Re: Toler/Pittsylvania County
In Response To: Toler/Pittsylvania County ()
It seems a solution may to try and obtain the death certificate for the Toler you don't know and perhaps his parents are listed or the informant may be related. The likelihood is that there is no death certificate if he died before 1915. You could follow him out on the census if see if there are other common naming similarities, in other words, children and grandchildren of his that have the same first names as those in your Toler family. If so, that may indicate that the families were related. I am assuming that Pittsylvania County you refer to is in Virginia.
