1917, Sarah died, and Charles married her sister, Laura in 1917 in Refugio county. Laura is shown as a widow in the 1920 census, living in Goliad with stepson William, so we are assuming Charles died between 1917 and 1920. William and Laura are also buried in Glendale Cemetery along with Sarah. Family stories also say that Laura lived with a woman named Nettie Elkins, and they attended a Methodist church outside of Goliad (Sargo?). We've heard mention of an Elkins Ranch, and also of a Delany Ranch, where supposedly William worked, but have no further information. Refugio and Goliad counties both tell me they have no death records for either Sarah or Charles. Would anyone know of funeral homes in Goliad for that time period (1910-1920)and also if there may be any obituary indexes?
