I would be deeply appreciative for in help in locating any information on my great-great-grandmother, Louise Tanner. It is my understanding that she died in Fruitland Park, Florida. And my great-grandmother, Catherine Adonia Tanner. Both may be buried at the same cemetery but I'm not sure. Louise Tanner was a former slave from a North or South Carolina, when she moved to Fruitland Park, it must be sometime between 1865 and 1887. Catherine Tanner, my great-grand mother, must have died sometime around 1908. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks. Larry Johnson

I am looking for more information on the parents of my husband's grandmother. Her name was Flora Belle (Miller) Minnix Elkins. She was born 05/25/1882 in Wise County, VA and died 09/08/1971 in Wildwood, Sumter County, FL. She is buried at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens in Leesburg West, Lake County, FL. She was buried on 09/11/1971. She was married to Elias Elkins at the time of her death and I believe he may have died the same year, maybe even the same day, I'm not sure. I can't seem to find her on the SSDI under any of her names. She is listed with her previous husband James Monroe Minnix on a Family Group Record on the LDS Family Search site. It lists her mother as Katherine Wells and her father as Aaron Miller. That is the only record I have been able to find on her. I was hoping to find out how to get a copy of her death certificate. I thought you might be able to help there since she is buried in Lake County, FL. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me. Lori Craiger uni62corn@hotmail.com
