I am looking for a death record or burial location for William E. Westfall, born May 11, 1857, in Indiana. He came to Texas, married Ary Henrietta Newman in Bexar County in 1885, settled near Floresville in Wilson County, and they had 7 children. About 1902, he left his family, moved to Oklahoma and was not heard from again.

In the 1910 U.S. Census, he is shown as a "hired man" in McIntosh County, Cobb Township in Oklahoma:
WESTFALL, WM. E. -- 1910 U.S. Census, Oklahoma, McIntosh Co., Cobb Twp., Age 52, Male, Race: White, Born: IN (Indiana); Series: T624 Roll: 1260 Page: 173.

But in the 1920 U.S. he is shown as a head of Household in Kleberg Co., Texas, in 3 J-PCT (Justice Precinct 3):
WESTFALL, WILLIAM E. -- 1920 U.S. Census, Texas , KLEBERG, 3 J-PCT, Age 63, Male, Race: White, Born: IN (Indiana);
Series: T625 Roll: 1826 Page: 85.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
