Hi S C,
Have you looked for his obituary in Shreveport, LA? Do you know that there are two Shreveport's? One in Bossier and one in Caddo Counties?
I assume the tombstone was not found in a Cemetery in Dallas County. Have you checked all the cemeteries in Dallas County? If not, here is a list of places which list indexes of Cemeteries.
USGenWeb Archives Project, Texas Tombstones, http://www.usgwarchives.org/tx/cemph/cemphoto.html and choose Dallas County.
Tombston photos can be found on Dallas County Tombstone Photos, http://www.usgwarchives.org/tx/dallas/cemeteries.html .
Jim Wheat's Dallas County Texas Archives lists cemetery surveys, http://freepages.history.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~jwheat/ .
Tombstone Transcription Projecct Dallas County, http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cemetery/Texas/dallas.html .
A Donna at Random Acts of Genelogical Kindness, www.raogk.org , choose Texas, choose Dallas County does cemetery photos. I don't know if she has any Cemetery indexes or surveys or not.
The work you are attempting to do is SO important. When my girlfriend's grandparents homestead was sold, the new owners found that the stone they stepped on to get in the front door was an upside-down tombstone. Her family had walked on it for 50 years and never realized what they were stepping on. They were VERY glad to get it back and install it in a cemetery (the person had died and was buried on the homestead generations before but no one knew where the deceased was buried so they had it implanted in a local cemetery). Successful Searching!
