I am searching for proof of Abner B. Brand's birth. His death certificate does not show a mother and father, only that he was born in Jones County, Texas. Does anyone know of an obituary for Abner? He died July 30, 1943, in Jacksonville, Cherokee County, Texas, but was a resident of the Rock Hill Community. I have requested that Jones County officials search for a copy of a birth certificate, but I do not believe they will be successful in finding one. If you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. My husband, Dennis, is attempting to join the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR). All the family connections back to the American Revolution must be proved, but Abner's birth is the single missing link in the chain of proof.
