  1. I am hoping you can help me. My father was living in Evansville and died there in an awful wreck on Dec. 31, 1965. His name was James Roger Peak. He was born in Daviess County Kentucky. (We lived in Owensboro). His body was originally taken to Boone Funeral home but then moved to Glenn Funeral Home in Owensboro. I have not been able to locate a death certificate. Glenn Funeral Home has no record of it, and after checking for me, told me Boone did not have it either. I would sincerely appreciate any help. It has been a long time and we have gathered info and pictures but this last piece of info we do not know how to find. I thank you very much for your time.
