Looking for information on the Flake family. His name was John W. Flake with a number of children. Trying to find where he and his wife are buried. He passed away in the 1930s or early 1940?

Violet A. Baker was the daughter of Milton Baker and while they resided in Vernon County she married William Jefferson Holston. This might help in identifying the Baker family that I am searching for.

I recently learned that my Great Aunt's son Elias T. Rambo is buried in the Deepwood Cemetery with his wife Mary. If there any family members still living in the area I would appreciate there getting in touch with me. Also if anyone can locate an obituary on Elias, I would appreciate receiving a copy.
