Have you requested the death record from the state of Texas. For death records go here: http://www.tdh.state.tx.us/bvs/registra/cert.htm Post 1903 death records are kept at the state level. Keep in mind that the recording keeping was very poor even as recent as 1930 in Texas so there simply may be no death certificate for the people you are researching.

As for marriage records, they should be at the county level before the 1960s. Have you tried nearby counties such as Houston Co.?
