Name: Tom Welch

I am searching for information regarding one of my ancestors, Harriet Jane Owens Heyns. I believe she is the Mrs. Heyns (Heynes) buried at the Seneca Cemetery in Lake County, Florida. She moved to the Eustis, Grand Island area of Lake County with her husband and family (from South Carolina) around 1900. They settled along what is now Highway 44-A and we are not sure whether or not their home was along the road a few miles east or west of Highway 19. She was killed by a runaway horse and buggy and we believe it happened sometime between 1910 and 1920. The family knows she was buried in Lake County in the Eustis area. Her husband eventually followed the remainder of the family to Pompano Beach in Broward County, Florida. He died and is buried in the Pompano Beach cemetery. Therefore she could be buried by herself. Last weeked I visited the Seneca Cemetery with my parents and we found Mrs. Heynes' grave. Do you have any ideas how we could go about researching the grave to determine if in fact she is our grandmother? I am in the process of researching to write a family book and would appreciate any assistance or ideas you may have. Where are the cemetery records kept at the county level? What newspaper publication was in operation in the early 1900s? Thank you in advance for your help. *NOTE: This email address is incorrect, please send corrected address.
