Sandra, Thanks for your reply. I have tried but haven't been successful yet in finding the obits archives in the newspapers - all I find is back to 2003. Maybe I just don't know the correct way to get to the older archives but will keep trying. Also thanks for your reply on Dec 9 concerning my post about Sanders R Stewart and Mary Taylor.You were correct... he had remarried and that helped me find that his first wife had died leaving two children. If all else fails, I will order the death certificate. Alabama's fee is $15 which isn't much but I don't need a copy but would just like to view it to see if the cemetery is noted. Since I have several that I would like to view, that would get expensive. Wonder why it is that some death certificates can be viewed and even printed online but others can't be even viewed.
