Deaths are in alphabetical order and in two volumes. There are two miscellaneous sections for vital statistics, items set aside for copying (which were missed when alphabetizing) and items that state persons of Cooke County attended funerals of in other places but did not name the person who had died but does tell where the funeral was held. These are on pages 123-124 and 216-219. BILLYE HOWE and SUE WOOD, members of the Cross Timbers Genealogical Society, compiled these in 1983 and 1934. The society paid for the laminating and binders.
