Her father is listed as ....Aiken, mother unknown. She was in the Kerrville State Hospital when she died.

Go to -- https://familysearch.org/s/collection/show#uri=http://search-api:8080/searchapi/search/collection/1320964&hash=Mrd8SMocDIIen2Q83tu%252B82PRagg%253D -- Click on advanced search and enter her name and year of death. You will need to register, it is the LDS site. They will ask you for a user name and a password. Keep track of it and you can use it over and over. When you get to the page showing a document on the left side, click on it. The document will probably be too small to read and you can use the slide + or - to enlarge it. In the future if you find a document that is shown side ways, click on rotate to get it to a vertical form. You can print a copy of the original document, too.

I see a Soc Sec number on her DC. Have you obtained a copy of the application she filled out to get her SS? Go to -- http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/ -- Click on Advance Search, enter her name, Buchanan, Helen and year of death 1969, click on submit. You'll find her on the list. Go to the right and in the column listed as Tools click on the first little icon. You will see a letter with all the information ready to be printed out, including her SS number. After you print out the letter, you enter the amount of your check. Be sure to fill in your address so they will know where to send a copy of her application. The application should contain the names of her parents, her address when she applied etc.

Hope this helps.
