Deaths in 1919 & Obtaining a Death Certificate

My husbands G-Mother-MARTHA VIOLA HOLT-& two youngest children-ARVID MARTIN HOLT Jr. & FRANCES E. HOLT-died between Apr & Aug 1919 during one of the epidemics. I do not know if it was Flu or Smallpox. About 12 years ago the Lady that ran Mt.Olivet Cemetery was gracious enough to show us the actual cemetery books where ARVID MARTIN HOLT putchased the plots. I did not have a digital camera at that time & did not think to take a picture of the book or pictures of the beautiful entrance or the graves. At the time I believe there were the brick size markers for the children.
I have been to OK City to get the Death Certificates for any of the three. They of course took my money and then kept asking me "Are you sure they died in Hugo, Choctaw CO.". We then went back to Hugo and no one there has any record of their deaths. Does anyone have any suggestion how to get some documentation?
In the 1920 Census A.M.Holt with his remaining children lived on West Clayton RD.. ARVID MARTIN HOLT worked for the Ice Plant and delivered ice. My husbands father-AUBRY LEE HOLT-helped his father deliver ice. Does anyone have a picture of the Ice Plant?
Looking for HOLT & ROGERS. Thanks-Sandra in TX
