Information on Troy Cemetery Burial 1926-27
September 30, 2011 05:48PM
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 Troy cemetery her father and subsequently mother are buried. But I was told their records seem to have been lost in a fire some years later. I understand that someone completed at least two cemetery burial books. Might they have information on the date my grandmother died and then was buried in 26-27. She was named Annie Lee Stapleton at time of death (Roberts prior to her marriage) and was from Troy. Her mother Mattie Roberts, and I believe her father (Henry C Roberts) are recorded at the Troy Cemetery. There was apparently no headstone for Annie Lee according to my mother.

Thank you in advance.
