I know this is an old post, but TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 hasn't been online for long. You can view digitized copies of the original death certificates.

First I tracked Arthur, in 1900 he is living with his parents Marion and Nancy. By 1930 he is living in Real Co, TX with his sister Sarah and her husband Joseph W. Haynes, and is listed as Arthur J. Sharp. This information ties the following record together.

Arthur Jesse Sharp, b 12 Aug 1894[sic], Barksdale [Edwards Co} TX; d 8 Jan 1950 Sanderson, Terrel Co, TX; buried 9 Jan 1950 Leakey, Real Co, TX; father Marion Decalo Sharp, b Little Rock, AR; mother Nancy Irene Jennings, b MO; informant J. W. Haynes [that would be his brother-in-law Joseph W. Haynes]

If you don't already have copies of the death certificates for Marion and Nancy, you can view them. Marion d 1924 and Nancy 1926. Middle names for both are spelled differently then Arthur's DC. All are buried in Leakey.
