Funeral Home Information

My maternal grandmother died in Sanatorium, MS, but I believe her body was brought from there by McDowell & Monteverde funeral home in Memphis. There was no death certificate issued in late 1926 or early 1927 in MS for her. I believe the Memphis funeral home then took her to be buried in Troy, TN at the cemetery her father and subsequently mother are buried. But their records seem to have been lost in a fire some years later. My inquiry, does any know if McDowell and Monteverde (later mayor of Memphis) was acquired by an existing funeral home that I could contact for their old records search.

Thank you in advance.
