Talk:Florida Court Records

I know that my great grandfather was killed when he fell off a train just five miles north of Ocala in 1897. An inquest was held and I would like to see the court record from the inquest, as to any facts or findings. His name is (George) Calvin Miles. I cannot find where he is buried or what happened to his wife, Belle McAllister Miles, after his death. She is my great grandmother, and it is sad to me that this tragedy has caused me to be unable to honor them and visit their graves. Their two children (my grandmother and her sister) went to live with their aunt and uncle by the 1900 census. I would appreciate knowing whether it is possible to access the inquest record in August of 1897.
