Appears Robert, "Jr." died 1980 in Dallas, no digitized copies that late. And, Walter Brown, "Jr." died 1989 also in Dallas.

Looks like they all are buried in the Edgewood Cemetery. I'd check to see if by chance Lafayette is buried there, too. TX didn't really start officially keeping vital records until 1903 and even then some counties didn't get organized right away.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
