I know this is an old post, but the TX Dth Idx 1890-1976 came online recently. You can view digitized copies of the original death records.
Jerry Marr Grimes, b 12 May 1890, TX; d 25 Aug 1969, Marlin, Falls Co, TX; widowed; buried Calvary Cemetery; informant Fletcher Grimes, brother. Names of parents not reported.
Fletcher Estelle Grimes, b 3 Dec 1898, TX; d 29 Mar 1974, Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto Co, TX; married; informant Mrs. Florence Grimes; father George Grimes; mother Emily Davis.
Now, accuracy of death certificates only as good as the knowledge of the informant. At first names of parents through me off.
1900 census Tyler Co, TX:

You can view DC for John, he died 1936 -- http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?..#w=;p=2;c=1320964;t=searchable -- You might want to look at Jerry's, too. Funeral Home is listed.
I don't see births for Jerry on the TX Birth Idx 1926-1949. Now you have full date of death, you might look for an obituary. Often survivors are listed.
Happy Hunting (^_^)
