I sent a second email to the Cochran Mortuary for more information on Alfred Soares.  I hope that they respond.  The mortuary need to know my relation to the deceased before releasing any information.  Alfred Soares is my great granduncle.  I hope that although I am not a direct descendant, the mortuary will provide me with some information.  If not I will have to post a cemetery lookup request to the local genealogical society or something like that.  It’s tough being so close.  At the same time, the mortuary is a business and answering these kinds of data requests are understandably not the top priority.  I’ll keep you posted.
