Looking for information on Luther Cullins. There is a Luther Cullins and Myrtia Cullins buried in the Memory Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Roswell, Chaves County. I am trying to determine if this is the brother of my grandmother Minta E Cullins. I have no information about his marriage or specific date of death. Any information about his marriage to Myrtia or an obit would be greatly appreciated.

Here you go - you know if you go to the last day of the month and look then the obit is at the front and vice versa. If I had just started at the last and worked backwards - oh well - had some others to look up today so gave this one one more look.
