I am searching for the burial site and any other information connected to Frederick R Watts. Fred was born in Georgia in 1919 and died in Chicago, Illinois in 1953. His death certificate says he was buried in Plant City, FL. Any other information connected to his siblings or parents would also be appreciated. God bless!
