Can you help? According to my mother her grandfather went missing prior to 1920. He left and didn't return. While researching my family's history, I discovered that there was a Ned Scott, who died in Lake Providence on May 29, 1921. He fits lthe description of my great-grandfather. He would have been the same age as the deceased Ned Scott. If anyone knows or heard stories about a person who may have died and his family couldn't be notified, contact me through this medium. The informant on the cerificate of death was Mary Scott.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

He would have been 67-68 if he died in 1921.
Louisiana started recording deaths in1914, try the vital records
of course birth and death dates can be wrong.

Any other info would be helpful....
