Genealogue Challenge #98

No one has taken up my last challenge yet. I'll try not to take it personally.

I remember Sterling Holloway from his guest roles on The Andy Griffith Show and Gilligan's Island, but the younger set will know him as the voice of Disney's Winnie the Pooh.

What was the full name of his maternal grandmother's undertaker?

Found the death certificate of Rebecca Boothby in Polk County GA. Undertaker was D. L. Roberts.

Followed him through census records and many variations and mis-variations of names. Found his WWI Registration which shows:
Daniel Lowther Roberts
born 6 Mar 1876 (which matches census records).

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.

Chris

You got it. He was called "Danie" in a couple of censuses.
