Index of Unknowns

Note: The 'Index of Unknowns' is derived from the BVGSQ XI(2):70-71. 'Court Record': (from Bill Page) "Most often, this means that all of the information was taken either from the person's death certificate (in the Brazos County court house), or else the Bryan City Sexton's records (which we have a copy of on microfilm at the Evans Library).

The Sexton's records in the 1920s through the 1940s listed everyone who died in the city of Bryan and who were buried elsewhere, normally including the name of the cemetery where they were buried."
