I would assume the informant on Lula's death certificate was her son-in-law.

I checked the Titus Co, TX GenWeb site - http://www.hiddenancestors.com/titustx/ - They have the Union Hill Cemetery on there and only Willie Wicker is listed, nothing on Belle. There is a description of the cemetery and apparently there are several obvious graves with only a plain cement marker etc. So, some of your family may be buried there with out readable headstones.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
