Actually his death certificate states that his parents' names are unknown. His birthdate and place of birth (Centralia, IL) are listed, but this only means that whoever gave the information believed that he was born in Centralia.
If he had married in Illinois his application for a marriage license would have asked him for his parents' names and places of birth. I am not familiar with Missouri marriage licenses so I don't know if they would have that information or not.
