Hi Jenevia,
This is a stinker! I was born nd raised in Midland and never heard of this cemetery. I checked Find-a-Grave, Internment.net and Midland Co. USGenWeb; nothing. I did find a website that talked about someone being buried there and checked the death certificate; yep, it said Twilight Gardens in the 1970's (and I was there then). I'm thinking that it's an area in one of the large cemeteries, such as Resthaven or Fairview. You know, how they have the various sections with names, such as "Baby Land" or "Shady Glen."

My best recommendation is for you to call or contact Ellis Funeral Home in Midland. You don't say what year the burial is, but Ellis is one of the oldest in Midland (if not the oldest). They are also the funeral home on the death certificate I saw. They are truly nice folks, so I'm sure they would be able to clear it up.

Here's a website for them that includes a phone number.

Good luck and let me know what you find!
Andrea
