Here is the death certificate. Some blanks were not filled in, so I didn’t type the questions for those. The certificate confirms that Jesse Floyd was buried at Rozar, so I guess Jesse Taylor’s grave is his. That’s not for certain, though, but the dates are indeed very close. By the way, on the certificate where it says “date of death,” someone wrote May 24, and then wrote a 5 over the 4. If you would like to have a photocopy of the death certificate, e-mail me at my home e-mail address, give me your frail snail mail address, and I will mail it to you. You can get my e-mail address by clicking on Donald Floyd. Many thanks for the offer on lookups. I don't need anything right now, but I'm sure I will down the road. I plan to put my book on CD and make it available.
