      Family burials at that time and before, the family or neighbors would have washed the body, wrapped it in a shroud or placed in a home made coffin and then buried on the farm, if in a family cemetery there might be a stone or record but in a backyard I doubt if there is any record and the location over the years was lost unless there was a stone.  Many people in Jackson Co. at this time were very poor and could not afford a coffin or stone.
       
      If they were buried at a cemtery with a stone it should be on the mega cemetery file under Links at the Group Home Website, the surveryers usually indicate whether there are graves marked only with field stones or no markers with just sunken graves.

      Clay,
      Are there any records at the city, county, or local churches for burials in Paint Rock cemeteries?  Say in the early 1900s?  Seems the child I'm looking for may have been buried in a back yard at the time!?

      Mike

      No birth or death record was required until 1908 and in many cases after no death report was filed. You have to get up into the 1930s before you start seeing many deaths reported.

      If someone died in Jackson Co AL in 1906, would there be death records that would include personal information such as parents, spouses, children or something similar?
       
      Looking for death records for Samantha Elizabeth Manes Cosby who is said to have died in 1906, most likely in Jackson Co Al. Can't find her marriage license or her burial location. She supposedly married Lafayette Cosby in 1892 and could have married him in Arkansas instead of AL.
