The death certificate on Charles Vester Brown states that he died April 27, 1956 in Dewitt State Hospital in Placer County California. The hospital no longer exists.I contacted the Health Department, they requested documents from me to prove I was related to Charles V. Brown.I provided the documents.They said if I did not hear from them it meant due to privacy laws they could not give me information.It has been four years without response from them.All I asked for was where Charles V. Brown lived before he was in the hospital, who could I contact regarding family.My only interest was genealogy.I know when, where he was born, I know who his parents were.I thought one of his descendants would know who his great grandfather, etc. was. Where do I look for information in Placer County.I know he was there in 1910, he and his wife are on the census, after that I could not find him.I know he lived in California in the 1940's.Any suggestions as to how I proceed? Thanks.
