I’ve Waited 10 Years For This Document!

Due to the State of Louisiana’s policy that ordering certified copies of death certificates for deaths that occurred in Louisiana less than 51 years ago is prohibited, I’ve had to wait 10 years to to acquire this death record for my 3x great grandmother’s sister, Delia Washington Brown, better known as “Aunt Dutsey.”  Well, I finally received it in the mail yesterday!!!  I now know the name of her former husband.

What really caught my attention was the informant for the information: Mrs. Alberta Lawrence.  Alberta was the granddaughter of Delia’s sister, Martha Shields England, and therefore, Delia’s great niece!
