Where did this index come from?
The Brake Funeral Home was founded in 1905 by Arthur H. Brake. Born in 1863, Mr. Brake came here from Bourneville, Ohio, in 1886. He became the first licensed director in this part of Florida. He turned over the business to his son in 1935 and the business was sold to T. Woody Smith in 1946. The Brake Funeral Home actually operated in several locations in Bay County during its existence. Arthur died in 1948.
