States: Texas: Dallas
Doris, either I missed it or you left out a key bit of information: who did she marry in 1899? From that point on, she will likely be listed in any record by her married name. Of course, that presumes that she didn't have multiple marriages. Since she died in 1944 then she will not appear in the Social Security Death Index, if that's what you are referring to but it doesn't mean that she didn't apply for a SSN. You would have to request a search for her SS5 to be sure. Texas death records are online and free to search but it'll have to be done using her married name. That assumes that she actually died in Texas, do you know? A death certificate might list her parents' names. Further, you indicate that she had a guardian when she married in 1899. Makes sense, she was only 15 years old and thus a minor. There should be gurardianship papers, presumably in Dallas County if that's where her parent(s) resided at death. Guardianship papers can provide a great deal of information. Rick
